    Must be talking about Yao Ming. I've never seen someone that tall miss so many dunks. Anyways, I think it's the fact that the other team is trying to defnd them in order to make the shot/ dunk a lot harder than it is. You have other 6'10 guys flying at you swinging at the ball. That will distract a lot of people. :1on1: You never know, he might have gotten fouled.

    Tall players miss dunks the same way that straight-away sprinters step out of the lines, fast-quick RBs miss the hole, Hockey players near the goal miss the goal, as well as soccer, and the quickest tennis players in the world miss the ball. Understand something my people:

    Just plain sorry I guess. It looks better when a smaller player dunks.

    peace,

    I think it's so easy for them because of their height that they take it for granted. Many of them are not athelete's anyway, they got there of their soley because of their height.........

    - jay-z has a verse that goes "U ain't no athelete/your'e Sean Bradley"
