Saw this via Whitfield's Twitter account:
Also, another picture from his workout:
I'm really excited to see him on the field this fall!
Ah, video embed didn't work in OP. Here it is again:
"I can fly...what do you mean?"
The man is at minimum 6'4" and more than likely would need to leap roughly only 16 inches to reach the 10' rim. I think you are persuaded by what he does with his feet that might give the imrpression of being higher than he actually is. A better measurement, given his height and average corresponding reach for same, would be how high his hand-wrist at rim level-is when he dunks the ball. That would indicate a leap of about 26 inches and that is, of course while moving. This is in no way out of the ordinary, especially for a man his size. I have no idea if he was merely attempting to dunk the ball leisurely or if he was actually attempting to do so with maximum lift. That would also make a difference I'm certain.
Devin is the kind of guy you want your daughter dating. Seems like a stand up guy.
Only if he learns to dunk without travelling, though.
In the NBA that wouldn't be a travel.
i'm not aware of anywhere in the world where that would be considered a travel.
But can you not go flying around and dunking a basketball. kthxbai.
SOMEONE GET THE BUBBLEWRAP!!!!!!!
Well, one if you count a scenario in which he would wear that shirt while playing Louisville...
Yeah, maybe the first traveling dude was joking, but it wasn't a travel. Not even in a high school game.
It's odd that a video of a guy dunking would help you reach this conclusion.
Virtually the entire NBA and most college basketball players are qualified to date your daughter(s), if and when you have them.
What evidence is there to support that this video changed his idea of Devin (or his daughter, for that matter)? There is not. You also missed the point: "Devin is a stand-up guy." Devin has character attributes such that he would want Devin to date his daughter (he wants his daughter to find qualified matches). And finally, the killer: why would Devin be qualified to date his daughter(s) if and WHEN he has them? Dear god, I don't think Devin is qualified to date a newborn daughter. Magnus, this comment is an abomination, and the world needs an apology.
the whole world apology thing. He just owes "mgomaizenblue" a modicum of respect for an innocent, positive post.
What guy wants his daughter to date an athlete??? I want my daughter (when the time comes) to date a socially-acclimated nerd with a good work ethic.
I never would have guessed he could dunk.
I never would have guessed that you were using sarcasm.
....if he gets me 50 yd line tickets for each home game!
How cute is your wife?
I've woken up to worse after a night at Rick's.
it's all that crap booze they use in the shark bowls....
You can't be classy without a tit tat.
Enjoy those seats
She said I was the only one!!!!!
Goddammit, I got taken in by her good looks, infectious smile, and willingness to use anal beads!
I can't believe she would cheat on me.
.....make that 50 yard line in one of the luxury suites
I was so worried about the QB position for 2013. At that point Devin had very limited experience at QB and was solely focused on being a WR. I was also worried about throwing a freshman in there even though it worked quite nicely with Henne. However the way he stepped in and performed and the way he is training in the offseason is so exciting. Can't wait to see him play the next two years while it allows Morris to ease into the system and be ready once Devin leaves. The start of the season couldn't come soon enough. I'm ready!
I can't even imagine what Borges would think up with a flying player... MOAR BUBBLE SCREENS!
But for the love of everything holy please avoid freak accidents, as our insurance policy looks bleak beyond DG. Every time I see one these videos I'm reminded of stories like Suggs last year. I know injuries can happen anywhere, doing anything, but lets try and stay healthy going into the fall season. Go Blue!
I love DG but no one would be good enough for my daughter.
of a secret agreement between Hoke and Beilein.
McGary - PF / TE
Gardner - QB / SG
