Gerald Green Is Good At Dunks


The Dunk of the Year contest is over. Shut it down, kill the lights, everyone go home. Gerald Green is the winner.

Green, the former first-round draft pick and 2007 Slam Dunk Contest champion, had been out of the league since 2010 before signing a 10-day contract with the New Jersey Nets at the end of February. Since joining the team, he’s averaged about nine points and three rebounds a game, but none of that is important because on Saturday night Gerald Green caught an alley-oop and HOLY SH-T LOOK AT THAT PICTURE. His entire face is above the rim. Mother of God.

I’d like to conclude this post with a brief editorial note about dunking. Dunking is the best. If I were able to dunk like Gerald Green, I would never stop. Every time I touched a basketball, I would just put my head down and tear towards the basket with the misguided recklessness of a bird flying into a window. When I didn’t have the ball, I would constantly be doing that thing where I try to make eye contact with whoever has it and nod my head towards to the rim to indicate I want them to throw me an alley-oop. I wouldn’t develop any sort of fundamental skills like ball-handling or defense or a mid-range jump shot. Nope. All dunks. I would be a mostly useless player who brought nothing to the table except one ridiculous highlight every now and then surrounded on all sides by mediocre play and an inflated sense of self-importance.

Basically, I would be Gerald Green.
