Shane Battier has primarily been a jump-shooter throughout most of his career. His role with the Miami Heat has consisted of coming off the bench and trying to knock down a few big shots, which is something Battier was able to do last season en route to a championship. However, a dunker he is not. During a win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday night, Battier dunked in a regular season game for the first time in four years. The 34-year-old sprung free on a fast break, took a bounce pass from Dwyane Wade and slammed it home. The former Duke Blue Devil made it look easy, but that didn’t stop him from poking fun at himself after the game. “That one is for all the suburban Dads out there,” Battier said according to Ethan J. Skolnick of the Palm Beach Post. “I might release a DVD of that.” That might not be a bad idea if he wants to savor the moment. Considering he is entering the back end of his career and had not dunked since age 30 prior to Monday, that could very well be the last dunk we will see from Battier as an NBA player.
