So that’s Paul George of the Indiana Pacers going through-the-legs-360. Which is nice, for all of us, really.
I’d also like to point out LeBron who was also on this trip to Shanghai going nuts for George. This is today’s reminder that all of those rivalries you think are significant and meaningful are really the equivalent of guys wearing mustaches during your local community play to indicate that they are villains.

Video: Cal State Bernadino’s Kwame Alexander can basically fly
Yes, this is from college basketball. D-2 college basketball, in fact. But it’s so cool we don’t care. This video contains Cal State Bernadino’s Kwame Alexander, who weighs 240 pounds, taking off from a step or two inside the free throw line, getting his body nearly parallel to the floor, and somehow throwing down over a defender positioned at least a foot outside of the no-charge lane.
It looks like a charge could have been called, but it appears that Alexander got his body so high that the only part of the defender that actually made contact with Alexander was his arms, and he then went to the floor to try to sell the charge. Besides, and perhaps more importantly, would you want to be the referee to make that dunk count as a turnover? Wow.
What’s going to help you get through the end of Memorial Day weekend?
Dunks. Big dunks in big games.
With that in mind we present for your entertainment the best dunks of the NBA conference finals. Dunks that changed games or just rocked rims. Something to look forward to with the NBA finals starting Tuesday (you know LeBron is going to get loose for a couple, and you know Tyson Chandler is going to get an ally-oop over Joel Anthony).
