Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Indiana Pacers All-Star Victor Oladipo had no regard for Tekashi69 during a recent dunk attempt, sending the rapper to floor during an aerial collision.

Oladipo tried the dunk on Thursday in Miami. He posted a clip of the attempt on Instagram.

"What y'all got? Foul or charge? Lol," Oladipo wrote in the caption.

The 6-foot-4 guard took a few dribbles outside of the 3-point line before the attempt as Tekashi69 stood in the restricted area under the rim. Oladipo eventually picked up his dribble before bouncing the ball in the paint once and taking flight. He elevated over the much smaller defender before using his left hand to hammer the ball down toward the rim.

The ball bounced off of the back iron and ricocheted high into the air for a miss. The rapper fell face first onto the court after the run in. Oladipo's video had nearly 200,000 views and more than 40,000 likes as of Friday morning. It also included comments from NBA players Stanley Johnson, James Blackmon Jr. Glenn Robinson III and Edmund Sumner.
