We’re not even halfway through the NBA season and we already have a strong contestant for Dunk of the Year. During a heated game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Detroit Pistons, Andre Drummond made Serge Ibaka rethink going up with the 7-0 center as he threw down a monstrous dunk on him. Still, there was another recent dunk that might’ve been even better.
Russell Westbrook struggled from a hand injury that sat him out for about a month. Now he’s back and hungry. His explosive ability took advantage of a tired Pistons defense for a powerful dunk that was heard all around Detroit. You can’t help but to watch it over and over again.
Defense is as important as offense, though. Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Bobcats are struggling to find wins, but if there were a defensive play of the month award, Kemba is undoubtedly the winner. During a matchup with the New York Knicks, Kemba flaunted his athleticism to make one of the best blocks of the year.
Then there was Johnny Manziel. He wasn’t only celebrating his starting role for the Cleveland Browns but also his 22nd birthday with a cake as great as you would expect it to be. It’s so money!
But in the end, this week’s Style Points is all about the best rapper in the game right now, Kendrick Lamar.
Here at The Drop, we cover all sports, style, and sneaker news, and all of it comes together in Style Points, where it’s not about what you do but how you do it.
