It wasn’t a glow in the dark dunk (that we couldn’t see) but slam dunk contestant Paul George wanted to show off his ridiculous hops after the whistle in tonight’s game by throwing down a 360 windmill. Real quick. Who won the dunk contest this year…………………………………..1 second left……………………………I knew you all would forget his name.
So what makes scoring two points after the whistle “smart” when it’s not even going to count? Marketability is the answer. These 2 points will be played on Sports networks more than any other dunk from the night which will increase his fanbase and eventually bank account.
Check out Paul George’s dunks from the NBA dunk contest in slow motion. Like bacon, everything is better with slow-mo.
