Jeremy Tyler destroys rim with monster dunk (GIF)

The New York Knicks haven’t had that great of a season up to this point, but they have managed to start to turn things around. Amid the Melo rumors and the drama surrounding the status of their head coach, the Knicks are starting to play well and it’s showing across the roster.

While Carmelo Anthony has been brilliant lately, so too have bit players like Jeremy Tyler, who had a monster dunk against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

Tyler isn’t a superstar, but his excellent play is what the Knicks need because they must find a way to convince Melo to stay, and showcasing bright young players is one route to go.
