Default Can Shane Battier dunk?

Not only does Shaniqua Battier have the most watered down game of any 6'8" wing player that I can remember, I can never remember the guy throwing one down hard either on someone or even in the open court.

he has no game off the dribble to speak of and no swagger to his game. the guy is so bland it kills me to watch.

as Bill Walton would say "Throw it down young man!"

this is his mix with not one dunk on it:

He's 6'8 and somewhat athletic. No doubt he can.

LOL at athletic, he's probably the least athletic 6'8 player in recent memory.

With that said, he's ducked a few times the past few seasons.

Who said he couldn't dunk? I said he's not very athletic, which he isn't.

Why does someone care if he can dunk or not?



These are the kind of basketball thoughts that ran through my mind when I was like seven.

Default Re: Can Shane Battier dunk?

I think I remember him throwing it down a few times at Duke.

He could definately dunk on a fastbreak.... but he's always back on D, or getting boards... not leaking out in transition.
