Video: Check Out a 5-Foot-8 Baller Shutdown a Dunk Competition

Though there have been a few little man dunkers over the years, it's still amazing to see someone under 6-foot soar above rim for an ill jam. The latest to join this exclusive club is 5-foot-8 Air Nigeria. Yes, you read that correctly. The African baller has been on the street ball scene for a couple years now and even came in second place at last year's Denver Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown. This year Air Nigeria came back for more and took home the dunk competition crown. Check out his dunks from this year's competition in the clip above. Hey David Stern, think homie can get a special invite to next year's NBA Slam Dunk contest? #yaneedhim #desperately
