"I think that's a good nickname, especially in this uniform,' Deputy Gransberg said. "I've been called a lot of things that I couldn't say on the news, so if people want to call me 'Deputy Dunk,' I think that's wonderful."

With heavy boots, a 10-lb. duty belt and body armor, most people probably couldn't pull off his slick flips -- heck, they probably couldn't even comfortably walk!

We bet he can dance pretty well -- and that's just what he'd love to do. The only thing he wants from his new-found fame is to hopefully get Ellen DeGeneres' attention.
