Former St. Paul Johnson Player Dunking Phenom Story
I recall telling you about a dunk contest held at Harriet Island last summer. The winner of that event, former St. Paul Johnson player and St. Paul native, Terry Cournoyea, is going to be judged by LeBron James in the finals of the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown next Friday (2/18) in Los Angeles as part of NBA All-Star weekend. He had to win the Taste of MN tour stop and then beat out the rest of the semi-finalists via an online vote on www.nba.com/dunk to become a finalist.
He played in the 2004 MN state tournament and is now widely considered one of the best – if not the best – dunkers in the world by street ball circles nationwide. You can see highlights from his Fourth of July win HERE. You can also read about the finals that he will be competing in HERE.
