When Joey Dorsey smashed the backdrop (Vid)

On September 12, 2012, the European Champion Olympiacos had travelled to southern Italy for a series of friendly games in the context of pre-season. The team of Giorgos Barztokas had played against Sassari getting an easy 106-87, however, this game remained in everyone’s memory mostly for the smashed backboard following a dunk by Joey Dorsey.

The video of the American center bringing the backboard down and talking about his ‘feat’ is on Olympiacos official YouTube channel as well as another one a few days later, when Dorsey’s watching the dunk by John Hutson that smashed the backboard at the SEF during a Greek All Star game and gets to compare it to his.

These days, that we all #stayathome, we’ll be trying to bring back unique moment to memory either through video, or photos.
