As good as this dunk was, a video of Ian Mahinmi dunking on Clint Capela will end up with as many views as a video of 37 year old Kobe Bryant doing a wide-open 1-hand dunk on a 9 foot goal in an empty gym.
Mahinmi also put up some decent numbers in the OT loss for the Pacers: 13 points and 7 rebounds in 29 minutes. Capela only had 2 points but was a beast on the defensive end with 6 boards, 3 steals and 2 blocks in 20 minutes – he just didn’t have much luck on this play…which nobody really gives a damn about.
But when 37 year old Kobe Bryant dunked on Capela last month, it was the play of the night.
