Kevin Martin Dunks On Greg Oden, Wins $1,000 Bet With Mikki Moore

But Did He Really Dunk On Greg Oden?

Because it's kind of a slow news day, unless you're into something called the "World Series" or a hockey rink littered with dildos (and I don't mean the New York Rangers), let's discuss the merits of a bet between the Sacramento Kings' Kevin Martin and Mikki Moore.

Ball Don't Lie shares that Martin and Moore bet each other that they would be the first to dunk on Greg Oden. On the line was $1,000. Martin cashed in on his bet Monday night by schooling Rudy Fernandez on the dribble drive and then dunking on Oden.

Martin also won a $1,000 bet with teammate Mikki Moore on who would be the first to dunk on Oden. "I had to go get my money," Martin said.

Asked if he knew Oden and Aldridge would be there when he crossed over Fernandez, Martin laughed. "Them guys have 7-(foot)-5 wingspans, so even if you don't think they are going to be there, they are going to be there," Martin said. "I'm glad they were there. I got a little richer today."

I approve any and all bets between NBA players of this ilk, but like BDL, I'm not sure I agree with this particular bounty being finished.

Did Kevin Martin dunk ON Greg Oden or did he dunk in the general vicinity of the Trail Blazers 43-year-old center who arrived late for the block? You decide.

I am definitely agree with the comment above, that this is a easy and quick way to earn some money. I was reading about this on sports betting blog and everybody has different opinion about this bet and if Martin really dunk on Greg Oden. From my point of view he didn't, but I can't say that the money was stolen from More either.

That was a dunk on Aldridge. Oden came in late and was behind him after the dunk. Martin basically just stole a grand from Moore.

No way did he dunk on Oden...its a nice way to earn a quick K though...Mikki hasn't been known to be one of the smartest guys in the league, but if he gives me a grand for somethin I didn't do; I'll go with it.

BTW, the hockey rink littered with dildos is utterly hilarious.

He definitely did not dunk on Oden.  However, he might have gotten as close to dunking on Oden as anyone will.
