Dwight Howard Watches as Gerald Henderson Throws Down Dunk-of-Year Nominee
USA TODAY Sports

You know those moments in an NBA game that cause you to jump out of your seat and make sounds that aren't found in an English dictionary? That just happened.

Dwight Howard could only watch as Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson threw down a dunk-of-the-year nominee.

If you thought Blake Griffin's dunks over Kendrick Perkins and Pau Gasol were phenomenal, wait until you see someone five inches shorter do the same thing over D-12.

You know you're doing something right when you have the "Wow!" moment on a night which Joakim Noah posted a triple-double and Tim Duncan put up 31 points, 18 rebounds, six assists, five blocks and two steals.

Twitter instantly erupted, crowning Hendo as the man of the evening.

LakersNation easily had the Tweet of the night.

 

As for those who believe this wasn't a dunk, don't forget how D-12 won a Slam Dunk Contest. Per his own rules, that was an official throwdown!

Just ask ESPN's J.A. Adande.

 

You don't have to say it, SportsCenter already did.

 

This is the type of highlight that will define Henderson's rapidly rising career. Just don't think he's limited to that, folks, this kid is special. This was just the video he'll show his grandkids when they speak of D-12 being an all-time great.
