Court awareness. Every good player must have good court awareness. Especially when a player is attempting a blindfolded dunk. Justin Melton was the reigning Dunk Contest champion in the Philippine Basketball Association and was interested in one-upping his performance last season with something epic.
Except that something epic turned into some pathetically embarrassing.
Funniest dunk contest attempt ever? Purefoods' Justin Melton is blindfolded, jumps 3 feet off ground & spikes ball pic.twitter.com/k7pFaRujcg

The failed attempt indicates that Melton has either never attempted such a move or has no clue many steps it takes to reach the rim because his court awareness is mind-boggling. Did Melton really think he could reach the rim in a few steps from 25 feet out?
