    That’s like the 3rd time that’s happened this year, at least. I think it was Dunn who came down on his face, checking his teeth were still there. Players need to stop hanging on the rim in that situation.

    On the contrary, they need to hang on the rim a little longer until there body's momentum comes back and then when they let go they come right down because their legs are under them. This fall here looks like Brown didn't mean to let go but couldn't hang on longer or hands slipped.

    This also happens a ton because players are jumping off of one foot. Which I'm not against but when you jump off of two fit you have more control naturally.

    I dunno man, guys go up and dunk and come down immediately all the time and are fine. These slips only happen when they try and hang and lose their grip. Fast break all alone, guys go up running full speed and dunk and come right down, land no problem. I think in these cases with a defender or 2 on their hip/heels, the same thing applies. Only risk is coming down and landing on a foot, turning an ankle.

    Yeah, I could see this being a factor too.

    So after watching it a couple times, he has a pretty serious concussion. I'm almost positive that when he hits the ground his arms go into spasm which can happen with big time brain trauma. You see it with football players fairly often when they get hit and "lock up".

    I don't know what happened in the game, but hopefully he was taken out and put into concussion protocol.

    And yeah on plays like that, you want to hold on to the rim as long as possible or never really grab the rim at all. Holding it for that split second and losing your grip is what causes the nasty falls.

    Big solid dudes running full speed with the sudden deceleration of that body mass contingent on sweaty hands grabbing the rim after a jam to stop them .... yeah multiple times this year and those falls are horrific looking.

    really didn't like watching that one. the look on his face is a little disconcerting. like a squirrel that got hit by a car and is momentarily alive.

    this. I don't think many of us realize how hard it is to go full speed and jump to dunk all while being able to hold onto the rim until their feet are under them again

    When I dunk, I always swing back so I can drop straight down
