Cameron Johnson’s ridiculous dunk on PJ Tucker births hilarious new NBA meme

You may be seeing PJ Tucker on posters for years to come.

Suns forward Cameron Johnson tried to metaphorically end Tucker’s career during Suns-Bucks Game 3, with the third-year guard unleashing a furious dunk on Tucker that’s sure to be on posters and highlight reels for a long time.

Take a look at this absolute beauty, and then look again, and then look again.

Tucker was whistled for a blocking call, with Milwaukee challenging the call, going to replay review to see whether Johnson actually committed an offensive foul. The call on the court was upheld after a commercial break, taking some steam out of the highlight-reel moment. As it turns out, the only thing that Johnson was guilty of was taking Tucker’s soul. (That’s not a foul in the NBA rulebook.)

The dunk accounted for the most emphatic two points of Johnson’s 14-point effort, but the Suns would still fall short of the Bucks in Game 3, 120-100. Phoenix still holds the 2-1 NBA Finals lead entering Wednesday night’s Game 4.

Not to be forgotten is Tucker: The Bucks forward has been one of the most entertaining — and most pesky — defenders during the NBA playoffs, but NBA Twitter didn’t let him live the posterization down.
