Maybe it’s because today is NFL Draft day, the greatest marketing hoax ever pulled on the sporting public — and eveyone would rather talk about a second-team All-Conference USA defensive tackle teams like the Dallas Cowboys could waste a first-round pick on.
Maybe it’s because Blake Griffin didn’t do it. Maybe it’s because the Thunder lost. But for whatever reason Kevin Durant’s two-handed throw-down in the face of Denver’s high-flying center JaVale McGee has inspired….. nothing.
Not even a shrug. Not even a Skip Bayless wise-crack.
For my money, it’s way more impressive than Blake Griffin’s non-dunk dunk over Kendrick Perkins. Question: How can it be a dunk when you he never got to the rim? Answer: Because we’ve left the slam out of slam dunk. (I’m blaming headline writers).
I’m not saying it’s the Dunk of the Year in the NBA. But I’m not saying it isn’t. Thoughts?
