Basketball Dunks Are Better When Swinging From a Bridge

Forget using a trampoline to up your dunking game like some half-time NBA mascot. Go find yourself a bridge over a lazy river like the Dunking Devils did, attach a swing and a hoop, and you’ll be pulling off dunks like the NBA All-Star game has never seen before. Read More >>
