Richaun Holmes is extremely bouncy. He’s also 6’10 and blessed with a 7’2 wingspan. But even those rare physical attributes of the Philadelphia 76ers rookie still don’t quite explain how he managed to scrape the ceiling while posterizing Atlanta Hawks star Al Horford.
You know what would? If we found out that Holmes had the help of a trampoline.
Another possible explanation: the Bowling Green product used momentum gleaned from meeting bodies with Horford in mid-air to rise even higher than he already was. But that reasoning doesn’t quite do Holmes’ dunk justice; we’ll stick with the invisible trampoline theory.
