In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes, and Gerald Green's leaping ability.
The champion of the 2007 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, Green showed once again that he can still fly when he soared above the court at US Airways Center in Phoenix on Wednesday night to throw down yet another impressive dunk. The 27-year-old Phoenix Suns swingman grabbed a defensive rebound and pushed the ball in transition. Despite the presence of Pacers center Roy Hibbert -- a man with a habit of turning back would-be dunkers -- in the paint, Green went right for the rim. He drove past and rose over Hibbert for a stunning, right-handed throwdown.
This slam highlighted a 23-point performance for Green as the Suns dealt the Pacers a 124-100 defeat.
