Dunk of the Day

According to rob and Rhymo, this Josh Smith dunk is worth viewing, though the Zapruder-esque quality of the clip makes it difficult to see the first time around. The replay does it justice.

I'm not sure any dunk not by someone named Dawkins, Erving, Jordan or Webb was worth displacing Dennis's titillating post, though.

Go Rebs:

Andy Kennedy, basketball coach of the Rebels, was arrested last night in Cincinnati. The police report says Kennedy "punched a cab driver named Mohammed Ould Jiddou with a closed fist while shouting racial slurs."

Apparently somebody forgot he wasn't in Mississippi any more.

Honestly, if it weren't for the geographical impossibility, that state is an ideal candidate for an "Escape from New York"-type scenario.

Whitney, I'm offended that you chose not to include Dominique in your short list of all-time great dunkers. Nobody dunked with more ferocity than 'Nique.

TJ said...

Dee Brown is crying in the corner of the Arbys he currently works at.

Whitney said...

Sorry, Mark, that was a very rapid off the top of my head list. I was going to just mention Chocolate Thunder, then I remembered some of my favorite dude Dr. J's acrobatics, then felt like I had to include MJ, then remembered Spud's contest, then quit before it became a ridiculously long comment. Like this one.

Whit, at first I was offended by some of your omissions. But then I thought about it. Then I felt angry. Angry and tired. So I took a four hour angry-nap. When I woke up, I had forgotten what I was mad about. I like stories.

gerald wilkins was a much more stylish dunker than his over-achieving, point scoring brother. gerald liked to take off before he had considered his path to the basket, and then improvise in mid-air-- making for some fantastic (but not necessarily efficient) extemporaneous movement while he lingered in the stratosphere.

anyone else getting hebrew banner ads?

Marlin said...

That is due to TJ's part in the vast Zionist conspiracy.

TJ said...

The minute Marlin reappeared in the comments the right banner ad starts advertising "Solving Hair Loss". Google ads is even smarter than I thought.

Hello there,
I am Peter Robert Casey and I am a basketball columnist. I have initiated an idea to create a sports blogroll where bloggers from all sports disciplines could participate. All you need to do is to add my blog link to your blog and i'll do the same. That way, we could have a mutual partnership and we could refer visitors to each other's blog.
Please let me know if you would be interested.

Your's in Hoops,

Peter Robert Casey is gonna help me become rich and famous...or maybe just drunk and infamous.

Whitney said...

Mr. Casey, "mutual partnerships" should be sought out here.

Whitney said...

Also, please work the catastrophic apostrophic that closes your mass post.

Mark said...

There you go Whit. Piss off the guy who's going to make me a star.
