For those capable of doing it well, dunking is the safest, easiest possible way to score two points in the game of basketball — a sure thing, basically. However, some dunkers are more successful than others. Derrick Williams, for instance, seems to miss about as many dunks as he makes. Why? Well, I suppose it probably says something about the nature of the dunks that he attempts. While the majority of most players’ dunk attempts are some degree of basic, Williams tends to push his personal limitations. Being that his personal limitations are only those of an otherworldly-athletic, six-foot-eight-inch NBA basketball player, the pushing of these limitations can yield the spectacular. So, while Williams may never be one of the world’s most efficient dunkers, he can be one of the most incredible. Exhibit A:
Welcome back, DeJuan Blair! (To be fair, Blair did go 4-5 for 9 points and 4 boards in an easy Spurs victory).
