Last week I voiced my displeasure with the (over) reaction from fans, media and players to big guys (DeAndre Jordan, LeBron James) dunking over guards (Brandon Knight, Jason Terry).
If you are 6-10 inches taller and 50-80 pounds heavier than a man, you should be able to dunk on, over and through him.
Avery Bradley threw a hefty counter punch for all the guards when he drove the lane and crammed a dunk in the face of the 6-10 Ed Davis on Saturday night.
According to the ESPN scouting report, Davis is a “long, slim lefty who can leap. Excellent finisher, shot-blocker and rebounder.” Ouch.
I grabbed some popcorn and hit the web. Surely, I would find a plethora of memes, photoshops and poorly spliced videos announcing the death of Ed Davis.
There’s nothing out there.
Maybe it’s the apathetic call by the Grizzlies’ play-by-play guy.
Or could it be that Celtics fans are more cerebral than most and don’t get worked into a lather for two points, no matter how impressive?
One thing is for sure (courtesy commenter on YouTube page):
if it was lebron they would consider dunk of the century.
