BallinEurope doesn’t know if Bryce Taylor can lay claim to Germany’s dunk of the year for the 2010-11 season but, given the ferocity displayed and the stakes for which the former University of Oregon guard was playing, his jam in the deciding game five of the Bundesliga championship series is certainly on the list of contenders.
In the midst of the final game of the BBL season between Brose Baskets Bamberg and Alba Berlin, Taylor and teammates found Bamberg unset on defense after a fast break; Taylor utterly took advantage of the chaos by taking a pass and driving to the hoop.
Predrag Suput was woefully unprepared for his imminent posterization and, first victimized then stared down by Taylor, appears in the video to be adding to the definition of the word “stunned.” Suput’s feeble, perhaps ultimately unverbalizable, protestations were for naught.
Nevetheless, the Serbian and his teammates got the last laugh, taking the title with a 72-65 victory. Video of what they call in Germany a “monsterdunk” follows.
