In a game between the Miami Heat and Charlotte Bobcats, few expected Josh McRoberts to own the biggest highlight, but the former Duke star made his presence known with a huge dunk over Chris “Birdman” Andersen. To the surprise of many fans on Twitter who aren’t familiar with the Bobcats, McRoberts has been a starter virtually all season for Charlotte, and averages a solid 8.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game. As someone who watches these guys in HS/college and doesn’t watch much NBA, seeing Josh McRoberts as a playoff starter is earth-shattering. — Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) April 20, 2014 Appears that Heat players missed the McRoberts page of the scouting report. He makes that shot now. — Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick) April 20, 2014 Josh McRoberts is starting for a playoff team?!? — Rush the Court (@rushthecourt) April 20, 2014 The dunk of the playoffs so far goes to……..Josh McRoberts???? Birdman’s feathers got ruffled on that ferocious slam. Posterrrrrrrrrrr. — David Brown (@DaveBrown4) April 20, 2014 Lookin at Josh McRoberts,you wouldn’t even believe he went to Duke. — Hollywood Cole (@SayBroUSmellDat) April 20, 2014 [@OrlTankCommandr]
