Think back to high school and the street cred that would be associated with destroying a backboard while dunking during a game. Joshua (TX) senior Tyler Stone is living that lifestyle right now after he shattered his home court backboard during a recent game that had to be completed in an auxiliary gym.
Stone’s accomplishment is being passed around all the cool high school social media sites out there, like OutKick, Overtime, MaxPreps, TikTok, etc. Things have gotten so crazy for Stone (6’3, 185 lbs.) that he’s even gone as far as launching Instagram Questions on Instagram Story for those who need to hear more about his incredible accomplishment.
Watch the ref. He knows what’s up. He knows Morgan Ballin’ is about to become a legend at Morgan Wallen-Looking school.
Tyler and his Joshua team are 5-6 early in the season and went 10-24 a year ago. In other words, this isn’t a basketball factory. This dunk will be talked about by Joshuans for the next century, and the story will get more outlandish by the year. 95 years from now, when social media and video evidence of the dunk are long gone, the old timers will talk about how Stone took off from half-court and flew through the air like an Amazon drone delivering 110″ TVs and destroyed that backboard.
Enjoy this moment in the sun, kid.
