College Basketball Player Posterizes Defender, Takes Him for a Ride

It's one thing to disrespect a defender with an incredible poster dunk. But to ride him around like a horse afterward? That's just wild.

During Saturday's game against Houston Baptist, University of the Incarnate Word (San Antonio, Texas) Cardinals guard Shawn Johnson (6'4") dunked all over 6'3" Huskies guard Asa Cantwell. 

When he went to land, Johnson wound up on Cantwell's shoulders and proceeded to go for a ride.

While some defenders would have been mad at the sequence of events that had just unfolded, Cantwell made sure his opponent did not fall off and get hurt. It may have been a bizarre piggyback-like ride, but safety comes first.
