Former Laker Ronny Turiaf, currently with the Minnesota Timberwolves, attempted to one-up Kobe Bryant by jumping over a monster truck -- sort of.
Turiaf does successfully jump over a truck outside of Staples Center -- except it's a small toy truck.
Bryant's commercial for Nike's Hyperdunk shoes was certainly more impressive, but the dangerous stunt never happened -- it was produced in a studio with special effects.
The show Sport Science attempted to re-create the actual stunt, also on YouTube:
Turiaf's feat, though less impressive in real life, is certainly more practical. As it is, Sports Science stuntman Damion Poitier needed a little help to get it done.
