While watching the Cavaliers beat the Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals last night, I sent a rude tweet:
I sent the tweet because I had just watched Marcus Smart bank in a three-point shot off the top of the backboard, which is about the lamest thing you can do in an NBA game. I also sent the tweet because I am a bad jerk.
Understandably, I got a few replies from Celtics fans telling me that I didn’t know what I was talking about and that I needed to watch more basketball. One writer who covers the Celtics for MassLive even set me up for some comeuppance:
And yet, I received no comeuppance. No GIFs of sick Marcus Smart dunks, no video clips of him doing cool crossovers, nothing.
Now I’m just genuinely curious: has Marcus Smart ever done something super cool in an NBA game? A quick YouTube search revealed two put-back dunks, which I guess are pretty cool but also require a minimum of actual basketball skill.
So, please, if you are a Marcus Smart fan sitting on a treasure trove of highlights, please own me. Show me the good Marcus Smart shit and make me look stupid!
