Sam Presti and the Thunder were obviously sold on Roberson in the pre-draft process. He averaged 11.2 rebounds per game last season and won Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year. And our own Darnell Mayberry reports that “the advanced stats say he’s really good”.
But at this point, far out from his first NBA season, I just want to get a quick look at the highlights. And a quick YouTube search revealed they are plentiful.
During his three seasons at Colorado, the 6-foot-7 210-pounder with explosive hops compiled an impressive dunk reel. Check out his top five:
5. Smooth move to the rim with a powerful finish. Wise move by the defender getting out of the way, as you’ll see later in this list
4. Didn’t count, but it was oh so pretty.
3. Cradle to the grave. That was on a 7-foot-2 dude!!!
2. How long has Roberson been postering defenders? Since Colorado was in the Big 12
1. We may only get to see this athleticism in preseason, Tulsa or blowouts, but looks like he’s going to be fun to watch. Nobody enjoyed this last one as much as the announcer (“Take that”)
