Those of us who don't follow sports, Ex, aren't up on the slang terms. I read "drunk" too.

I didn't read drunk. Being that there are people from other countries here I thought a "savage dunk" could be slang for something and a 16 year old threw one down that came into a church function


I don't click on threads or blind links for no reason and certainly don't waste my data on videos that have no interest to me. So clear titles help a lot for people from other countries and such

I thought the title was pretty clear and to the point.

"Dunk" has been in the vernacular for 30+ years.

Here is one. Church shoes, tie, white shirt and long pants.

Do me, dunk refers to basketball, but "savage" didn't make sense in the context of dunking a basketball. I didn't watch the video, did he elbow someone causing injury making the dunk a savage play?

Google "savage dunk": About 492,000 results

I think it's fairly well established in the 'Murican vernacular.
