Dennis Smith Jr.'s missed dunk might have been the best play all Summer League

Smith’s MISSED dunks are as good as most NBA players’ makes.

New Mavericks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. came close to making the best play of the entire damn summer league. If this had gone down ...

Smith boasts a 48-inch vertical leap and almost looked like he jumped too high to complete this one, which is an absurd sentence to type.

The problem for the NBA is that Smith can shoot, too. He shot 4-of-8 from behind the arc on Thursday, including this one.

The matchup was dubbed a Smith vs. De’Aaron Fox showdown, but after Fox quickly left with a minor ankle injury, it turned into a Smith showcase. That was just as thrilling.
