All over Europe right now there are a bunch of tune-up games taking place as teams get ready for EuroBasket at the end of the month — the tournament that determines who from the continent is headed to the 2012 Olympics in London and who is watching on television.
From that, we bring you this monster throw down from France’s Nicolas Batum. We don’t bring it to you to show you the nice drive and dish, the terrible defensive rotations or even the dunk itself.
We bring it to you so you can see the Ronny Turiaf celebration dance. Watch and understand. Watching Ronny Turiaf watch great basketball is almost as fun as watching great basketball. Actually, it may be equally as fun. (Hat tip to The Basketball Jones)
