Al-Farouq Aminu of the New Orleans Pelicans has never looked much like a star player in his brief time in the NBA. However, with effort, smart play, and his athletic ability, he has been able to continually carve out minutes since coming to New Orleans.
On Wednesday night, we were all thankful he was on the floor to finish this nasty alley-oop from Jrue Holiday all over a helpless Jose Calderon:
The underrated part of that dunk is the fact that the oop isn’t that great and Calderon forces Aminu a little deeper into the post so that it looks like he’s almost directly under the backboard when he flushes it.
New Orleans may not have Anthony Davis due to a broken hand, but they are showing that they can still produce some highlights.
