Andrew Bynum is lucky to have ducked the brunt of this blow, because it would’ve been a rather devastating one. Rudy Gay had his hammer cocked and ready, and Bynum recognized at the last possible moment. Well, almost… he didn’t quite escape from the frame in time to dodge a Poster of the Day (Rudy’s third this season, good enough to tie him up for first place!).
Too bad Bynum realized there was no hope… I think this dunk had nine, maybe even ten-level potential. Take a look at the power with which it was thrown down. I mean… damn! Honorable mention to Manu Ginobili, who spun Spencer Hawes in a circle before flying by for the left-handed jam (mute if you dislike San Antonio’s commentators as much as I do).
Dunk rating on the Starbury Nastiness Scale:
