With the exception of Gerald Green’s “Dunk of the Week”, an unbelievable slam dunk contest style beauty that we may never see in a game ever again, there was a distinct theme to this week’s top jams.
Seriously, Commissioner Adam Silver must have sent out a memo at the start of the month requesting that more NBA players dunk over unsuspecting defenders.
In particular I like the Hornets’ Cody Zeller’s two-handed monster over Pau Gasol. Pau’s 7 feet tall but Zeller made him look like an oompa loompa.
The Suns’ Gerald Green is averaging 14.5 PPG this season, a full 4.4 points better than his career average, but nobody wants to talk about his rise from role player to star in the making – we just want to know if he’ll be entering the slam dunk contest come All-Star Weekend.
