Cody Zeller, Victor Oladipo dunk on rookies at Rookie Photo Shoot

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

One of the more popular memes on social media these days is dunking on unsuspecting people. It's been a craze across hallways in high schools around the country, requiring just a garbage can, a basketball, and someone that happens to innocently walk by. Indiana Hoosier teammates Victor Oladipo (now with the Orlando Magic) and Cody Zeller (now with the Charlotte Bobcats) are happy to bring this meme to the NBA Rookie Photo Shoot.

With Zeller holding the trash can hoop and Oladipo flying in for the poster, they managed to dunk on Shabazz Muhammad, Mason Plumlee, Steven Adams, and Trey Burke. Here's an example of the meme with one of the best executions in .gif form.

There have even been variations of this going on in what looks like a dorm room with a young studious lad looking for notes from a class, getting dunked on without a basketball being involved, and then people appearing out of nowhere to celebrate in spectacular fashion. Nate Robinson tweeted it out last night.
