Omri Casspi of the Houston Rockets had an opportunity to join the likes of LeBron James and Blake Griffin as elite NBA dunkers featured on PSD RedZone. Well, Casspi made it to RedZone...but for all of the wrong reasons.
In Houston's 104-92 win over the Boston Celtics on Monday night, Casspi drove the lane and got cut off at the hoop by C's rookie Kelly Olynyk. Instead of throwing the dunk down right in Olynyk's face and adding him to the long list of NBA posterizations this season...he did this.
In fairness, it was pretty good defense by Kelly Olynyk...but if Casspi could have gotten another 3 or 4 feet of air he may have been able to pull this one off. Next time.
Notice anything similar.
