POTD 1/14/13: Taj Gibson on Anthony Tolliver

There’s a laundry list of things I like about the dunk that Kevin Durant sent home over the top of Marcin Gortat last night.  First of all, I like that Gortat is seven feet tall, 240 pounds.  That’s a big damn Pole to be smashing on with such authority.  In addition, I like that Durant took off from the dotted line, that he drew enough body contact to warrant a whistle, and...
