South Carolina guard Frank Booker found himself at the wrong place in the wrong time at Gamecocks basketball practice on Thursday afternoon.
The graduate-transfer from Florida Atlantic probably thought teammate Chris Silva could do what he was about to do. But he probably didn’t think he would actually do it.
But Silva, a junior and one of the leading Gamecocks returning from last season’s Final Four run, did it. And he did it big.
Watch his vicious, one-handed, monstrous dunk over Booker.

Straight up disrespectful.
But Booker, we know you’re a guard, so finding yourself defending the paint isn’t normal, but you gotta make a business decision there. Don’t try to take the charge, and definitely don’t jump; just get out of the way.
Silva, Booker, and the rest of the Gamecocks begin the season on Nov. 10 at Wofford.
