Frank Kaminsky Nearly Gets Posterized, Gives Props to Opponent After Game

Green Bay’s Keifer Sykes wasn’t quite able to posterize Wisconsin star Frank Kaminsky on this dunk attempt Wednesday night, but he did miss in spectacular fashion.

The 6’0” guard drove hard to the basket and went right at the 7’0Kaminsky. However, when it came time to throw down the hammer, Sykes was rejected by the rim. 

It would have been a serious candidate for Dunk of the Year if Sykes had completed the play. Instead, it will just go down as a spectacular miss. 

Sykes’ near-posterization of Kaminsky led to a pretty great Twitter exchange after the game:

What a cool display of respect between opponents.

LeBron James Gives Headband To Young Cavs Fan After Beating Celtics (Video)

LeBron James scored 41 points in a close win against the Boston Celtics on Friday night at TD Garden, but it was what he did after the game that made one fan’s night.
As King James was heading back to the locker room following the win, he encountered a child wearing a Cavs jersey holding his hand in the air wishing for a high-five.
Instead of a high-five, James took off his sweaty headband and gave the child a souvenir he’ll always cherish along with a pat on the head.

Good move, LeBron.
There’s no doubt that the young fan will be the most popular kid in elementary school for the rest of the year after scoring the headband.
