Video: Meyers Leonard with impressive dunk, weak celebration

Oct 18, 2012, 8:42 AM EDT

That is Blazers rookie center Meyers Leonard showing he has hops and can finish around the rim. He’s going to get the chance to prove himself, he’s going to get the run this season. Hopefully we see more of that — now that’s how you close the sale.

The “flex” celebration afterwards… not so impressive.

Here is what LaMarcus Aldridge said, via BlazersEdge.

“We’ve seen him catch crazy alley-oops in practice and do those kinds of plays all the time,” Aldridge told Blazersedge. “I think his celebration was more surprising than the actual dunk. It was like the Hulk Hogan, Karate Kid flex. I don’t know what that is. That was the first time for that one.”

“I don’t want to see that ever again,” Aldridge continued, laughing at the mental image and repeating himself for emphasis. “Ever again.”

      2 years later, not so much. He looks lost out there.
