POTD 12/21/12: Gerald Green on Samardo Samuels

I didn’t think there was any way Gerald Green was going to dunk this basketball.  First of all, when he crossed over on Samardo Samuels out near the three-point line, I kind of figured he’d dribble off his foot.  As much as I love Gerald, his ball-handling skills are yet to graduate high school.  When the crossover actually worked and he progressed into the paint, I still didn’t think he was going to be able to throw it down.  I thought he’d try, but he appeared to have been swallowed up by the Cavalier defense.  Between Samuels and Tristan Thompson, two big, athletic dudes, Green actually disappeared completely for a moment.  At that point I assumed he’d be fouled, stripped, or stuffed.  Then, suddenly, as if he’d been shot out of a cannon, Gerald Green exploded from the scrum beneath the rim.  The rest is self explanatory…

Never will I doubt you again, Gerald.  Trust me.

Honorable mentions to Larry Sanders, Mo Speights, and Terrence Ross.
