Gerald Green reasserts Pacers dunking primacy with massive facial on Hawks’ Josh Smith (Video)

Gerald Green really doesn't appreciate Roy Hibbert trying to muscle in on his Arguably the Finest Dunker on the Indiana Pacers turf; the 2007 Slam Dunk Contest champion and 2008 runner-up has a reputation to uphold, after all.

That's why, just seven minutes of game time after Hibbert banged all over Atlanta Hawks center Ivan Johnson, Green made a slick reverse spin during the second quarter of Game 2, made a beeline for the basket and went hunting for even bigger game — Hawks star Josh Smith.

Yiiiiiiiiiiiikes. While I don't particularly enjoy the phrasing, Ian Eagle, it's hard to disagree with your analysis — that was a man's jam.

... Yep, still don't love the phrasing. Love the dunk, though. Now all we need is Paul George going VC-on-Weis on Johan Petro and we'll have a perfect trifecta. (Well, not so perfect if you're a Hawks fan, of course.)

If the clip above isn't rocking for you, please feel free to check out the facial elsewhere, thanks to's Matt Moore.
