POSTERIZED: Deville Smith goes both ways

I spent a good chunk of time watching, re-watching and analyzing this dunk. I could not decide whether or not the following dunk was POSTERIZED-worthy.

Sure, it's a good dunk.

Is it a spectacular dunk?

No, it is most certainly not.

But then I remembered that Deville Smith is only 5-foot-11 AND right-handed.

Yeah, that's kinda impressive.

I'm 6-foot-3 and at my athletic peak, struggled to dunk a full-sized basketball with my strong hand. But then again, that's probably why Smith is playing for a top-25 D-1 team, and I, well, write about it.

But poor Deniz Kilicli. This is his third appearance on #POSTERIZED this year, and he's been on the receiving end twice.
