We’ve all been there before. A moment where it seems we’ve fallen flat on our face, only to stumble upon greatness.

At the Bell Centre on Wednesday night, Kawhi Leonard of the Toronto Raptors had his fail turn into pure genius.

After a steal, Leonard was driving up the court with nothing between he and the rim. When he went up for the slam though, well, things didn’t work out as planned.

They ended up working out better than planned.


I don’t remember Leonard and Danny Green ever pulling this off when they played with the San Antonio Spurs, but it is great to see this type of chemistry between the two in just the preseason.

That play honestly looked like something I would do while playing NBA 2K. Only, the other team gets the ball after I fail on the dunk and scores at the other end. I need to brush up on my skills.

But nonetheless, it seems that even when Kawhi does wrong, he doesn’t. And the people appreciated his creative way to set up Green.




Usually, trick plays are reserved for the National Football League, but I wouldn’t mind seeing the Raptors mix in a couple on offense this season.
