The term “baptized” applies to more than just the washing away of one’s sins, at least in the sports world of the 21st century. Basketball has taken a page out of Christianity’s playbook and applied the term to those who fail miserably at dunking a basketball and fall backward, much like a person does when getting submerged in the watery grave of Christian baptism.
The best part is most of these dunk failures didn’t happen on official basketball courts, which makes them even more outrageous and painful…for the victims involved. But then again, why would you try to do a backflip and dunk a basketball? Oops — we’ve said too much. Please enjoy the dunk fails video compilation above.
