Air Gordon Hayward has always been one of those guys that you don’t think of as having hops but will surprise you with a poster dunk or LeBron like chasedown block. So after watching him posterize and yell and Joel Freeland last night, I figured out why.
My suggestion is for him to improve his post dunk celebrations and studying Shawn Kemp and this Rockets video is a great place to start. You get the classic Kemp scream, the finger pointing and the crotch grab.
Just take a look at this nice poster dunk and rim swing by Hayward against the Rockets.
Now watch the Reign Man. See the difference in style?
Let’s see if Gordon’s teammate Alec Burks did any better with his and-1 dunk.
