But that doesn’t mean everything is bad. Take Rodney Williams. On Friday night against the Maine Red Claws, the first-year 87ers small forward got ahead of the pack and threw down this incredible 360 dunk that looked more appropriate for NBA Jam than a real game.
The 87ers defeated the Red Claws on Friday, 147-142 (!). Williams scored 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting; the Sevens actually shot 60.8 percent in the win.
Williams isn’t actually on the 76ers, as D-League teams feature a mix of NBA players and non-affiliated ones. He was with the team in training camp and was waived on Oct. 27th. Hey, sign him to a 10-day contract and have him do a dunk show!
Anyway, here’s an animated GIF:
