WATCH: UK Target Ashton Hagans Destroys Opponent with Dunk

247

Posterizing dunks are beautiful.  This dunk by Ashton Hagans is a powerful destruction of humanity.

Playing in Arkansas at the Real Deal in the Rock tournament, the top-ranked point guard in the 2019 class took flight.  Two guys (incorrectly) thought it was a good idea to jump with Hagans.  One made a decision he will regret forever.

It’s hyperbole to say a dunk killed someone, but the guy who stood in Hagans’ way could not rise from the court.  If Hagans is not charged with first degree murder, he could reclassify and join John Calipari’s 2018 recruiting class.

    Oh, so Hagans is just a “UK target” now? Someone on the KSR staff needs to inform Jack Pilgrim then, as he seems to think Hagans has already reclassified to 2018 AND committed to UK.

      Facts are optional.

      It sure seems that way. It’s pretty hypocritical, coming from a site that regularly trashes other media sites for similar practices (and I hate Thameltoe , Forde and Goodman as much as anyone else).

    One dunk does not a difference maker make.

      There isn’t a number big enough.

      Athleticism is great, gives you advantages but its not the end all. You have to be able to finish off plays ie free throws when getting fouled. He’s a 60% free throw shooter, sound familiar? Have to be able to finish off games at the line.

      So what is this, Ricky P. day at KSR? Why so many trolls.

    Dunking on somebody is neither “destroying” nor “killing” said somebody. It’s scoring two points, same as if the score had been an ordinary layup or floater or pull-up jumpshot.

      Thank you for the lesson in scoring baskets. Can you also provide details on how to rebuild my carburetor?

    If y’all are real fans, y’all need to stfu or be fans of another team! If you a coach, would you pass up the #1 PG in America? John Wall wasn’t the best shooter coming out of hs and he’s doing just fine. Not comparing him to Wall, but he is a poor mans version as he doesn’t change speeds with the left or right while dribbling. He’s explosive and can finish with either hand above the rim. And he plays tough D. I know Hami scarred us, but not every athletic player are the same. Hagans is also a good passer. If he can pass a second earlier, he could have 8-10 assist next year. So for the real fans, be ready for commit from him if Shai goes bc he can be better than Shai

    In college, that’s a charge. The guy that “couldn’t get up” never left his feet, he stood to take contact.

    Issah briscoe was the #1 or #2 ranked PG depending on the recruiting service. He was also long considered a top 15 NBA prospect.
