Hawks John Collins

Young Atlanta Hawks big man John Collins has been on one heck of a roll since trade rumors popped up surrounding the 22-year-old forward last month.

The downtrodden Cleveland Cavaliers found that out first hand early Wednesday night. Check out Collins throw down an absurd alley-oop on a pass from rookie Cam Reddish.

One handed while falling to the hardwood? That’s right up there with some of the best dunks we’ve seen thus far this season.

Collins entered Wednesday night’s game averaging 25.5 points and 11.8 rebounds on 64% shooting over his past 11 outings.

We now know why.
