Slamadaday: Micah Downs over Fran Vazquez

We hopped an ocean to unearth this goody.

We’re glad the NBA’s back…but that doesn’t mean we’ve taken our eyes off of the international game. Take this dunk for instance:

With his team (Assignia Manresa) down big late in a Spanish League game, former Gonzaga wing Micah Downs took his anger out on the rim. Unfortunately for FCB Regal’s Fran Vazquez, a former first-round pick of the Orlando Magic, he got in Downs’ way.

Despite the dunkworks, Regal hung on for a 74-61 victory.

  • Do Work

    why does it always have to be about race? “oh for a white guy he can jump/dunk” why can’t it just be “sick dunk for a basketball player”?


    ^^^^^ Have you seen that movie with Woody Harleson & Wesley Snipes by any chance ?

  • http://www.t-mac.com/tmac/index unf*ckwitable

    Damn dude can hang never seen a white guy do that in games.

  • Do Work

    so it wouldn’t be a big deal if people started saying “for a black guy he can shoot” since generally white players have historically been better shooters?

    @smills larry bird, rick barry, pete maravich, john stockton, chris mullin to name a few. the point i’m trying to make is that i don’t see what race has to do with one’s abilities.


    You ever heard that Da LenchMob track. F*ck you & your heroes !!! ! ! off their first album ? ?? ? ‘Don’t talk about Bird & all of that scorin’ $#it , coz i got Magic , Ewing , Jordan , Olajuwon , Isaha & Barkley , NOW B*CH DON’T START ME !!” :-) DJ phukin wit da beat ! Peace

  • tomtom

    Jeez @do work why so serious…most of the best sports people in the world are black, for whatever reason, but don’t worry about it man white people will ALWAYS have bowling and darts…unless the Chinese start bowling or playing darts.

  • Kev

    No wonder he doesn’t want to come to the US and play, he was drafted by the Magic but still be getting dunked on by Spaniards, at least if you get dunked on by Kobe or Lebron, it wouldn’t be surprising but he just got posterized.


    LOL @ tomtom : don’t forget curling

  • theunsunghero

    DANG!!! Too bad he was poking out like that at KU or Gonzaga…Downs straight posterizing cats these days. That’s what’s up. WASHINGTON STAND UP!!!

    I don’t really have a problem with the race comment, but saying “well blacks are the majority” is a dicey comment. Imagine someone pointing out a black CEO and saying “And he’s BLACK too! Crazy, right???”

  • http://www.optimabbc.be Max

    Kev, He probably more scared of going against Dwight in practice..

  • marc

    Really at the comments are kind of racist. Chill out its about basketball not about what race is better in the sport.

  • http://Slamonline.com Mars

    Race, Color, it’s all an illusion man. We all human, creation, I and I. We all different and the same. Truth. Me naw care if you yellow, blue, green, WE ALL pickney you AND ME be, for all the glory you brethen of I and I. How can one act black or white, or talk black or white? Think about it. We are limiting ourselves. Evolve, and get over the obvious. Dude did have bounce for a white boy though.

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dfrance dfrance21

    Lmao @ Mars with his “we are the world” post ending in “Dude had bounce for a white boy.” That first dunk looked awesome… especially for a white boy.

    who cares about races?? there are things black people don’t do better than white, like swimming, so what??smh…
    great dunks and great posterization, Fran Vazquez has always been up to it

  • havingfun

    ^Swimming is about exposure to water, has nothing to do with race. If you’re just limiting your comment on American black people. Look south of the boarder to the islands and in South America. It’s the culture not the race.


    My bad guys. but has anyone seen the movie ‘Fear of a Black Hat’ ? one of my faves right there. Peep it & weep (from laughter)

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    @ Jukai: You do have a point there… Except sports, like business (and every other institution of American society) never discriminated against white people or disadvantaged them in competing against black people. Black people on the other hand… Well, we know that they were barred from competing with whites until the latter half of the 20th Century, sports leagues included. So not nearly the same thing.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    All the “ZOMG White men can jump!” comments are still pretty stupid, though.
