Hey, Blake Griffin, Meet Savalace Townsend

Rod Stewart once sang that every picture tells a story. Here’s a (moving) picture of Arkansas Pine-Bluff’s Savalace Townsend dunking on a guy from Grambling State on January 28. The story it tells goes like this: Once upon a time, Savalace Townsend threw down on a Grambling State player and now he has to go live in a cave on Shutter Island.

Hat tip to Ballin’ Is a Habit (and our own Mark Lisanti) for sharing this moment of emotional cruelty and posterization. Arkansas Pine-Bluff lost, by the way. That just goes to show you, it’s not whether you win or lose but if you go BOOM on a guy’s head.
