You simply can’t defend against this.

Gerald Green was caught in limbo 15 feet from the basket, so the choice he made was a logical one for someone with his athletic ability -- just throw it off the backboard, then catch it in midair and finish with the slam.

Best part is the analyst giving his expert take after watching the replay: “See, plays like that really help you.”

I can only hope to reach that level of basketball knowledge in my lifetime.
