Sam Put on a Poster

Post by 3rdGenAggie » January 8th, 2021, 8:18 pm

Sam got posterized tonight by Bojan Bogdanovic of all people. Haha.

However, he got fouled on the next posession and knocked down the free throws (as if he ever misses).

Yeah that was a bad look, but the right basketball play. He left his man to protect the basket(albeit not successfully obviously).

Hopefully,this will be a very rare bad moment.

His foul on Bogdanovic was a worse moment.

Deseret news agrees with it being a bad day for Sam. What a headline.

It’s the NBA. If you’re doing your job, you’re going to get dunked on. As fans, we’re make a big deal of it, but it really isn’t.

Of course. Most NBA players get posterized a time or two. It's just kinda funny.

I finally got a chance to watch the “posterizing” and got to admit I don’t see what the fuss is about? I expected this massive dunk...it wasn’t. I expected it to be this over powering display of physical dominance of one player over another....it wasn’t. Sam barely got over as token help as Bojan was already jumping and looked like a half hearted effort to actually stop him. I saw at least 3 dunks by the Aggies last night that were more impressive.

To be fair, that was an all-time great. I wonder what the nose-picking kids is up to these days?

By the way, which of you clowns responded to the tweet above? Sensitive much? You would have thought the DesNews article was some hit piece on Sam. Talk about an inferiority complex. "I'll never read another article! Boo hoo!"

I think the Deseret News is just mad that Sams few games in the NBA have already been more illustrious than Jimbo’s, and I’m only looking at offensive production. It’s similar to how I still make fun of Taysom Hill for sucking at throwing the football despite some objective success in the NFL.

Uhh, this was the dunk of my lifetime. I'm not sure I've ever been more excited when at a game, and that's saying something. I lose my **** pretty easily at games.

Thanks Hipster. Doesn't matter what I'm doing when I see a link to that dunk I have to rewatch it again. Every time. Doesn't matter what I'm doing.

I wouldn't mind seeing the still photo again with the nose-mining kid looking on.


You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
