Yesterday, we shared an update from the Denver Nuggets on Danilo Gallinari and the progress he’s made as he recovers from an ACL injury suffered in April 2013. The post included a link to a video on the Nuggets’ site that showed Gallo throwing down a two-hand dunk, his first jam since he underwent knee surgery approximately four months ago.
Here’s an alternate angle of the dunk from the Nuggets’ official Vine account:
Now, look, I know analyzing a single dunk from multiple angles is a little obsessive and, believe me, I’m not trying to turn this into the Zapruder Film. But it’s the offseason. And I’m just excited to see Gallo inching closer to full-strength. When he’s healthy, he’s a lethal weapon for the Nuggets, creating match-up problems for most teams and giving us a lot more options in terms of tinkering with the line-up during various in-game scenarios.
But unless the Nuggets somehow had a camera attached to the rim for this important moment that captured an even cooler angle, I promise this is my last post about Gallo’s routine practice-court slam. (Maybe.)
