Seeing your opponent crumple in shame below as you throw down a monster jam over their head has to be one of the most euphoric feelings in sports. Last night, several former Wildcats tried to get into the poster-printing business. You’ve probably already seen Boogie Cousins barreling through Kyle Kuzma, since this one spread through NBA Twitter like chicken pox.

I’m not sure it would be wise of the Lakers to include a now broken man in any of their trade offers for AD.
Aside from Boogie, the man who threw down my all-time favorite dunk at UK, Willie Cauley-Stein, showed off a nice fundamental hesitation before dropping the hammer on Joel Embiid last night.

But my favorite jam from last night’s festivities comes courtesy of Karl-Anthony Towns. Big KAT pretty much came, saw, and conquered Mason Plumlee on his way to the rim.
Sorry Plumlee family.

I’m gonna accept that dunk as consolation revenge just in case we don’t get a NCAA Tourney rematch with Duke this season.
