    Top 5 list: NBA in game dunkers

    W/ the NBA slam dunk contest coming up and another recent post, it made me think: Who were the best NBA in game dunkers? My list is:

    1: Vince Carter, not a fan of his game but he has done some pretty nasty stuff.

    2: Dominique Wilkins. Most powerful dunker in my opinion. He hated the rim.

    3: Shawn Kemp, short lived but he had a tooonnnnnn of highlight dunks.

    4: Kobe Bryant, I will get killed for putting him in front of 45, but he dunks on people with more authority than Jordan. He also uses 2 hands. I could switch em i guess.

    5: Jordan, Not a big fan but he had a lot of them and some pretty amazing. The more I think of it, the more I want to leave him off my list.

    I think Shaq should definately get some votes in this. In his younger days if he got the ball next to the basket he was dunking hard. Pretty amazing power. Dwight Howard has had some but not near as much as Shaq. Dr. J is the most over hyped dunker in the history of basketball. Clyde Drexler was also pretty good in game. Lebron will prob go on the list at the end of his career. He gets up in the air like and has some power, I just really dislike him.

    Your Thoughts?

    Re: Top 5 list: NBA in game dunkers

    Kobe Bryant is nowhere near sniffing the top five IMO, I'd put Jordan higher and put Dr. J at number one since he pretty much invented the dunk. Carter and Wilkins deserve to be up there and Kemp is a good pick too.

    I'm a Cavs fan, and LeBron is what got me into the NBA in the first place, but he lacks style, if that is a criteria in the ranking. He is, however, extremely good at getting a dunk and finishing it strong. Also, he's great at making a regular dunk ridiculous by getting super high.

    haha, i'm just afraid of the Jordan hype machine and the repercussions of not listing him in any NBA related top 5.

    I was about to say the same thing. I'm gonna get shredded for saying that about Jordan.

    Re: Top 5 list: NBA in game dunkers

    Carter has some pretty dunks in the open court, but Jordan was the ultimate finisher. Notice most of his dunks here are over the opposing centers.

    Re: Top 5 list: NBA in game dunkers

    'Nique was the best in-game dunker and he was robbed in the '88 dunk contest where he made Jordan look average. I couldn't find the clip on youtube, but in '87 I believe, he decimated Larry Bird on a break away like nobody has ever been decimated by a dunk before.

    Just read through this and am amazed that nobody has said Daryl Dawkins.

    Re: Top 5 list: NBA in game dunkers

    Jordan was an incredible dunker early on in his career. He had such a knack of getting to the hoop and punishing it. As he got older, he stepped his game outside more and more, and so some of the "younger" fans may not remember that. I'd have to say that Nique was a pretty fantastic finisher as well. And Kobe has probably been the best that I've seen (not that I've seen much NBA action) in the past few years.

    Those three definitely make my top 5. I didn't see enough of Dr J to include him. Vince Carter, in his prime, was an incredible dunker as well. Let's see. To round off my list, I'll go with Shawn Kemp too. He had some pretty nasty throw downs from all over the place. He and Payton in NBA Jam were nearly unstoppable! :-)

    Vince Carter jumped over a 7 footer in a game. He is my number one.


    It's all snark from here on out
