Default Underrated dunk by Pops Mensah-Bonsu

Check out this pretty good dunk by Pops Mensah-Bonsu done in the 2006 summer league, while playing for the Dallas Mavericks -> it's 1:31 through this vid - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8m10c...eature=related.

It's very underrated, I wonder what happened to Pops.

It's very underrated, I wonder what happened to Pops.

He's currently playing in Spain. He took part in the ACB slam dunk contest last week, finishing second to Serge Ibaka.

I was at the ACC when the Raptors played the Pacers and remembered 2 big dunks both he and Shawn Marion had. Pops almost had a 20/10 game that day. After the game, he was getting interviewed and they plugged the mic to the who arena and I think it was Jack or Leo that asked what the crowd thought of his performance... everyone gave Pops a standing ovation. He got a little embarrassed when we did that for him.

But hey, it doesn't matter who's on this team. You play well, star or not, your going to hear it.
