NBA power forward Rasheed Wallace and point guard Chauncey Billups are beloved figures in Detroit. The two players were key members of the Detroit Pistons in the 2000s and helped the franchise win it’s third NBA Championship while also making another appearance in the NBA Finals. Billups is still playing for Detroit, while Wallace is now an assistant coach with the Pistons, and he’s doing his best to teach some of the young core of Detroit players how to play basketball in the NBA.

Tony Mitchell is a rookie from North Texas looking to make a name for himself in the NBA, and while he has yet to do that on the court, he’s getting some notoriety today for what Wallace did to try and teach the young rook in proper dunking technique.

The 6’11″ Wallace is 39 years old, and he tried to have some fun with the contest, but has clearly lost a step in his game:
