Phoenix Suns swingman Gerald Green may not have competed in the 2014 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, but his alley-oop slam over Denver Nuggets big man Kenneth Faried is a reminder that he should have been present in New Orleans.

After a missed three-pointer, Suns point guard Goran Dragic received an outlet pass from Channing Frye before setting up Green for the monstrous dunk. The "Manimal" did all he could to stop it, but wound up on a poster instead.
