Lakers’ Xavier Henry just destroys Jeff Withey with dunk (VIDEO)

Nov 13, 2013, 1:51 AM EDT

Damn.

Xavier Henry has clearly felt more comfortable in the Mike D’Antoni “do what you feel” system than he did in Monty Williams’ “do what your told” version. Not that this has led to more efficient basketball (he’s shooting 38.7 percent so far this season), but we have seen some big plays from him.

Like this one, where he throws it down all over the Pelican’s rookie Jeff Withey.

That is the best dunk of the season so far.

    Destroys is the right word. I said the same thing as I leaped up off the couch yelling, “he destroyed him!!!”. The replays did it no justice. Live was just remarkable.

      @Malt
      Yeah Homie. Destroy is an appropriate word. I didn’t know Xavier was a reverend because he BAPTIZED Withey!! I also didn’t even know who Jeff Withey was until last night, know we know him as the guy, that got POSTERIZED when the Laker’s played N.O. LLS!!!!!

    There’s nothing like the sound of 15,000 or more people collectively being amazed simultaneously. That was impressive.

    Marvin’s was worse.

      @wwttww
      IDK about that. Xavier took off from the Dotted line and just PUNISHED Withey. Shoulda been an & 1, if you ask me. Either way, it was ( & I’m makin my stink face when I say this too ) …..NAAAAAASTY!!!!!

    they might’ve been teammates at kansas

      They were teammates but didn’t play together. Withey was redshirting after transferring from Arizona.

    The Lakers were getting layups and dunks all night, but that is how you finish. Zah. Vee. Yay!

    Oh my goodness, Henry just became a weapon, cocked and loaded. That finish was just sick….

    Was this Jeff Withey’s first time on the highlight reel? Shame it had to be on the wrong end of it.
