Division II player’s incredible “Superman” dunk probably shouldn’t have counted

Seriously, how is that not a charge?

The player laying down that monster dunk is Cal State San Bernardino’s Kwame Alexander, a 6-foot-7, 240-pound beast of forward who instantly becomes the greatest player named Kwame in the history of basketball.  Not like he had much competition to begin with, but blown charging call or not, that was a seriously impressive dunk over a helpless Cal State Stanislaus defender.  The refs were probably in awe of Kwame’s Superman-style slam from just inside the foul line that they didn’t make the charging call because they could not believe what they were seeing.

Dunk of the year?  Maybe, maybe not, but it’s in the top five for sure.

    Dunk my ass,it was a blatant foul..

  • dgm1974

    The Player flopped.  If he stayed in place and took the contact, offensive foul. But he flopped and did not take the contact.  He anticipated to much.

  • trav1056

    The defender pussed out and flinched before the guy even got to him. He
    basically laid down which created very little contact between the two
    players. That’s why it didn’t warrant a charge. Their has to be some
    discretion on the part of the ref when it comes to charges, because the
    rule is already being abused by every runt who doesn’t have a chance at
    defending against a more dominant player.

    Just inside the foul line??  Try 3-4 feet inside the foul line d*ckbump!

  • Gritsboy

    If the defender had stayed vertical the offensive player would have probably hit the floor on his head! Good thing he “pussed out”, for the guy with the ball.

  • DH

    No way that was a charge. Good defensive attempt to make it look like one but there was no contact. Good call ref.

  • Tom D

    This should not be on the net as a dunk but a blantant foul that was not called. The defender fell back but had his feet planted before this guy left the floor. His falling back was enhanced by a player plowing into him. A foul either way-just a little more aggressive contact had he held better ground with the possibility of one if not two players getting hurt.

    Nice Dunk but its a charge all day. Refs became fans on that play.

    • Iyaroots

      You’re kidding right?

  • Gesharps

    The defender flopped. He barely go touched. If you look closely you’ll see he raised his crossed arm up. Sorry, no charge!

  • K Spelt

    The defensive player flopped and did not take a charge. High five to the ref for not calling a charge and letting the play stand.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/UROYTSJAEEV72TQNNBZWYGDO7U YourAvgFella

    No contact, ole boy fell before dude dunk on him. so he flopped & that’s why there wasn’t a call

  • http://twitter.com/EyesLipsHips Addicted

    interesting…i dont even watch basketball but i do have two eyes. I watched this clip and in MY opinion the guy falling out was fake. #1 he didnt hit his head on the ground #2 he got up off the floor to quick…..I dont know if that was a “jaw dropping dunk” but he was certainly high enough in the air not to cause the player that just stood there any foul…

  • Anonymous

    It’s not a charge because the defender fell before being hit by the offensive player. It was just so obvious that the refs didn’t fall for it. That guy saw that he would be kneed in the face and decided to lay down.

  • Iyaroots

    not a charge…dude flopped! #sickofbitchassnessonthecourt

  • swammy

    For those of you saying it was a charge, LOOK CLOSER!!

  • Larry Paige

    This was definitely not a charge!

  • Anonymous

    That would have been his last dunk attempt on me because I wouldve laid his ass out for even thinking he could do that on me! I’m old school and that was just disrespectful for him tho think that ol’ boy would just stand there and allow him to rise to that level without “Bill Laimbeering” his ass!

  • smd

    This should be a charge… absolutely ridiculous to expect a person to take a solid blow to the face or groin when the intent by the offensive player is clearly to go through defensive position.

    However, basketball rule books were not written for the modern league where people jump knee defenders in the face and go over them to make highlight reels. Dumb fans want highlights at the expense of good fundamentals; refs probably call the defender for undercutting if he stays there.

  • MRO

    San antonio has won 9 straight and parker has outplayed them all.. where is the hoopla!!! iguodala, mayweather statements have merit.

  • dontbstupid

    as soon as dudes legs brushed against dudes forearms, foul.

  • dontbstupid

    the guy can “flinch”, or “flop”, all day… his feet were planted in a position that’d call for the charge. and obviously the other guy wasn’t slowing down, he could have too the hit and potentially gotten seriously injured. smart move, bad ref for the no-call.

  • Robo24

    Count the basket! No charge was the right call.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mattybarks Matt Barker

    Clearly, a player-control foul. If you pause the video right when contact is made, the offensive player had his knees going into the chest/foreman of the defender, who has his feet set firmly to the floor establishing position. Wasn’t a flop at all.
