Gerald Green’s brother soars for spectacular putback dunk – on wrong basket (video)

Gerald Green is one of the NBA’s best dunkers, but the Heat wing isn’t the only member of his family with incredible athleticism. His brother, Garlon, can also slam.

At first glance, this Garlon dunk in Germany is pretty impressive. He races through the lane quicker than anyone can put a body on him, and he elevates for the putback slam.

But look closer, and Garlon is wearing a black jersey. The free-throw shooter is wearing yellow.


He dunked the ball through his own hoop.

What I gather: The other team’s coach told his player to miss intentionally with 0.4 seconds left, and Garlon wanted to disrupt their plans – even if it meant icing the game by giving his own team a four-point deficit.
