Shook Ankles: The Unrepeatable Genius
Yesterday I wrote that what makes a superstar a superstar is an ability to do one thing really well that nobody else can. In the clip above, Deron Williams crosses the best defensive guard in basketball over, and then throws down a merciless one-handed jam on Joel Anthony, a player whose sole responsibility on the basketball court is preventing dunks from the opposition. Just watch it; Wade is left upright and flat footed. Can you think of anyone else in the league who can reenact this sequence? I’m not sure there is.
