Looks like dunking on Yao Ming was something that someone was willing to pay a lot of money to see happen. 

He’s 7’6, so clearly not an easy feat. 

“People didn’t know, we had a bounty out on Yao Ming,” said Garnett in an interview with Yahoo! Sports

“The whole USA team had a bet. We had a million dollar bet on who was going to be the first person to dunk on Yao Ming. None of us did. We all tried to dunk on Yao, but he would block it or we would miss.”

No one managed to even come close, although Vince Carter had one of the best dunks anyone has ever seen. 

“The first thing I thought of when I saw Vince dunk over Frederic was oh s–t, you won the million dollars!” said Garnett.

“But then I realized it obviously wasn’t Yao. I pushed Vince, and if you look at the clip, he almost punches me in the face by accident. But my first thought was, oh s–t, you won, you got the million.”

I think if anyone did manage to dunk on Yao, there’s no chance that bounty would have been paid.
