Oregon Zoo sea otter takes up basketball, is dunking machine (Video)

It's not often that we get to feature a dunking sea otter here on Outside the Boxscore but the below video features an Oregon Zoo otter that could dunk a basketball better than some NBA players.

A sixteen-year old rescued sea otter that goes by the name of Eddie was having arthritis problems in his elbows and his trainers were trying to find a way for him to exercise that would help him live longer.

That's when they decided to place a mini-basketball hoop in one of the tanks of water and Eddie started to show signs of his scoring ability:

Sadly, the Portland Trail Blazers can't sign him to a ten-day contract.
