POSTERIZED: Quincy Diggs is the real "Akron Hammer"

We are all aware that dunks are infinitely better when somebody is on the receiving end

Sure, a fast-break windmill jam is cool. But when a defender foolishly tries to get in the way, the dunk becomes poster-worthy.

We've all seen it before: Defender tries to take a charge, ends up getting jumped over. Defender tries to time a shot-block, ends up getting a face-full of #POSTERIZED.

But when Akron's Quincy Diggs goes up to finish a easy transition alley-oop, Florida A&M's Markee Teal decides he wants to get some face-time.

This alley-oop was not all that impressive. it was good, but not great. However, when Teal tried to make the last-second block, he turned this from good dunk to a poster-worthy dunk.

I have absolutely no idea what Teal was thinking. It's like he was runing down the court, several steps behind Diggs yelling "WAIT. Wait for me. I want in!".

Don't ask me why he'd be yelling that, but I really have no other explanation as to why Teal would try to make the block so late. He's just setting himself up for the posterization.

And that's exactly what happened.

But was it as good as these?
