Rod Stewart once sang that every picture tells a story. Here's a (moving) picture of Arkansas Pine-Bluff's Savalace Townsend dunking on a guy from Grambling State on January 28. The story it tells goes like this: Once upon a time, Savalace Townsend threw down on a Grambling State player and now he has to go live in a cave on Shutter Island.
On Monday night, Blake Griffin dunked so hard on Kendrick Perkins that the Mayan apocalypse was called off. So emboldened were some NBA players with this new lease on life that they too decided to start dunking on the skulls of their peers, so as to bring about more Armageddon-halting joy. I know that people have been dunking on each other since the mid-16th century, but it's getting very intense out there.
