NBA 24/7 365:
Did you know Jeremy Lin has a dunk mix on Youtube? Neither did I. With a duration of a minute and 25 seconds, I’d say it’s surprisingly long… but it goes all the way back to his collegiate career and is mostly composed of clips from summer league games and layup lines. Only one actual NBA dunk is included — the one he threw down against the Wizards during the height of Linsanity — and none of the jams are at all contested.
What I’m getting at here is that Jeremy Lin almost never dunks, and when he does he’s usually clear of any defender. So when he blocked a shot by Aaron Brooks, took the ball coast to coast, and threw one down over Francisco Garcia last night… it was like the mother of all sneaky dunks.
Upon seeing this for the first time, I immediately began to consider some of the other great sneaky dunks of recent years. The first jam that came to mind was this one by Sasha Vujacic. Coincidentally, as you may have noticed, it was also over Francisco Garcia.
Dunked on by Sasha Vujacic and Jeremy Lin? Damn, ‘Cisco. Damn.

There, they encountered not only the Kings, but 16,193 energetic fans who’d come out as part of a special initiative to show support for the struggling team. It was essentially a protest against the proposed sale of the...
