Their jerseys may no longer be the same shade of Michigan blue, but Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke haven’t forgotten how to play together.
The former Wolverines were two of the three players who teamed up for a Harlem Globetrotters-style dunk at a NBA rookie photo shoot Tuesday. The third player is hoping to build a fanbase from many of the same people that cheered for Burke and Hardaway at the Crisler Center — Pistons rookie Tony Mitchell.
The dunk, which was posted to the Internet as a Vine video, starts with Hardaway laying the ball off the backboard in his new Knicks jersey. Mitchell, in his Pistons blue, catches the ball and bounces it back off the glass, allowing Burke to come in and throw down a one-handed dunk while sporting his Jazz No. 3.
