Henry posterizes ex-teammate Withey
Xavier Henry did his old Kansas teammate dirty.
Henry, the Lakers' newest high-flying sensation, had the dunk of the night Tuesday against New Orleans, at the expense of rookie 7-footer Jeff Withey, his former teammate at Kansas — complete with a dismissive hand to the face.
''That's my guy, but he shouldn't have been under there,'' Henry said with a laugh.
Dunk of the year? Denver's J.J. Hickson might have something to say about that.
When it comes to getting dunked on by an ex-teammate, Hickson knows the feeling. LeBron did it to him and two other Cavs in 2011:
Which raises a good question: Who had the best dunk on a former teammate in NBA history? How about Kenyon Martin on Birdman last April?
Or how about this 1991 Jordan dunk over former UNC teammate Sam Perkins? (At 10-second mark)
What other dunks belong on this list? Let us know in the comments section below.
