John Wall with the big-time dunk over Pistons’ Greg Monroe (VIDEO)

Jan 19, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

John Wall was able to get into the lane and throw down a dunk over Greg Monroe of the Pistons on Saturday, but it almost seemed as though Monroe was complicit in the way things turned out.

We’ve seen plenty of vicious dunks that ended up being posterizations, but this one felt more like Detroit’s big man was waiting for Wall, and was fine with him making contact before finishing with the dunk, which almost seemed to occur in slow motion.

    Being a Wizards fan (yes we exist) I’ve been his biggest critic, but this year this dude has been absolutely amazing…Once he got the max contract, I figured he’d get complacent. He’s only gotten better.

      Especially now that he’s not nursing serious injuries anymore

      how are you a wizards fan and you think wall would get complacent? that’s not even his dna. i don’t think money would change his type. that thought didn’t cross my mind with wall

    I just think that Monroe isn’t a great rim protector. I think he jumped and then immediately regretting it.

    Supposed to say “Monroe was complicit in his own abuse”. Sounds more scandalous.

    Very nice to see John Wall in the highlights 2 days out of 3. The playoffs this year could be full of great young guys showing off their stuff – Steph Curry again, Wall, Lance Stephenson – lot of great young players around the league now. It’s also great to see these guys are perfecting their jump shots again – thought we had permanently lost the art of the jump shot in the NBA a few years ago in favor of attempts at isolation breakdowns.

    Payback for Monroe dunking on him in a previous game ?

    He must have payed Monroe $500 before the game to let him dunk on him!! Monroe could have slapped him like an annoying mosquito!!!
