Qualification of a Popular Comparison

Sat Jan 22, 2005

Several folks have commented that the Manu Ginobli’s dunk in overtime last night in the Suns game over Stoudemire and Marion was positively Goodwinian. While not disputing the essence of this claim, I should remind everyone that his dunk a) occurred during a game and b) was executed on a 10-ft. rim.

I should also add that not only did that dunk end the game, it also ended the Suns’ entire season. I no longer think they’re going to make it out of the first round of the playoffs.
