Gerald Green has springs in his legs.  

Seriously, that's the only explanation, as this member of the Phoenix Suns has spent the 2013-14 season just punishing the rim on a regular basis. Normally, a "throwdown" is meant only metaphorically, but Green actually takes a literal interpretation when he decides to jump so high his eyes are level with the rim on this cut to the hoop.
