The NFL is saying no to dunking, but Megatron is saying yes.
"I'm still going to dunk. I just won't touch the rim." Johnson said Saturday at his football camp, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Nice thought, but we doubt that will fly with the zebras.
NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino confirmed in March that a rule already was in place against using the ball as a prop in celebrations. Penalizing dunks was an enforcement of that rule, as opposed to a new edict on the books.
While some celebrations, like the Lambeau Leap, have been grandfathered in, dunking -- in any form -- is on the outs.
