So i was watching one of those best dunks of all time videos on youtube, and they always piss me off because alot of my favorite dunkers are always left off. Whether that is fair or not, i dont know im too biased to make that decision. So what i have decided to do is compile my own list of my 25 favorite dunks ever. Keep in mind, these are not the 25 dunks that i think are the best, they are just some of my personal favorites. Each one has a video link, and almost all of them are dunks i witnessed live on tv, thats why theres nothing too old. These are my 25 favorite throwdowns i can recall at the monment.. Also, feel free to make your own lists.. if lots of people make lists with video links this could be a great thread.
#25: Nene on Tyson Chandler
Check the cool rim hang
#24: Chris Andersen on Mo Taylor
I cant find the damn video, but i loved this dunk. The hornets were playing great, kicking serious ass, and Chris frickin Andersen put this facial on Mo Taylor and hung on the rim with one hand while spinning a 360 and pointing at Taylor with his free hand... Owned.
#23: Stromile Swift AMAZING oop.
I didnt see this live, god i wish i did so bad. its the most amazing oop i have ever seen. look how far he reached his arm back to catch the ball, and thows it down with power, then the scream.
#22: Lebron James on Rasheed Wallace
Not only did he own sheed ridiculously bad, it was a huge basket in a huge game. Lebron was amazing in that game, something i will never forget.
#21: Flip Murray on Captain Kirk
One of those plays that i didnt see coming. It surprised the hell out of me. I had never seen the guy dunk, then he goes and does this.
#20: Carmelo Anthony on Theo Ratliff
Holy ****!!! I went nuts when this dunk happened. It was late in a close game too i believe.
#19: Mikki Moore on the Cavs
Mikki was going nuts, gettingin peoples faces and ****, then he threw this one down. It was damn nice.
#18: Tim Thomas on Adrian Griffin
Timmy was nasty in this series, and this dunk was the exclamation point.
#17: Terrance Kinsey on AK47
I did not expect this at all when i saw Kinsey take off. I thought there was absolutely no way he could throw this down. He did though, and it was sick.
#16: Rashad Mccants on Camby
I love in your face plays. He put it in Camby's face and got ejected for it.
#15: Matt Barnes on Dirk
just more proff that GS own the Mavs
#14: Kenyon Martin on Dwyane Wade
This one just happened like a week ago.. I love that Kmart is back from injury, the L wasnt the same without him. Plus Wade just pisses me off and its nice tosee him get owned.
#13: Eddy Curry game winning oop from Crawford
I was so pumped for this game. I like the lakers and the Knicks. This was the best possible ending, an alley oop dunk from my favorite knick to my second favorite knick.
#12: Kwame Brown on Nocioni
I cant stand Nocioni. People hate on Kwame, but i have always liked him. Nasty dunk, check how the ball almost fell out of his hand though
#11: Antonio Daniels on AK47
are you ****ting me?
#10: Baron Davis vs. the Mavs
This is the least amazing dunk on the list, but it was a huge basket in a huge game. Terry tried to foul him at half court but he ripped through him and dunked it. I love the emotion afterwards.
#9: Dermarr Johnson on the Spurs
I can't find a video for this one, but it was in the 04/05 playoffs and he went up and under around a couple spurs. i was really pulling for the nuggets, unfortunately they lost.
Stromile Swift double pump vs. kings
So damn underrated, the double pump dunk. amazing dunk, he had a great game too.
#7: Stromile Swift Putback vs. Kings
I was half asleep when this dunk happened. It was late in a boring ass 10:30pm game on a thrusday night when i had school the next day. This dunk came out of nowhere and woke me up immediately.
#6: Tyrus Thomas on Josh Smith
I thought Josh had the block.. I was so wrong.
#5: Deshawn Stevenson on Gerald Wallace
This is one of the ones i didnt see live, but i love it. He dunks on his own defender after crossing him up, full body contact style, then stares him down. nasty.
#4: Baron Davis on AK47
I skipped my senior prom to watch this game, and it was one of the best decisions i have ever made. nasty ****ing dunk.
#3: Stromile Swift on Jsmooth and Zaza
Swift was having a great game, but it wasnt complete until this nasty dunk. I was waiting all game, and when he did this i didnt expect it, i jumped out of my seat and almost drove my head through the ceiling tiles.
#2: Matt Barnes on Devin Harris
I absolutely love this dunk. I was so into that series it was ridiculous. When i think GS vs. Mavs, i think of this dunk. He put in in Devin Harris's annoying, flopping ass face in their own arena in the playoffs in the biggest upset of all time. Also, i love how the announcer says "barnes to the basket!!!"
#1: Stromile Swift on Yao Ming
this is the dunk that made me love the NBA and the stro show. this dunk litteraly changed my life (
).. if this dunk had rimmed out, i would probably have a different favorite player, a different ISH username, a different favorite team... this is the most in your face dunk of all time. the ultimate poster.
