Slam Dunk Contest 2012 Video: Jeremy Evans Pays Tribute To Karl Malone

It's become a tradition recently in the dunk contest for the participants to pay tribute to legends from their team or their personal basketball heroes. One dunk after Chase Budinger decided to pay tribute to Cedric Ceballos by duplicating his blindfolded dunk, Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz decided to pay tribute to one of the greatest players in that franchise's history, Karl Malone.

Actor and comedian Kevin Hart came out dressed as a mailman, delivered Evans a throwback jersey and then stood under the hoop. Evans put the jersey on and jumped over Hart before throwing down an impressive dunk.

The dunk itself was solid and the tribute to Malone was a nice touch, but dunking over Kevin Hart? Paul George dunked over 7'2" Roy Hibbert. It would be stunning if Hart was even 5'6".
