The NBA world finally found out on Friday night what the Wizards locker room had waited so long to be revealed, that second-year guard Tomas Satoransky can flat-out dunk.
For the first time in his NBA career, Satoransky embarrassed an opponent with a thunderous poster dunk. The victim was Rockets center Zhou Qi. Perhaps Qi was not aware of Satoransky's dunking prowess, but now he is.
Satoransky has thrown down slams like that in practice and before games, so his teammates knew it was coming. It was just a matter of when.
"'Bout time, dammit. I wish I was 6-7 sometimes, man I'd get up there and put a few people in the rim myself," guard Bradley Beal said after the 121-103 win. "Sato's probably got the most bounce on the team. It's about time he exploited it."

“Everybody knows Tomas is so athletic. It's good to see him finally catch somebody with a dunk," guard Jodie Meeks said.
Satoransky himself knew it was a long time coming. He has dunked on people plenty of times over the years in international play with the Czech national team and in the Euroleague. But it had been a few years.
"It was kind of a relief to know that I can still do that because I was starting to think that I don't have it in me," he said.
Satoransky's dunk made the rounds on Twitter and there were likely a lot of Google searches that followed, people wondering who this guy is. Satoransky had yet to check his phone when he met with the media, but knew there would be plenty of messages.
Satoransky also wants to see the highlight himself because he was so in the zone he didn't get to see the reaction on the bench.
"I need to see those reactions. I think [Marcin Gortat]'s one will be priceless. I've gotta see that one," Satoransky joked.
Indeed, Gortat went nuts.
Now comes an important question. Has Satoransky finally shed the label as a 'practice dunker' by his Wizards teammates?
"No, not really because we gotta see him get a fastbreak and do a trick. He has a lot of tricks," guard John Wall said.
"I need him to do it on DeAndre [Jordan] or something," Beal said. "We need a bigger dunk, but we'll take it."
