Tweet of the Night: Dunk Contest Between Tony Mitchell and Rasheed Wallace

Leave a comment

It appears the big man can still get up there, well technically.

Maybe not as smooth as he use to be, Rasheed Wallace and Detroit Pistons forward Tony Mitchell squared off in a thrilling drunk competition at the end of the Pistons practice today.

 

Wallace, now an assistant coach with Detroit, use to get up there with the best of the big men and hammer down hard dunks. Though, never able to dunk like Vince Carter or Dr. J, opposing players would clear the area when he was going to the rim.

Mitchell, a 21-year-old high-flyer, has only appeared in two games with the Pistons so far this season. He’s averaging 1.5 points and .5 assists in about 6.5 minutes of action. Mitchell was selected 37th overall in the 2013 NBA draft by Detroit.

In honor of this great dunk competition, here’s a tribute to one of my all-time favorite dunks by Wallace.
