Missouri-bound Phil Pressey unloads on his future teammate

Here's a quandary for Missouri basketball fans.

Are you more excited that your 5-foot-10 future point guard Phil Pressey threw down a ridiculous dunk at a Texas all-star game on Friday, or more concerned that the kid he posterized was 6-foot-8 fellow Mizzou signee Tony Mitchell?

To be fair to Mitchell, Pressey is blessed with pretty good genes for a sub-6-footer.

Pressey, Rivals.com's 15th-ranked point guard in the class of 2010, is the son of former NBA player Paul Pressey, who some consider to be the originator of the point-forward position. Older brother Matt is a shooting guard at Navarro College in Texas and older sister Angie was a standout outside hitter in volleyball at Cal despite being an undersized 5-foot-8.

Enviable bloodlines or not, that was still an impressive dunk for a kid who stands a few inches shy of 6 feet. And you can bet Pressey will let Mitchell hear about it a little when both arrive at Mizzou in a few months.
