Slamadaday: Al Thornton on Solomon Jones

A lot of T.M.V. here.

Al Thornton gave the Clippers/Hawks game a lot more T.M.V. than it should have. It isn’t easy to accrue, but the great thing about T.M.V. it is you don’t have to be on a winning team to get some. As a matter of fact, the Thunder are far above the Jazz in this category, who they beat last night. It can also add up for players, and some of the T.M.V. leaders play in struggling NBA cities such as Memphis, New York, Chicago and Charlotte. Sure, the best games will always get a fair amount of it, whether it’s deserved or not, but the beauty is T.M.V. can come from anywhere, any time.

So what’s this T.M.V. stand for? You probably guessed it. Text Message Value. This is how we measure hype today.

    the jason terry one is slightly better than that one…..i mean it was completely on a legit 7 footer and i don’t believe terry is over 6 ft

    i agree blackice87. JET took off like a shuttle and boomed it two handed. Great dunk.

    Watching it happen, I was proud to have worn my clippers shorts to play some pick-up ball earlier in the evening.

    After watching the slo-mo replay, he doesn’t really dunk as it slips out of his hand and into the basket. It could have also been called an offensive foul.

  • Crismo

    he did dunk it, his hand slams on the rim.

  • Gambit

    something like Dwright’s Superman dunk!

  • dfrance83

    He did dunk it, and it wasn’t an offensive foul. The Jets banger was better though. How do you start dunking on 7 footers in like your 10th yr?

  • sadasdas

    not an offensive foul at all. look on youtube al thornton does the vince carter dunk over a 7 footer in college (not as good as vince though)
