RG3 Throws Down Windmill Dunk Against Trent Richardson in H-O-R-S-E

Thanks to Gatorade, we can show you some more excerpts from NFL.com’s “Everything to Prove” series. This game of H-O-R-S-E between Robert Griffin III and Trent Richardson took place at API Phoenix when the two players were prepping for the Combine as part of a shoot for the Gatorade and NFL Films “Everything to Prove” online series. The first episodes of “Everything to Prove” are up and can be found at NFL.com/ETP.

Seeing RG3′s court skills beggedtwo questions from me. First, when will the long-awaited dunk contest between Brittany Griner and RG3 occur, and will there be cameras on that when it happens?

Secondly, what current NBA player is most comparable to RG3′s basketball game? To me, I see a combination of a retired player and a current player. RG3 has a little bit of Russell Westbrook to his game, but I also see a bit of Allen Iverson with his warrior spirit, toughness, and leadership ability.

That windmill dunk was pretty sick and RG3 showed some range too, but NFL fans everywhere are looking forward to this weekend when he will have his first NFL game against the New Orleans Saints.
