There aren't many things that I am absolutely certain of in this world, but I'm damn near convinced that I will be able to accurately spell Giannis' last name without using the copy/paste feature before I am even close to understanding what he's able to do on the basketball court. This wasn't the first self alley-oop and it won't be the last, but it might be the only one that wasn't premeditated before liftoff and it's definitely the only one that was slammed home by a person who was awkwardly fading away from the basket when he took his original shot. High school physics was a long time ago, but I don't remember reading that momentum becomes moot at a certain level of athleticism. I didn't think there were genes that were superior to the most basic forces of nature, but I just watched a guy awkwardly land on one foot with his lower body facing a completely different direction and still manage to out-leap his opponents to his own rebound a millisecond later. Maybe my anatomy professor failed me, but I was of the belief that the human body wasn't capable of that type of contortion that's usually reserved for 'Stretch Armstrong' action figures. Either 'The Skeleton Dance' is a load of bullshit or the 6'11 freak of a Greek point guard has a vastly different version of it, because the bone structure of normal people isn't supposed to allow them to move like that...
