These Foot Locker Slam Fest Videos From The 90's Are All Sorts Of Awesome
In the top video we've got Prime Time, Griffey Jr. and track star Mike Conley Sr. (father of Grizz PG Mike Conley Jr.) showcasing their filthy hops in the Foot Locker Slam Fest. Conley's rock-the-cradle is on some Dr. J shit and #24's off the backboard reverse slam is a thing of beauty. Really makes wish that A) Deion became the first and only three sport professional athlete and B) that athletes from other sports would cross over and showcase their skills every now and then. Could you imagine Megatron, Jimmy Graham and Dez doing this kind of competition today? I'd throw a cool $10 down on a pay per view.
Highlights from the below video include a pre-juiced Barry Bonds missing a leftly slam, Deion dunking in a bucket hat, Michael Irving doing his best Chris Webber impersonation and the aforementioned Mike Conley Sr. dunking from WELL behind the free throw line.
