It's no accident NBA scouts consider Nevada's Deonte Burton perhaps the most athletic point guard prospect in this June's draft class.
What other point guard could throw down a dunk as filthy as the one the 6-foot-1 Burton delivered Wednesday night during an 84-82 double-overtime victory at Boise State?
The play developed almost like a soccer give-and-go as Jerry Evans received an entry pass in the high post while Burton cut hard to the rim. Burton badly beat his man, received a perfectly timed bounce pass from Evans, absorbed contact from hoplessly late help defender Ryan Watkins and unleashed a thunderous one-handed jam.
Watkins was a good sport, responding to Kirk "lol right I forgot he had that much boost."
