There were plenty of amazing highlights to choose from for our nightly NBA post, but the best one didn’t actually happen in a game.
That’s because at Suns Team Practice today, Gerald Green put on a show in an impromptu dunk contest versus teammate Archie Goodwin. Archie himself had some nice flushes, but it still didn’t touch what Gerald did with his last 3 dunks above. Especially that last one, wow.
As for the games, Monta Ellis continues his hot scoring stream and burns his old team on a game-ending buzzer beater. This sounds cool, but is considerably less so because Monta took four steps to put up the shot. Somehow this wasn’t a travel, even in the NBA.
In Charlotte, the hometown Bulls may have got the win, 102-95, but Kemba Walker crossed up rookie Nikola Mirotic so bad that it’s the enduring image of the game. It pains me to post this, but I do love me some Kemba crossovers.
It was so bad, Mirotic had to own it on Twitter. Ha! At least Niko’s use of emojis are in veteran form.
Lastly, and fittingly for the post, John Wall closed out the win vs. the Lakers with a 4-point play on Kobe and a fantastic, trolling shimmy. I approve.
