Slam Dunk Contest 2012 Video: Chase Budinger Does The Cedric Ceballos

Chase Budinger went for a simple, but classic dunk for his third attempt, paying homage to Cedric Ceballos by breaking out the blindfold. With Ceballos looking on, Budinger blindfolded himself, took his run-up ... and missed on his first attempt.

So of course this presented an opportunity to bring the audience into the mix. Ceballos gave Budinger a few words of advice, then the crowd counted out the steps to the hoop. Either this was an elaborate rouse -- come on, Ced's blindfold had holes -- or he really couldn't see.

The crowd and Kenny told him when to jump on the second try and wouldn't you know it, he did! And he pulled off a reverse jam, so that's something neat, I guess.

As a reminder, the fans are doing the voting this year. For more on the process, head over here.
