Having not yet seen any mention of a Landry Fields nickname within the NBA blogosphere, it may be time to dust off the old “Air Canada” moniker. Fields, hardly renowned for his aerial exploits, burns not two but three Memphis Grizzlies on his way to a spectacular dunk with the foul in this video.
I’m not ashamed to say that I never thought that paragraph would be written, by anyone, ever.
It also seems no photographers thought it would be written either, as not a single photo of the dunk is currently registering on Google. We’re prepared though and have instead chosen to use an old image of Fields in a spa.
