Andrea Bargnani tries to dunk on two 76ers, doesn’t

Jan 23, 2014, 10:45 AM EDT

If nothing else, you have to credit Andrea Bargnani for his fearless.

Yeah, and nothing else is probably apt.

A spot-up shooter, Bargnani isn’t exactly known for his slams. But he drove as if he were Julius Erving. Then, he completed the play as if he were Andrea Bargnani.

      Or break his neck. I laughed when I first saw it, but that was pretty dangerous.

    LOL!…omg..I think it was the slow motion neck snap that has me rollin’. Whew

    Just stop it Bargnani. Stop it.

    Well, he got fouled. Nobody stepped in the way of Dr. J. and took him out

  10. cruzan80 - Jan 23, 2014 at 1:16 PM

    Damn it Bargnani….smh.

    I see the potential there. Bargnani just needs to keep practicing this play in games. LOL

    The fall is scary. Glad he wasn’t hurt.
