Referee Stuns Players by Throwing Down Vicious Windmill Dunk

Andrew GouldFeatured ColumnistMarch 18, 2017

No matter what referees do, one side always hates them. That is unless one of them conducts a personal dunk contest during a break.

Recently, to the delight of players and fans alike, an official did just that. With the intent audience looking on, he tossed the ball in the air and sent it home with a thunderous windmill jam.

Bleacher Report's cut revealed a second slam:

Perhaps he was once a young baller who later developed a respect for referees the way a student would for a teacher before becoming an educator.

Let's hope the players—who went especially wild over the unexpected jams—gave him some leeway on questionable calls.
