The Syracuse basketball team found out that they have an electric player in Michael Gbinije over the weekend. Gbinije was playing for the Nigerian National Team at the FIBA AfroBasket event on Saturday when he made one of the best plays of the entire summer.
Bleacher Report shared the amazing video of Gbinije making a great play towards the basket after inbounding the ball. He made his way back towards the rim and absolutely rocked it with a nasty one-handed jam.
That was absolutely sick. I haven’t seen a play that good since the middle of last basketball season when Phil Cofer converted a similar dunk over former Duke star Jahlil Okafor.
The Syracuse Orange really have a great athlete on their hands. While the Nigerian team didn’t win the game, Gbinije sure landed himself of the list of amazing dunk videos of the summer.
Let’s hope we see a few more of those this season.
