Joe's video application only hints at his head-on-rim dunk
Head over to NBA.com and vote for Joe Alexander as the fourth and final contestant in the 2009 edition of the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. His NBA highlight reel is unfortunately pretty short at this point, but back at West Virginia he showed a pretty nice arsenal: from the foul line, alley-oops, the honey-dip, and of course that monster dunk on Stanley Robinson in the Big East Tourney.
Dwight Howard, Rudy Gay, and Nate Robinson (ugh, again?) are already in, which leaves Alexander competing with Rudy Fernandez and Russell Westbrook for the final spot. Joe has the white American guy novelty factor going for him, but don't underestimate the power of Blazer Nation (and Spain for that matter).
Gery Woelfel wrote the other day that Alexander's been working on a dunk where he hits his head on the rim twice before dunking, though the video above only teases that one. Hopefully someone gave Joe a helmet for Christmas or something.
