"When you glide, you want to get the footwork right," said Green. & # 39; & # 39; If you do not get your footwork right, if not accelerate, as far or glide as far or get as high as you need to get. Then, at the height of the dunk, you want to reach your peak. This is where we want to get the ball where it should be. Sometimes I can not reach the summit. I dunk, then it seems to go a little higher and then fall down. this has happened before. I'm just trying to put the ball into a certain area. "- Gerald Green
