Justise Winslow, a tree trunk of a man from Duke University, was taken 10th overall by the Miami Heat in the 2015 NBA Draft. Last night was the first time Winslow stepped on the court for a regular-season game, and if you didn’t know who he was before, well, you do now.
With 3:29 left in the second quarter of the Heat’s opening game against the Charlotte Hornets, Winslow caught the ball in the left corner, right in front of the Heat bench. He then exploded to his left, beating Jeremy Lin off the dribble, before skying to throw it down with his left hand over Lin and two other Hornet defenders.
Justise has been served.
