Until recently, only the most hardcore NBA fans knew the name Jeremy Evans. That all changed Thursday morning, however, when a YouTube clip of the Utah Jazz forward’s ridiculous block-and-dunk sequence went viral on the Interwebs. Evans’ name became a worldwide Twitter trend, and many, many jokes were made at the expense of Ronny Turiaf, the opponent on the receiving end of the back-to-back highlights.
Evans uses his spring-loaded legs to jump about 12 feet in the air and swat the 6-foot-9 Turiaf’s jumper, then bounds down the court, grabs the loose ball and dunks right on the hustling-but-hapless Turiaf’s head.
Poor guy. Lucky us. Check out the video above. You can also watch our countdown of the most epic NBA dunks on YouTube right here.
