If you didn’t know who Malcolm Brodgon was before, you probably do now. In Tuesday night’s game between the reigning NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers and the Milwaukee Bucks, Brogdon (aka the President) showed some athleticism.
The first victim was Kyrie Irving.
Want another view of that filthiness?

The Commander in Chief, who is averaging 7.6 points per game and shooting 41% (43% from three) in his rookie season, wasn’t done yet.
LeBron gets hit with the PRESIDENTIAL PARDON!https://t.co/AUYEsFwz05— Behind the Buck Pass (@BehindTheBucks) December 21, 2016
Yes, that’s LeBron James. THE LEBRON JAMES.
He gets my vote for dunk of the year. And Rookie of the Year. Brogdon has had himself a solid week as Virginia announced recently they would be retiring his jersey this season ON PRESIDENT’S DAY NO LESS.
Twitter, rightfully, lost their damn minds.
Former teammates Justin Anderson and Isaiah Wilkins:

Malcolm Brogdon is my new favorite player— Jarrott Brown(15-12) (@jarrott_brown) December 21, 2016
So Malcolm Brogdon's for real?— D (@DBOY035) December 21, 2016
Agreed. Malcolm, you’re the best.
UPDATE: Post game, Brogdon continued being Humble Moses as he talked about the team (they lost in overtime), and was very subdued about his athletic moves.
Brogdon dunking on LeBron earned him No.2 on SportsCenter for the night (the dunk over Kyrie didn’t make it, despite some dumb-luck play by Maryland Basketball coming in at No.8, but that’s none of my business).
