cn2 went deep into the vault to find today’s throwback Thursday. In 2011, during the NBA lockout, former University of Louisville basketball star Earl Clark organized a charity exhibition game between some of his professional friends. The rosters included Derrick Caracter, J.R. Smith, Jerry Smith, former Card Terrence Williams, and the surprise guest of the evening was Dwight Howard.

The game was played in Bullitt East High School, and Earl Clark said he was excited to bring in Howard and others to play in Louisville.

Here are just a few highlights of the dunk fest that ensued.
