Gerald Green can still get up

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Phoenix Suns swingman Gerald Green has been pretty vocal about wanting to be known as more than just a dunker. Which is understandable — we all want to be known for having many, varied talents and abilities. The thing is, Gerald Green is an incredible dunker, even if these days he mostly restricts those dunks to practice sessions instead of contests at All-Star Weekend.

But that doesn’t mean he still can’t accomplish the amazing. Check out this Instagram video of Green in socks, with no run-up, showing off what he can do…

Here's proof that for @g.green14, it isn't necessarily the shoes.

    No it’s the shoes
    (the shoes?)

    It’s gotta be the shoes!

    That’s just ridiculous.

    Shoes don’t make you jump higher. If you have a high vertical, you are able to dunk it without a shoe.

    Gerald Green, Andrew Wiggins, Zach Lavine and (anyone) for the dunk contest. This will surely bring back some old school dunks. Vince Carter and J. Rich will be proud!

    Not running, just straight hops, the dude got skills, has a nice jumper also. He needs to learn how to play more under control, drive and dish.
