My name is Haneef Munir but most know me as Young Hollywood. I started playing basketball at the age of five and I have been in love with the game ever since. My freshmen year of high school is when I realized my potential in this game. My coaches were amazed that I could DUNK and from then on I was determined to become the best at it. By my senior year I had become known as one of the best athletes in my class and I even won a local dunk contest. During my senior year of High School I entered the Clippers 3on3 Tournament where I participated in the slam dunk contest. The level of competition was extremely high but, even though I was the youngest participant I excelled above the others.
I was selected to dunk during Halftime game of the Clippers vs. the Spurs where I won 1st place. I continued to excel in it all the way through college where I now have a career in doing ads and commercials for some of the most prestigious brands in the world. My first commercial I was blessed to work with the greatest Athlete of all time His Air-ness Michael Jordan. I was chosen to recreate one of his greatest moves in the Jordan XXI commercial, the infamous layup on the Lakers. Since then I have worked with some of the top brands in the world which include Nike, AT&T, Citi-Bank, McDonalds, State Farm, and Sprite. Dunking has taken me all over the world to places I could have only dreamed of being: from Las Vegas, Miami to London, Paris and all the way to Russia.
But one of my best memories is when I won the 2011 NBA Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown and I was honored to present Blake Griffin with his slam dunk trophy during 2011 All-Star Weekend.
It is because of my many blessings and opportunities that I was able to start West Coast Dreamers, a company dedicated to give back to my community and also reach out to the youth. One of my main goals is to be a positive role model that kids can actually see, touch and relate to.
I will always continue to do my best, improve myself and create new things that I have never been seen before.
