Dunking is a part of basketball that is polarizing to the fan in that some are fascinated by it while others are annoyed. But the one thing everyone has in common is the captivation that a monstrous dunk can put on a person. As often as that’s happened in the history of the NBA, Paul George set a new standard on Saturday during a blowout win over the Los Angeles Clippers. The Indiana Pacers were ahead and the crowd and Bankers Life Fieldhouse was already in party mode but PG brought the house down with a thunderous 360 windmill dunk that we never be seen again, especially in a game.
Let’s put it this way: If George enters the dunk contest and completes this masterpiece then, he’ll win in a landslide to a standing ovation. And it be awesome for a new superstar like George to not only enter the washed-up competition, but also win it in a fashion similar to that of Michael Jordan in 1988 when he beat Dominique Wilkinson with that iconic dunk that is now seen on shoes and clothing on young athletes across the world. At this point, we can only dream, but George gave us a glimpse of what we could see with explosive NBA superstars competing in the dunk contest again. Whether or not you’re a fan of dunking, you can’t say that stuff like this wouldn’t be good for the game.
