Aerial Specialist Gerald Green Does It Again

by Zettler Clay IV

Buzz is high on the Indiana Pacers for the upcoming season. So it’s only right that they — mainly Gerald Green — take their act above the ground to reflect such:



Generally when people use the term “above the rim,” a visual of a full head above the rim is not what actually happens. This is something you expect to see on Space Jam, not in an empty gym where the rules of gravity are supposed to apply.

Between Green, Blake Griffin and That Guy in Miami, Mr. Calloway might have his work cut out for him this season.

      Man Gerald has such a high vert. Still wanna see him in the dunk contest, but with A LOT of creativity considering that vert. Him versus James white haha

      • steagle says:

        Um I take it you didn’t watch him WIN the dunk contest a handful of years ago when he was a Celtic?

    • Ike says:

      Bro i was just thinking the same thing.. i never wanna sound too religious, but watching this you just gotta shake your head. God gave some people mind blowing talents.. everything points to Him.

      • steagle says:

        Not really, it’s called genetics, some people are lucky (Gerald Green is one) and some aren’t. It’s just science bro.

    unbelievable hops for this young man. unfortunately not a basketball player with skills to be a star just hops haha

    • drewndismotha says:

      • Freddie King says:

        @drewndismotha Hmmm…. geez you could say that for anyone… The more PT they get the better their stats are.Here are his stats for his first game this season Min:32 FG:3-12 3Pt FG:1-6 FT:0-4 Reb:4 Ast:0 Stl:0 Blk:1 TO:2 PF:2 Pts:7 Now lets compare that to a player that IS NOT AN ALL STAR that got around the same minutes…. Glen Davis Min:34 FG:13.0-25.0 3Pt FG: 0-0 FT:3.0-5.0 Reb:10.0 Ast:0.0 Stl:0.0 Blk:2.0 PF:3.0 TO:1.0 Pts:29.0…. Gerald Green is not a good NBA player and most likely never will be…

    Oh my. Nice one.

  4. walt says:

    Man can you believe the talent on this team!?! Wow, Paul George, Danny Granger, Roy Hibbert and this guy. Gonna be a lot of Pacer highlights this season. Cant wait!

  5. Alex says:

    Wowwwwwwwwwww!!

  6. Trololol says:

    AWACS – Airborne Whacky and Crazy Sh1t

  7. Dan says:

    Foreshortening. If the camera was level with the rim, then an accurate perspective could be gathered. Still crazy hops though.

  8. Average Joe says:

    Man, those are some hops.

  9. i.c says:

    this is crazy awesome

  10. NBA veteran says:

    I can’t understand how nba.com can’t show videos on iPad.
    People lets call a spade a spade. Nba.com please sort your thing out

  11. bhok says:

    OH MY GOD! i wish i could have that leaping ability.. ftw!

  12. Boss Manager says:

    he should seriously think about joining the clippers, that would be scary to see him, blake griffin, nick young, and deandre jordan all running towards the rim as Chris paul throws up an alley opp

  13. E-SY says:

    Nice to have a new Vince Carter! :-p

  14. Boere says:

    Zekarias Tewolde, feel free to believe in any kind of fairytale you want, but don’t bother me with it.

  15. bigtabs says:

    Lebron James, Blake Griffin, Gerald Green, +1.

    Make it happen, Sprite.

  16. chenzhen says:

    I WILL TAKE GREEN OVER BLAKE & LEBRON ALL DAY….WAIT WHY AM I EVEN MENTIONED LEBRON..HE NEVER ENTER THE DUNK CONTEST BCUZ HE KNOWS HE’LL NEVER BE A CHAMP. MESSAGE TO LEBRON; PROVE TO ME AND THE WORLD THAT YOU ARE WHAT WE THINK YOU ARE. I BET YOU IF GREEN ASK LEBRON TO A DUEL AFTER SEEING THIS DUNK, LEBRON WILL SAY, UHMMM, NO THANKS !

    • Jangalang says:

      You clearly jave no basketball I.Q. i see, you say lebron isnt a champ? HE IS!!! and neither BLAKE nor Green can beat him one on one

      • Dieter says:

        Jangalang, seems your IQ is alot worse. Lebron isn’t an allstar dunk contest champion like Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Josh Smith, Dwight Howard, Nate Robinson, Blake Griffin, … Try to understand what you’re reading, before making a stupid comment about someone’s IQ… it just takes a bit more effort… you can do it !

  17. dude says:

    daaaaaamn

  18. wabbz says:

    At this rate the commish they should raise the rims to 12ft before he leaves office.

  19. Brian says:

    Indiana pacers have a sick, young, and talented line up. A Mamie VS Indiana rematch would be off the chain.

  20. alex says:

    Indiana has such a dinamic team. Lets see if they contest lob city this year, with green, hibbert and george!!!

  21. Dru A. Tripathi says:

  26. BLockley says:

    Wow, just wow. This man’s got some physical talents. That’s all I got to say… Wow.

  27. Dan says:

    for worms like us, everything seems high

  28. god sucks, i have no talent..

  29. MikeyB says:

    Of course god gave him those hops. He never worked hard to earn them, doing weights, training, practicing etc. The good lord almighty just came down from heaven and said “Here Gerald, I am going to give you freakish jumping ability…..” what a crock! I am so sick of hearing about “god given” abilities.

    • Dieter says:

      +1

      If God would exist, he would’ve given more special abilities like walking on the sea, turning water into wine, … Oh this reminds me of some Sci-Fi book called the bible (or was it a script for the Matrix?). Seems like alot of people still don’t believe in themselves and our species…. but the world will get smarter eventually !

  30. laker fan says:

    green actually won a nba slam dunk contest already when he first camme in the league with celtics and God do give talents mr MikeyB

  31. Truevine says:

    There are many people 6’8″, 6’10″ or even taller who could work out all they and and can’t even approach that kind of elevation. God does bless believers and non-believers with special talents that they do have to develop. “Faith without works is dead” also “Works without faith is dead” (James 2:18) All the haters are doing is exposing their hostility towards a god they “claim” not to belive in – but have a compulsion (demonic inspiration) to fight against on a losing cause. Read Revelations – God wins – along with all those that belong to Jesus.

    • Matthew says:

      I once read a science book in school, it told me that the reason everybody can’t jump that high, even if they work out and practice their whole lives, is genetics. You can say all you want about what God does but there will never be any proof of it like there is in science.

      • Truevine says:

        True science validates truth. “Science” wrapped up in a false religion (evolution, darwinism) tries to warp truth and has to constantly cover or revise it’s “theories”. God is sovereign even over the genetic processes. That is evident in His ability to foretell the characteristics and life of people (kings, prophets, Jesus, even you and I), even hundreds of years before they were born. This also validates the Bible. Don’t forget – He also foretells how it will all end. Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent – all displayed in creation and all through history – even to the future. I know – it’s too grand a reality to those who “suppress the truth in unrighteousness” Romans. Beware because He can “turn you over to a depraved mind that you cannot perceive the truth”. Unfortunately many are already exhibiting these traits.

  32. Franck says:

    umm everyone going bananas hoping for Gerald Green to participate in the Dunk competition hold your horses…..I dont have to see another cake candle be blown out… Dunk contest isnt just about hops, its about showmanship ala Vince Carter Ala Nate Robinson, Dwight Howard… Gerald Green showed last time he has no Showmanship

  33. Whaaat?!?! says:

    I’m amazed by the hoopla over Zekarias Tewolde’s comments. This isn’t an article that explores the existence of God. It’s just about Gerald Green having mad hops and indirectly generating excitement for possible Dunk contest participants.

    There’s no need to try to convince everyone of your convictions – religious, atheist, agnostic or otherwise.
