Can anything else happen to keep the Phoenix Suns from beating the San Antonio Spurs?
After being owned by the Spurs for many years, Phoenix was finally going to get a break to go its way. A late and careless turnover by San Antonio left Jason Richardson with a wide-open dunk. But — in the name of Tim Duncan three-pointers and Robert Horry clotheslines — Richardson’s dunk just wasn’t to be.
Don’t worry, Jason. As Ball Don’t Lie’s Trey Kerby points out, even your missed dunk would have won this year’s dunk contest.
Richardson should have taken a lesson from teammate Amare Stoudemire. Dunk the damn thing.
