The NBA is back and that means so are high flying dunks. The season starts on Christmas Day and each team gets 2 preseason games. Last night the Utah Jazz played the Portland Trailblazers in an exhibition games.
In that game Utah’s Jeremy Evans had a high flying dunk. Evans literally dunked on or dunked over Gerald Wallace. However, the dunk did not count because Wallace took a charge on the play.
Despite the offensive foul though, that dunk was filthy. Evans just did not dunk on some average joe;Wallace is one of the best defenders in the league.
Check out the video below of the dunk.
While Los Angeles Clipper star Blake Griffin was at Oklahoma he cheap shot after cheap shot. So far in the NBA things have no changed.
In a pres season game, yes a a pre season game Los Angeles Lakers guard Matt Barnes just pushed Griffin for no reason. Barnes got a flagrant foul on the play. Barnes is a very tough player who is not afraid to mix it up. These two also had a couple of run in last season.
Thankfully cooler heads prevailed after the altercation.
Plays like this are not needed in basketball, players that make this stupid plays should be fined or suspended there is no place in the game for that.
Check out video of the incident below.
