Gerald Wallace Is Not Only Still In the League But He’s Still Dunking On People
I still remember about 15 years ago picking up an issue of Slam magazine and reading about this high school kid who was a “future slam dunk champion” named Gerald Wallace. I also remember around that time the awesome website HoopsTV showing a tiny pixelated video of Wallace dunking all over his local competition in Alabama.
Wallace never did win a dunk contest but he was 2nd to Jason Richardson in 2002 (and embarassed himself in the 2010 contest) and has thrown down some pretty memorable dunks during his long career – remember Boston Nachbar?
Boston Nachbar has been long forgotten and unfortunately to many NBA fans today, so has current Boston Celtic Gerald Wallace. Wallace came to Boston during the blockbuster trades of 2013 and missed most of last season after he tore his meniscus. BUT the one time All-Star made his return this season and has been playing (every other game or so) and sometimes scoring and last night he scored twice including once over the head of Marvin Williams.
That brought back some good memories.
So let’s reminisce and check out some of those memories of a young high flying Gerald Wallace.
