To dunk on Earl Watson… it doesn’t seem very impressive.  However, this slam happens to serve as a prime example of why you should never judge a book by its cover, or a dunk by its description.  You’ve got to see this one for yourself, or else you’d probably figure Tyreke just plopped it in the bucket over a five-foot-something point guard.  That’s not how it went down, though.  Not at all…

As you can see, what ‘Reke actually did was take off from the dotted line, strike the pose of a famous statue, and send it down with authority.  Anything but your run-of-the-mill slam dunk.

I wish I had a chance to post Friday’s poster, because it was pretty awesome.  I chose Hakim Warrick’s one-handed facialization of Chris Johnson over LeBron’s power smash.  It was worth 8 faces and came with an awesome photo.
