Gerald Henderson broke out his go go gadget arms on this monster dunk (Video)

gerald-henderson-dunkGerald Henderson had a great chance to give the Charlotte Bobcats a win over the Los Angeles Lakers, but he missed a layup with less than five seconds left. Even though Charlotte blew an 18-point lead and lost 101-100 to the Lakers, at least Henderson had a moment for the highlight reel.

With less than eight minutes left in the game, Henderson received a bounce pass and then took off from outside the circle for a crazy dunk over Dwight Howard. That dunk was pretty sick. Henderson went 6-16 for 19 points in the loss.

To give you the full feel of the game, we offer you the video below that proves the Bobcats are still as inept as ever. They had about four shots to beat the Lakers on their final possession, but they blew it. Here’s the video:

Russell Westbrook had a monster dunk and then did a hilarious walk (Video)

Russell Westbrook threw down an absolute monster of a dunk in Oklahoma City’s thrashing of the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday.

Right before halftime, Westbrook blew by Bobcats guard Kemba Walker and elevated for the power jam to put the Thunder up 64-24 going into the break.

“They was sleeping. Everybody’s head turned, so I decided to go and take off,” Westbrook said of the dunk.

Westbrook was then asked why he threw down so hard.

“It’s a tendency. I have a tendency of dunking the ball like that. Just natural, I guess.”

According to the Associated Press, the 40-point advantage was the fifth-largest halftime lead of the shot clock era. I really can’t imagine a team doing worse than scoring 24 points in one half of an NBA game. That’s pathetic, especially considering that the Bobcats appeared to be turning things around.

Westbrook finished with 12 points and 11 assists and didn’t need to play more than 21 minutes in the blowout.

Jeff Green destroys Al Jefferson on dunk (Video)

Jeff Green destroyed Al Jefferson with a monstrous, soul-crushing dunk on Wednesday night in Boston.

The Boston Celtics forward took a pass in the corner and drove to the hole where he elevated from the middle of the paint and just slammed one down on the Jazz big man. Green then stared down Jefferson for good measure, receiving a technical foul for taunting.

Not only did his teammates not seem to mind, they were actually happy about it. Kevin Garnett could be seen saying to him, “That’s what I’m talking about,” while others gave him similar praise.

Green missed last season after undergoing heart surgery, and he was struggling to fit into the team this year. A powerful, statement dunk like this is exactly the sort of play he needed to get going.

Meanwhile, Jefferson, who was once traded from Boston to Minnesota in the Kevin Garnett deal, still has not beaten his former team. The C’s won 98-93 while Green scored a season-high 16 points.

Keion Bell cleanly dunks over six people at Missouri’s first night (Video)

Missouri guard Keion Bell is one of the most athletic players in the nation, and he put that athleticism on display once again on Friday night as Missouri kicked off its season with the annual Mizzou Madness. As you can see from the video above that KOMU 8′s Eric Blumberg shared on Telly, Bell won the sunk contest when he closed out the night by dunking cleanly over six people.

As the senior reminded the Kansas City Star, he has never lost a dunk contest. This does not surprise Missouri coach Frank Haith.

Division II player Angelo Sharpless delivers the dunk of the millennium (Video)

Introducing Angelo Sharpless, a 6’4″ junior SF for Elizabeth City State University. Sharpless decided to casually dunk a basketball at the Ben Wallace Pro-Am Summer League game in Richmond, Va. And by casually dunk, we me go absolutely ape and deliver one of the greatest Phi-Slamma-Jamma’s we’ve seen outside of NBA Jam. This may be the only time you will ever hear the name Angelo Sharpless, but this highlight may live on for a long, long time.

Plus this was either filmed during peak decibel level at the Superdome, or that’s the quality of audio you get when you decide to film with a potato. We’re going to go with the latter.
