POTD 2/23/12: Dwight Howard on Zaza Pachulia

Dwight Howard’s final poster with the Orlando Magic?!  Nah, just kidding, you know I’m not about that nonsense.  So anyway, this dunk was pretty dirty.  Zaza Pachulia opted to shove rather than to jump, which is unfortunate, because Dwight was dropping that hammer either way.  Pachulia also snagged the basketball before it could reach its apex after bouncing back up off the floor, which makes it harder to judge the slam’s power… but still, this dunk was right up my alley.  Straight up, and straight down… very high, and very strong…

I’m not usually one to get all excited about a Dwight Howard dunk–there’s just something about his usual style that fails to do it for me–but this dunk damn near got me up out of my seat, and I didn’t even see it live.

Dunk rating on the Starbury Nastiness Scale:

8.5/10 Starbury Nasty Faces
