Lakers' Dwight Howard is perhaps the most dominant defensive center in the NBA. This season he is averaging 2.6 blocks, and is pretty much an intimidating force in the paint for any would-be opponent daring enough to go the the rim for the basket.
But last night, Bobcats' Gerald Henderson scoffed at Howard's reputation and proceeded to annihilate Howard in the fourth quarter.
While players were scrambling for a loose ball, Henderson got the pass from his teammate while cutting to the basket when he caught Howard with his back turned and dropped a vicious dunk on him.
It is so spectacular, even the Lakers' bench can't contain their appreciation for the dunk. Check it out.
