Giannis Antetokounmpo Basically Dunked A Freaking Skyhook

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar perfected the hook shot and made it unstoppable, releasing it so far from the basket and so high into the air that it was coined the skyhook. Or so we thought, until Giannis Antetokounmpo showed off the next phase of its evolution against the Suns tonight: the skydunk. Think about it, it's perfect.… » 1/06/15 10:20pm 1/06/15 10:20pm

Monta Ellis's Game-Winning Buzzer-Beater Was Bananas

I think it's time to admit that there probably isn't another player in the NBA who is better at hitting reckless, off-balance buzzer-beaters than Monta Ellis.
