Gerald Green with double-pump poster of Mason Plumlee (VIDEO)

Gerald Green is a bad, bad man.

The Suns like to run and that suits Green — the former Dunk Contest champion — just fine. Here he takes the outlet pass, carries the break up the left wing and just decides he can finish over Mason Plumlee. With the double pump.

The Nets went on to beat the Suns 108-95. Green had 17 but it was not enough and with the loss Phoenix is 1.5 games back of Memphis for the final playoff spot in the West. Out East the Nets are now half a game back of the Wizards for the five seed but the Nets still have three games to try and make up on Toronto for the Atlantic Division crown.

    Damn, he’s literally overflowing with athleticism.

    Would have easily traded that highlight for a W. I think Channing has to be moved to the bench. Start Marcus

    We are screwed until we can get athletic forwards. Morris twins..frye..plumlee..none of them get to the line regularly. They shoot jumpers. And they get exposed nightly by other more athletic forwards. Therefore, when we aren’t hitting 3’s…we get blown out. Its also why we are dead last in assists. Straight jump shooting team.

    It was too bad the money couldn’t work out to keep Gerald with the Nets, really glad to see him flourishing in Phoenix.

    I’ve always wondered this. How is this dunk considered a “double pump” (or double clutch)? It seems to me like he only pumps it once (down and up). Would a normal dunk be considered a single pump, but we just don’t call it that?

    Took him about 7 years, but am glad to finally see Green flourish in the NBA
