NBA Feet: Around The League – 1/30 – 1/31
People stop it already with Blake's so-called dunk. Using the dictionary to define the term... Really? That means a downward hook shot is a dunk. When you have to go to the dictionary that's when you know you already lost the argument. Jordan and Brady great players, no debating that. Tim tebow great player? Debate. Blake's dunk? Debate. There's reasons why people are debating his dunk as the best of all time. ESPN loves sparking up attention on unworthy issues. This dunk is better than Vince Carters olympic dunk over another player...
It was a dunk, not the best of all time, but a dunk nonetheless. His hand hit rim. It was more of a "flush" type of dunk, not a "smash" type of dunk that includes a rim hang. You have to also note that the only reason he couldn't "smash" it was because he was fouled on the play. Perkins jumped into Blake and when they met in mid-air, Blake was pushed away from the rim, resulting in him just getting a touch of the rim rather than a handful of it.
Slam dunk... Sorry needs to be a rim shaker in my opinion to get any attention paid to it, hence the term slam dunk. Because he was fouled is why he didn't make the play spectacular? That's the whole reason why people paid attention to the bucket because of the foul by Perkins. If he really slammed it on him. Not blakes best dunk
the contact is why he couldn't get a good hold of the rim bro, its simple physics, ever heard of "inertia", if Perkins doesn't make contact, then you would get the "rim hanger" you want, but that wasn't the case, Perkins contact in the air interrupted Blakes momentum toward the basket, resulting in the "flush" he pulled off.
