I’m predicting a big year for Will Barton. He had some big dunks and big games last season and put up 15 & 7 yesterday in a Summer League win over the Rockets. He also had the highlight of the night when he threw down a nasty dunk on an inbound play. The dunk was so nasty that the defender, Donatas Motiejunas, just put his head down in shame.
My favorite Barton moment of last season was during the Blazers’ 44 point beatdown on the Nets when Barton scored 12 in the 2nd quarter and had Robin Lopez riding an imaginary horse after a dunk.
You know I can’t talk about inbound dunks without bringing up Vince Carter at UNC.
