not a highlight dunk by any stretch

fwd to the 12:02 mark (I tried to timestamp the link, but it won't work)



He slashes past Byron Scott, and hops onto two feet off of the dribble. Pause the video when he lands and look at his feet and body position: it does not look like someone about to get off the ground for a dunk, not with how barely his knees are bent, especially that far away from the rim. He doesn't put his heels down for the jump, and landing like that actually takes power away from the jump. I can't remember any other time someone did layup/dunk off of this hop. Not only does he get to the rim, he jumps way higher than was necessary for the dunk, which is gorgeous.

It looked like a Jason Richardson dunk off of two feet.
