James White didn't have the most memorable NBA career as he played a total of 10 games split between the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets after being selected with the first pick of the second round in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers.

James White has been memorable seemingly every time he enters a dunk contest, however.

Remember this performance in the 2001 McDonald's All-American Slam Dunk Contest when White was robbed as current Golden State Warriors power forward David Lee took top honors? Or the 2006 NCAA Dunk Contest when he was unable to complete a from-the-free-throw-line between-the-legs dunk to defeat David Noel in the finals? His array of dunks that allowed to win the dunk contest while playing in Turkey during the 2007-08 season? The dunk from outside the key over Will Conroy (pictured above) that helped him win the 2009 D-League Slam Dunk Contest? How about when he beat Gerald Green last season while the two were playing in Russia?

If you don't remember those, click the links to get acquainted. It's probably worth your time.

If you do, hit the jump to watch highlights of his most recent dunk contest victory that took place over the weekend while In Italy.

On the season, White is averaging 20.9 points and 5.0 rebounds for Dinamo Sassari. His teammates include former NBA players Travis Diener, Othello Hunter and former NBA Summer Leaguer Jiri Hubalek.
