All eyes were on Sean Combs during the National Basketball Association's (Nba) All-Star weekend in Orlando, Florida on Saturday (25Feb12) when he was used as a prop in the famous Slam Dunk Contest.
The hip-hop mogul became a participant in the competition, in which players perform wacky stunts as part of their slam dunk, by partnering with Houston Rockets star Chase Budinger, who jumped over him to make the basket.
Combs started the skit by saying to Budinger, "White men can't jump," and the sportsman, who dressed as Woody Harrelson's character from 1992 basketball comedy movie of the same name, replied, "White man can jump. I'm about to prove it right now."
Budinger then leaped over Diddy's head and slammed the ball into the net, drawing cheers from the crowd at Orlando's Amway Center.
However, Budinger's big leap failed to win him the competition - Jeremy Evans of Utah Jazz walked away victorious.
Combs later told fans about his experience, writing in a post on Twitter.com, "White men can jump! Lol (laugh out loud)."
