WATCH: Jammer Jamito brings the funny with Japeth side step dunk
MANILA, Philippines - Barangay Ginebra San Miguel’s Jammer Jamito may not have the trophy at hand, but he certainly stole the show in this year’s PBA Slam Dunk contest held in Lucena City on Friday, April 28.
For his second dunk attempt in the preliminary round, the 6-foot-5 forward asked his Ginebra teammate Japeth Aguilar to stand under the rim.
The result, however, was one the fans did not see coming.
Instead of soaring and jumping, Jamito did the unthinkable as he completely avoided Aguilar to finish with a side-step slam.
While fans and viewers tagged him as this year’s showstopper, Jamito still failed to impress the judges as he received only 37 points for the particular dunk.
Jamito came up short in his mission to advance to the next round after tallying 76 points on two slams. – Rappler.com
