True. I don't watch soccer but dude should be a household name based on his off the field awesomeness.

god amongst men

Balotelli has been given a reputation by the media for being a difficult character and taking part in questionable and often amusing activities. He was once described by Jose Mourinho as "unmanageable."[130] In June 2010, Balotelli and a group of friends fired air pistols in the open in Milan’s Piazza della Repubblica.[131] Although denying that he is "crazy" as his mentor Roberto Mancini frequently claims, Balotelli has admitted that he "sometimes does strange things".[132] In 2010, he was photographed in the company of two noted Mafia mobsters.[133] Since joining Manchester City, he has a gained a cult following,[134] particularly with Manchester City supporters regularly sing a song with lyrics which make reference to his activities.[135] Musician Tinchy Stryder recorded a song in Balotelli's honour, Mario Balotelli (song).[136]
Balotelli has been the subject of numerous newspaper stories since joining Manchester City, some have been confirmed as true while others have turned out to be erroneous. Within days of joining Manchester City, Balotelli was involved in a car crash.[137] It was reported that Balotelli was carrying £5,000 cash at the time – and that when a police officer asked why he had such a large sum of cash Balotelli replied: "Because I am rich".[138] Off-field activities involving Balotelli have included driving into a women's prison in Italy to "have a look round",[139] and throwing darts at a youth team player during a training ground 'prank'[140] – all of which have been confirmed to be true. Balotelli has also been subjected to tabloid rumours about him confronting a bully in a school after querying why a young Manchester City fan wasn't attending classes,[141] and giving £1,000 to a homeless man on the streets of Manchester,[142] – allegations which subsequently turned out to be false.[143][144] Since arriving in Manchester City, Balotelli has been involved in multiple instances of training ground disputes, clashing with team-mates Jérôme Boateng, Vincent Kompany, Aleksandar Kolarov, Micah Richards and manager Mancini.[145][146]
"I've finished my words for him. I've finished. I love him as a guy, as a player. I know him. He's not a bad guy and [he] is a fantastic player. But, at this moment, I'm very sorry for him because he continues to lose his talent, his quality. I hope, for him, he can understand that he's in a bad way for his future. And he can change his behaviour in the future. But I'm finished."
Mancini in April 2012 following Balotelli's dismissal against Arsenal[80]
Video footage before City's Europa League clash with Dynamo Kiev in March 2011 showed Balotelli requiring assistance to put on a training bib,[147] an incident which teammate Edin Džeko was seen mimicking the following week in the warm up before City's game at Chelsea.[148] In September 2011, Balotelli was reportedly seen using his iPad whilst on the substitutes' bench for Italy during their game with the Faroe Islands,[149] although he denied this on a visit to a prison later that week.[150] In addition, Balotelli turned the garden of his Manchester home into a racetrack for quadbikes.[151]


A signed Mario Balotelli replica shirt with his famous slogan: "Why always me?".
He also celebrated his goal against Manchester United in October 2011 by unveiling a shirt with the words: "Why always me?" on it – a celebration which seemingly disputes the accuracy of newspaper reports.[152] The day before the match, Balotelli and his friends set Balotelli's house on fire when a firework was let off in it, and later that week Balotelli was unveiled as Greater Manchester's ambassador for firework safety.[153][154] On 5 November 2011, at the annual fireworks display at Edenbridge, Kent, a 12 metre tall bonfire effigy of Balotelli was unveiled – complete with a Super Mario hat, and a house in the right hand and a 'Giant TNT' firework in his left, which were reference to his recent incident.[155][156] In December 2011, Balotelli broke a 48-hour curfew before City's game against Chelsea to go to a curry house, although he "was not drinking alcohol, signed autographs, posed for pictures with fellow diners and was involved in a mock sword-fight using rolling pins". The club launched an internal investigation.[157]
In July 2012, Balotelli's former on-and-off girlfriend and showgirl Raffaella Fico claimed that she was pregnant with his child.[158] Fico's daughter Pia was born on 5 December 2012. Fico accused Balotelli of being 'irresponsible' and 'not interested' in his newborn baby daughter.[159] In a statement on 27 December 2012, Balotelli said: “I can no longer tolerate that my honour as a man is offended and I am falsely accused of serious ­misbehaviour, which has no element of truth. “I caution Raffaella Fico that she will pay damages for any further irresponsible comments that she makes.”[160] Balotelli issued a statement that he has no intention of shirking his paternal responsibilities if she has proof he is the father.[161] On 29 March 2013, Balotelli stated that he has not yet received the paternity test from Fico that he requested.[162]
Balotelli made an unexpected appearance at Andrea Stramaccioni's first press conference as Inter Milan coach on March 2012. Balotelli nonchalantly entered the press room, before proceeding to the interviewee podium to shake Stramaccioni's hand and those of other people at the podium before leaving the press conference amidst some laughter from the audience.[163]
On 17 December 2012, it was announced Balotelli had taken Manchester City to a Premier League tribunal to protest a fine of two weeks' wages.[164]

74" (6'2)
32" Armpit to fingertips(Assumed relevant for his height)
___
106"

He'd need a running vertical of a whopping 15-16" (I have a better single leg standing vert)

Real strong genetics

Your armpit isn't at the top of your head brah. That doesn't take into consideration the fact that just getting to 10' isn't going to dunk a ball. You gotta get about a half a foot over to throw it down like he is. So more like 34+"...

Rofl do you even math bro?

Let's assume Balotelli is 6'2 and has a pretty long wingspan of 6'8 like Westbrook

http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Russell-Westbrook-5062/

That would give him a standing reach of about 8'4, so he would need at least like a 25-26" vert to actually dunk the ball (you need to get the ball like half a foot over the rim).

Bunch of blind phaggots ITT.

The ball doesn't go in, he throws it off the left side of the backboard and his hand/vibration of the rim makes the net look like it goes in. Not doubting he can dunk, he just lost control of it.
