End of ‘Spiderman dunk’ as PBA deems ‘monkey ride’ unsportsmanlike


PBA fans may have just seen the last of Arwind Santos’ patented “Spiderman” dunk last season.

While the San Miguel Beer forward could still do it, he risks getting penalized after the PBA issued a memorandum deeming the “Spiderman” dunk or monkey ride as the league called it in the memo “unsportsmanlike.”

According to the memo, “a player who hangs onto the rim after a dunk and places either or both of his feet onto the backboard, shall be assessed with an unsportsmanlike technical foul.”

The memorandum also cleared that “a player may still hang on to the basket rim, backboard or its support, to prevent injury to himself or another player with no penalty.”

The league said a player is still allowed to “momentarily” hang on to the rim after a dunk.
