Around the country NBA players are showing up early to their team facilities and — when they can get in — working out with teammates in advance of NBA training camps opening next week.
Sonny Weems — back in the NBA after four seasons in Europe after he split during the lockout — is one of those guys, working out in Phoenix. And he is tearing the place up. Literally. Watch him destroy a rim in practice.
Yes, that’s some pretty grainy cell phone footage, but it was released by the Suns and it’s the best we’ve got.
What we know is Weems can throw it down, he didn’t lose that skill overseas.
Consider it his tribute to the just passed Darryl Dawkins.
