Breaking down the Le’Bryan Nash dunk on Texas

Here’s the Zapruder-like play-by-play of Nash’s dunk in Austin.

I mentioned this in my thoughts and notes after the game but in the first half on Wednesday, after Le’Bryan Nash’s 1,394th failed attempt at dunking on an opponent, I wrote the words “Why does Nash try to dunk on everyone?” in my notebook.

About 45 minutes later I got an answer.

Nash tried to end the life of Demarcus Holland and future generations of Demarcus Hollands and it was preposterously amazing. Here’s a quick Zapruder-like breakdown.

The whole thing started with a Demarcus Holland turnover. Jeff Newberry got out on the fast break while Holland got back and had absolutely no clue what was about to go down.

Nash trailed hard, got fed by Newberry and Holland committed suicide. Anthony Allen knows.

The two best parts immediately following the dunk from this photo were Travis Ford asking for a foul and Ford Stuen doing the white man “hold everybody on the bench back even though nobody is going anywhere” thing.

The best part of all of it?

Easily Anthony Allen high-stepping from his spot on the bench.

Also, this is not going to be hung in Demarcus Hollands’ parents home (or the homes of any of his relatives).

Nash is now 1-for-1,395 in dunking on people in his career. Truth be told though, I wouldn’t trade it for the other 1,394 misses.
