60-Year-Old Warriors Assistant Alvin Gentry Can Still (Sort Of) Dunk

On the verge of the franchise’s first championship in 40 years, might the Golden State Warriors be a bit anxious? Perhaps. But Steve Kerr and his staff are ensuring their team stays loose with the usual practice hijinks that has it one win away from a title.

Yup, that’s Warriors assistant Alvin Gentry throwing down a dunk during Monday’s practice in Cleveland. Who cares if he had a bit of help? The future New Orleans Pelicans head coach is 60, after all, and still showed off some impressive athleticism here.

More important is that Golden State’s maintaining its fun-loving vibe despite the monumental stakes at hand. Let’s see if it translates to the court for Tuesday’s Game 6.
