VIDEO: Mo Harkless’ massive slam nearly had opposing bench on their feet

Mo Harkless, Kings, Pistons, Isaiah Stewart

Mo Harkless of the Sacramento Kings destroyed the rim on Thursday with a massive slam that’s an easy contender for Dunk of the Year. Harkless’ dunk was so impressive that even members of the Detroit Pistons bench had to get up. Well, almost.

The Kings forward also put Pistons rookie Isaiah Stewart on a poster (via Hoop Central).


Without any NBA Top Shot moment under his name, this will be one heck of a debut. Stewarts’ wide built didn’t bother Harkless as he shrugged the rookie en route to a monster one-handed jam.

Harkless has had quite the journey in his nine-year NBA career. After making an impact for the Portland Trail Blazers four seasons, the 27-year-old has suited up for the Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks, and the Miami Heat before landing with the Kings just last month.

Since arriving in Sac-Town, Harkless has found a spot in the rotation, giving coach Luke Walton valuable minutes off the bench. His stint with the Kings hasn’t been quite long yet but this play was one heck of a statement. Mo Harkless has proven that he’s capable of making emphatic plays that will surely earn him minutes alongside the young core of the Kings.
