This is my second GIF assignment this week. I chose this assignment for the same reason why I chose this last assignment, I love sports. I wanted to be able to create a GIF of what I thought was the best sports play of the year. I chose to go with basketball because it is my favorite sport and I am able to relate to how outstanding some of the plays are.
After watching the NBA Award Show I was able to find this video on youtube.com of 6’4″ Victor Oladipo dunking on 6’11” former NBA defensive player of the year Dwight Howard. This is an outstanding play because not only does Oladipo dunk on him, but he was able to change his direction and move the ball away from the defender in midair. He was able to steal the spotlight from his NBA superstar teammate Russell Westbrook for a few moments when this happened. He went on to win NBA Best Dunk of the Year and in my eyes the best play of the year.
