There’s little question which camp this 360-degree slam above by Indiana’s Paul George falls into, but it took little time for the rest of the world to take notice of the dunk.

George, a Fresno State product, is averaging career highs in points per game (22.9) and shooting percentage (45.4) in his fourth season in the league.
