James "Flight" White brought out eight flight attendants to line his runway, but, after leaping from the free-throw line and missing the first time with one hand, he jumped from one step in front of the line and dunked with two hands on his second attempt. Each of the judges gave him a 9 and he got a score of 45.
The dunk itself was hyped – everyone knew White was going to take off from the free-throw line – but he didn't execute, despite having done it time and time again before. It was an utter disappointment to everyone expecting White to dominate this contest, but it was a solid try.
Wow a 45 from jumping from free throw line 2 handed! @ least should of been a 49.— Jason Richardson (@jrich23) February 17, 2013
I think a 45 is about right, but because of what we were expecting and what we know White's capable of, I would have given it an 8.
