OK, so maybe the still shot of this solid Rudy Gay dunk from Friday night isn’t that embarrassing — it’s just a guard getting dunked on by a bigger guy, which is certainly understandable. But if we zoom in, things get worse for poor Manu.
Between the derp face, the hand on the crotch and the deeply bent knees, this is a great under-the-radar getting dunked on moment. Still not as good as the OG, but still a worthy inductee for this hallowed Hall of Fame. He will be presented at the Hall by one of his heroes, Vlade Divac.
Coaches always tell you not to foul a jump shooter, and that’s something Lou Williams took to heart. Like REALLY took it to heart, to the point where he ends up Kyle Korvering a Keyon Dooling jumper, only with a grossed-out look on his face rather than Korver’s creepy grin.
Guess he never heard that “Get a hand up” advice. Oh well.
Kyle Korver’s legendary photo will always be the industry thought leader of bad defense pictures, but this is still pretty good. I’d put it up there with Chris Bosh helping Rajon Rondo dunk on him and the second Korver photo as far as the pantheon goes, but we all have our opinions.
Of course, when you consider this photo was taken on the same night Drew horribly airballed two wide-open jumpers, that might help it climb up the rankings. But that’s all dependent on how you feel about cross-pollinating offense and defense when ranking things. Your call on that one.
