Video: JaVale McGee Assaults the Rim

If you checked SLAMonline over the weekend—and you best have (!)—you know that Al Thornton threw down a beast of a slam against Atlanta on Saturday night. Well, this dunk by Javale McGee from that same game may be even better:

    Great dunk.
    Normally I am a fan of the understated post-dunk celebration, but McGee looks like his mind is on something else completely. Superbowl, maybe?

    EVERYONE… who has the most ATHLETIC team in the league????

    wow, 3 comments without anyone saying its not a dunk because he didn’t touch the rim :)
    When will they come?
    Also @ AllDay, I say Thunder because they can start 5 players who are really atlethic.

    this wasn’t a proper dunk. There you go. And even if it had been, Al Thornton’s was way better. JaVale is a great athlete but I don’t like his style. It’s kinda boring.

    “this is not a dunk”

    haters wish they can lay it up like that

  • henry

    dont see the significance of this dunk

  • 2KInsider

    I thought Black Rick clearly made notice of the non-dunk with his “rim grazer” term.

  • onions baby onions

    no chance is this better than Thornton’s

    ^ what are you talking about? This lay-up is definitely better than Al Thornton’s non lay-up.

  • theDankerNuggets

    Definitley not as dope looking as Thornton’s but the fact he totally punked J-Smooth gives his the nod

  • lexluther703

    He makes the ugliest faces after he makes a good play.. zero dunk swag whatsoever

  • wilz

    I dont come to SLAM on weekends cuz im tired of being disappointed theres nothing posted

  • wilz

    i guess i do tho..cuz i did see Al Thorton do his thing like it was his sophmore year

  • c.a.

    any dunk that doesn’t touch the rim should be called a ‘drunk’.
    As in ‘you must be drunk to think that was a slam’.
