Dunigan would be a good choice

Vasiljevic is the reserve.

re: Whos going in the Dunk Comp now Mitch Creek's out?

Was crazy watching the Sixers warm up last night compared to the Crocs. The Crocs only have two guys who can actually physically dunk it in game (Blanchfield and Nevill), while everyone on the Sixers can seemingly throw it down.

Crocs have two guys in Jacob Holmes and Mitch Norton who can't even dunk it in a warm up.

Ben Allen has been playing in the league three years, is 6"11', and hasn't dunked it once in a game.

Half of that Sixers roster would go alright in the dunk comp.

I can guarantee anyone who doubts it, that Jacob Holmes can most certainly dunk it. Was actually measured as having one of the highest standing vertical leaps when at the AIS, and lets not forget the choice he had to make as a teenager... AIS for Volleyball or Basketball. Vertical being a huge pre requisite for volleyball.
Just because he chooses not to dunk, doesn't mean he cant. I have personally seen some very nasty dunks from the man himself.

I know he used to be able to, and have seen some nice ones back in his dragons days, but just wasn't too sure if he could any more.

Haven't seen a dunk in game OR warm up in two seasons as a Croc. You would think he would throw one through in a warm up for posterity at least once...

Norton would be able to dunk I'd say.

I don't know how NBL players use the warm up, but me personally I use it as a time to go through movements and put up shots that I would get in game situations (like pull-ups, catch and shoots, reverse layups, spin dribble layups).

I can dunk, but dunking in warm-up seems to be just a way of showing everyone that you can dunk.

Some may prefer not to dunk in warmup, especially if they know that dunking isn't part of their natural game. e.g. Holmes

Have seen Norton try and come up short a couple of times in a warm-up. Not quite there. Not that it matters.

Supposedly Shane Heal (who couldnt palm a full size basketball) used to be able to dunk a volleyball back in the day.

True story.

Really? So basically someone used to be unable to dunk a basketball? That's pretty impressive.

"someone used to be unable to dunk a basketball?"
Where in this thread did anyone say that?

Isaac is correct, Pero Vasiljevic was named as the reserve for the Dunk Competition so he'll replace Creek.
