I am now thinking about how satisfying/unsatisfying a highlight video comprised only of 19 Frank Jackson free throws would be. We were pretty close in this one, with 7 free throws alongside only 4 buckets, but still far from a wholly free-throw video. I mean, 19 points just from the stripe would be a really fun thing to have happen. Corey Maggette did something like that in a preseason game for the Bucks, and it was FUN. But that doesn’t mean that the resulting highlights package would be fun.
The most fun part of this video is probably where he got fouled trying to jump literally over Jeremy Clarkson for a dunk. He got all the way up, the ball hit his hand, and his balls hit Clarkson’s forehead, but it didn’t work out. That’s a shame, too, because we have yet to see a dunk that fully displays his leaping ability. Believe me, I’ve seen them all. Literally all of them. All the dunks in the NBA so far. That’s what you have to do when your task is to compile a video of the best dunks of the month.
So this is a career-high for him. We finally got a good, non-free-throwy career high from him, and he goes and ruins it.
