Opponent Nearly Hits Head on Backboard While Dunking on the Sixers

Today’s friendly lunchtime GIF.

You know what’s great about rooting for a lousy team? Other teams make fantastic plays against you all the time. Like this one, courtesy of former NBA dunk champion and certified basketcase Gerald Green.



What’s especially nice about this GIF and the accompanying slow-mo video is the excruciating detail in which you can observe the complete lack of reaction by James Anderson (9) and the impressively non-existent help defense by Hollis Thompson (31) and Evan Turner (12).
