Slam Dunk Contest 2012 Video: Chase Budinger Dunks Over P. Diddy

Chase Budinger kicked off the Slam Dunk contest with a fantastic reference to Woody Harrelson and White Men Can't Jump, with an obviously staged skit that was made to look spontaneous. TNT analyst Kenny Smith came out with a mic and asked P. Diddy about his son and his new TV channel, before asking about his favorite basketball movie. Diddy answered with the Harrleson classic and Budinger appeared in a white tee and a backwards baseball cap.

Budinger, determined to prove to Diddy that white men can, in fact, jump, decided to jump over P. Diddy. The rap mogul was kind enough to throw the ball up to Budinger with a no-look, over the shoulder pass. Budinger jumped over Diddy and threw it down in impressive fashion.

For a first dunk, this was a good one for Budinger. He involved a celebrity and did something cool without bringing his best, leaving something in reserve for later rounds.
