Up against a New York Knicks team that just lost its own unicorn, Kristaps Prozingis, early in the second quarter, The Greek Freak added insult to (knee) injury when he literally jumped over Tim Hardaway, Jr. for an alley-oop dunk for the ages.
Seeing how effortless the All-Star starter pull off what could be the dunk of the year, and him casually getting back on D had us asking ourselves, "Is this the real life?" This must also be the basketball gods' way of telling the Knicks to give it up and embrace the tank.
It didn't take long before the internet blew up with all sorts of reactions to the ludicrous stunt:
Can't really blame him
Even opposing teams took notice
The image that will haunt Hardaway forever
Giving off Vince Carter vibes
He's a bad, BAD man!
A disgrace to his family and father's name
It's hard to turn on Rachel DeMita
Rather, a 30 for 30
Quoting Charles Barkley, 'Take him out!'
That dunk made us rethink our life choices
