Remember in 2002 when Jason Richardson(notes) won the dunk contest? That was neat. Then remember a year later, when he won it again? That was one of the better performances ever. Let's all agree that Jason Richardson is good at dunking.
Keep that in mind, because last night's Jason Richardson dunk was another worthy of his canon, only for completely different reasons.
Yikes, Jason Richardson. You just missed a wide open, game-tying dunk.
Against your rivals. In the fourth quarter. With 40 seconds left.
But it's not as bad as it seems. That missed dunk probably still would have won him this year's dunk contest.
