The New Jersey Nets may not have many things going their way this year, but they now have a legitimate candidate for dunk of the year. On Saturday night, Gerald Green was on the receiving end of an alley-oop from Marshon Brooks and threw down a windmill. It brought down the house in spectacular fashion.
