Gerald Green throws down powerful dunk against Pistons (Video)

The Phoenix Suns were pondering trading their stars to tank and rebuild this season. Then they started winning and now the Suns are in a position to chase a Western Conference playoff spot this year and it’s all thanks to their talent group of rag-tag players.

Gerald Green is one of those guys as he’s a journeyman in the NBA but still has the ability to throw down when he needs to. We saw that on Saturday night against the Detroit Pistons when Green waited for a shot before deciding the best option to score was to drive and finish with a nasty slam dunk.

It’s hard to hate a guy who gives it his all, even when he’s not always the best guy on the court at any given time. But when he contributes, he does so beautifully for the Suns and the Pistons were on the receiving end of that Saturday night.
