Nuggets’ J.J. Hickson Posterizes Marvin Williams for Dunk of the Year Thus Far (Video)

Hey, Marvin Williams. Sit down.

That’s a fair guess at what Denver’s J.J. Hickson said to Williams just before he threw down a vicious dunk right in the 6-foot-8 Jazz forward’s face during a game in Utah on Monday.

The former North Carolina star gave it a valiant effort on the defensive end, but against a player with Hickson’s long history of posterization (his slam over Cleveland’s Alonzo Gee last January was particularly memorable), Williams really didn’t stand a chance.

It’s been a rough season overall for the Jazz, as they remain the lone NBA team without a victory. The 100-81 loss to the Nuggets was Utah’s eighth in a row, with only two coming by fewer than 10 points.
