Indiana Pacers forward Paul George ramped up the creativity in the second round by turning out the lights and wearing a glow-in-the-dark uniform for a visually interesting dunk. In the third round, he rewarmed an old idea: the sticker dunk.
George put a sticker of Boston Celtics legend and Pacers bigwig Larry Bird on his left hand and attempted an up-and-under slam from the corner. The only problem? He missed on his first four attempts, and put two stickers up without putting the ball in the hoop.
That left George to merely execute his dunk on his subsequent tries ... while still going through the motions and slapping the backboard without putting up a sticker. It was anticlimactic when he finally slammed one home, but he did put up the night's best result, a 40, on the Dunk Intensity Meter.
