Slam Dunk Contest 2012 Video: Derrick Williams Windmills Over A Harley

Derrick Williams hasn't had a terrific rookie season for the Minnesota Timberwolves, but the No. 2 overall selection in the 2011 NBA Draft is probably the highest profile name in the dunk contest due to his college career. He made one hell of an entrance, unexpectedly coming in on the back of a motorcycle driven by the T'Wolves mascot. Said motorcycle was then parked under the basket so he could dunk over it.

Less impressive than a Kia? Yes, almost certainly, but Blake Griffin didn't unexpectedly ride in on the Kia. Additionally, a Harley Davidson is inherently better than a Kia. Williams missed his first two attempts at a windmill dunk over the bike, but he converted on his third attempt.

Fans might penalize him for missing twice, but his first dunk was certainly more impressive than Jeremy Evans', and Paul George also needed multiple attempts.
