Kansas Forward Julian Wright

    Kansas forward Julian Wright has it all. The quick hands and anticipation on defense, the speed to get a breakaway dunk, and then, unfortunately, the spontaneous onset of quadriplegia during said dunk attempt.

    Ouch. As the ESPN guy said, you hate to laugh at him ... but fortunately, the game was at home, and it was a game they won.

    That was weird. It was like he was practicing for the dunk contest, took off wrong and decided to stop and try it again.

    Maybe if the idiot had just gone straight up for as dunk instead of being a showboating asshole and wouldn't have made a fool of himself.

    If I'm his coach I tell him one thing, the next time you pull crap like that, your ass is on the bench for the rest of the game.

    Just throw the thing down and forget about the SC highlight bullshit.

    It's still funny as heck to watch.

    Like spnited said, bench the fucker.

    Go up with two hands, don't pull yourself up, don't slap the backboard on the way up or down, don't thump your chest ... score your two fuckin' point and get back on defense.

    You go try it, but land on your head.
    Maybe you'll stop posting stupid shit here.

    Self immediately took Wright out and didn't put him back in until the second half.

    Yep. Fortunately, Julian Wright -- despite what you saw in that clip -- isn't someone who commands the spotlight. He's a versatile big man who loves to collect assists. Just a fluke/bad luck there.

    I gotta love how D_B wrote the stuff after the link as if it was his own, when he just copied the Deadspin teaser.

    He does that all the time, really.

    Maybe he'll do that again when Kansas chokes in the tournament once again ... I'm guessing Southern Illinois takes the Chickenhawks down in the first round.
