Sure he looks unassuming now, what with his red hair, Gloria Vanderbilt collection glasses, and seemingly awkward teenage physique, but in 1990 this kid was the premier basement basketball player.  Once you see his flashy moves and jaw-dropping dunks, you’ll know where Michael Jordan got much of his inspiration. If only the Internet and social media existed in the year 1990 this kid would have been huge.  Like if Jeremy Lin and Tim Tebow procreated, and the product of their love was this bespectacled ginger, that’s how huge this kid could have been.  Instead he’s probably just a guy in his mid-to-late 30s hoping this old video of his basement shenanigans goes viral enough to get featured on Tosh.O. Go ahead and pre-wet yourself in anticipation of these mind-blowing dunks… I’m betting he got grounded for basket-shattering final dunk. [Buzzfeed]
