    Stromile Swift dunked on Yao Ming tonight like he was a rag doll. This is a future poster / media guide cover for sure.

    What is the best way to make a name for yourself in the NBA? Dunk on Yao.

    Stromile scored 18 off the bench to lead Memphis to a win 99-80 (9 wins in the last 10 games). If anyone can locate and post a video link of the dunk that would be great...

    I saw that, Stuart Scott freezed it and put "YAO-OCH" in the middle of it and made it a poster. Haha, it was great!

    Like the Chris Mihm "Dunk Denied" in the NCAA's,
    this could be a defining moment/pic for Stro...

    ...against a MUCH better player than Mihm....

    ...In a word, AWESOME.

    An NBA player gets a dunk? Who'd a thunk?

    Ok, here is the video - if you think this is "just a dunk" you are tough to please. He gets the ball 15 feet from the basket. Yao Ming is 7' 6" - Click the link and the video is on the right side.

    great dunk, but unfortunately that's the best part of Stro's game. this kid needs to develop a consistent jump shot and then he may get out of that middle tier of NBA players.

    The "Stro Show" was in full effect last night!!! He sent the roof off the Forum with that Dunk!! Bill Walton and Bob Lanier were sitting in the suite next to mine last night and they were high fiving each other after the Yao facial!!!!

    Last year, Stro was on the verge of being trade bait out of town, but he has shown much improvement this year and has truly become a significant player, that the Memphis fans love!!!! His jump shot is getting much better... He is representing the state and LSU VERY well, these days, even before the YAOUCH!!!!
