Your Morning Dump… Where Paul George threw down one of the sickest dunks ever

John - Red's Army (@RedsArmy_John) August 27, 2012 Around the NBA, The Morning Dump, Videos 7 Comments

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

This comes to us via Pro Basketball Talk, and in case you couldn’t tell there… that’s a 360, between-the-legs dunk.  That’s definitely going to help Nike sell some shoes in China, which is where this ridiculous dunk was performed.

Yep, we’re witnessing a growing trend in the NBA.  Players are spending the doldrums of the NBA offseason showing offholding clinics, and just marketing (their personal brands, and the companies they represent)

Rondo’s gone from Taiwan to the Philippines (which, incidentally, is where our largest non-U.S. audience is from.  Magandang umaga!), other Nike guys are in China, Kevin Garnett, who you know wears China’s Anta brand, always makes a trip to China as well.

Because these guys are super rich, they can pay whatever trainers they want to pay to go with them.  Because basketball is one of the world’s most popular sports, it’s not difficult to find a place to work out.  And because these guys have a chance to win over lifetime fans who could make them next-level popular, going on these trips is a no-brainer.

And it gives us something to write and talk about… or at least in this case, something cool to look at.  Because that’s one crazy dunk.

    LeBron jumping off the bench with his “not dream team” remake shirt, straight brimmed USA hat, and Steve Urkel glasses trying to steal the spot light from poor Paul George. This should be a reminder to all of the Kobe haters that there is a new idiot/jerk off in town.

    *knock on wood* but I can’t recall Pierce and LeBron hanging out this off season. Which makes me VEERRRRRYYY happy.

    I know that’s an extremely athletic, difficult dunk; but, he looked like he could have made it more impressive. I’m guessing he doesn’t want to risk injury.
