Shaun Livingston was a highly-touted prospect way back when. The fourth-overall pick in 2004, a gruesome knee injury in 2007 sapped Livingston of much of his upside.

But it didn't strip him of all of his athleticism, apparently.

On Monday, Livingston got way up to throw down an alley-oop from Paul Pierce.

We're huge Livingston fans, so it's been great to see him settle into a consistent, productive role with the Nets this season. Now 28 years old, Livingston is averaging 7.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in 24.6 minutes, numbers he hasn't put up since before his injury.
