As much as I was a fan of the Manu Ginobili-Boris Diaw covert dunk contest, after seeing Ginobili tweak a hamstring throwing down a quality one-hander, maybe they should call it off. The Spurs are injured enough as it is — they can’t risk another injury by having these old guys dunk all over the place.
You know how it is — you get a little older, but still feel great and think you can do the same stuff you used to be able to, only when you do it, your body explodes. That’s basically how I feel every morning, and that’s without gunning for another NBA title at age 36.
So maybe there should be a dunking license, where you have to pass a series of tests in order to still be allowed to dunk. I know that sounds extreme, but I just want the Spurs as healthy as possible during the playoffs. If you have a better idea, leave it in the comments.
