I described Roderick Flemings’ tremendous dunk last night as a windmill slam. Actually, he caught the ball high behind his head and threw it down. So, in the Official Lexicon of Dunkology, it should be termed a tomahawk. Thank you to Brian McInnis for the clarification. (BMac saw the replay, I didn’t.)
At any rate, it was spectacular. He was so far from the basket when he caught the ball, no one expected him to throw it down. But he did. It was stunning. Bobby Curran said it’s one of the best he’s seen in about 50 years of playing and broadcasting basketball. I can’t remember seeing a more brilliant dunk during a game in about 40 years of following the game, going back to Dr. J’s peak.
Any good dunk stories out there?
