Every year, there are a ton of great new products at the International CES. This year was no exception. From the ZTE, to LG, to Parrot booths, it seems like everywhere we went, there was something mind-blowing. This is great, and is the whole reason for CES.

It is important to take mental breaks throughout the show, so as not to completely burn out. As such, we always try to make it a point to check out the shows that companies sometimes put on at their booths.

Hall of Famers Clyde Drexler – Phi Slama Jama and Portland Trail Blazers fame – and Calvin Murphy – who holds the distinction of being the shortest player in the NBA Hall of Fame – made appearances, along with long-time Golden State Warriors big man Adonal Foyle. That’s not all. The ZTE booth also held daily trampoline dunk shows. We just so happened to capture one of these shows on video:
