Each NBA Team's Best Dunker
Have you been wondering who the best dunker is on each team in the NBA?
Well, here you go.
I've listed them by the alphabetical order of their team, from 76ers to Wizards.
Each team has at least one good dunker, whether they consistently produce highlight-reel dunks, or if they have one dunk that has made them famous.
If there's one guy who would've gotten it several years ago, I'll let you know.
On each slide I have put in some video evidence.
By the way, sometimes under the video you will find the end of the writing, which often comes with a YouTube link.
Philadelphia 76ers: Andre Iguodala
It's an absolute travesty that Andre Iguodala didn't win this contest.
Charlotte Bobcats: Corey Maggette
Maggette over Jones
Maggette isn't in his prime anymore, but this one over Solomon Jones—a legitimate seven-footer—was just last season.
Milwaukee Bucks: Brandon Jennings
Listed at around 5'10" or 5'11", Brandon Jennings is one of the NBA's shortest dunking elite. If you ever want to see something cool, just look up one of his Hoopmixtapes.
Chicago Bulls: Derrick Rose
Ronnie Brewer had a really nice dunk over Josh McRoberts once, but this one is obvious.
Cleveland Cavaliers: Alonzo Gee
Alonzo Gee takes this one, but it wouldn't be right of me to show you not this Kyrie Irving poster.
Boston Celtics: Rajon Rondo
Who said Rondo can't dunk? Just wait until the last one.
Los Angeles Clippers: Blake Griffin
Meet Travis Leslie perform one of the greatest dunks I've ever seen. Extra points for doing it on DeMarcus Cousins.
Memphis Grizzlies: Rudy Gay
Rudy Gay combines a long, lean 6'8" frame with crazy athleticism and tenacity. He was born to dunk.
Atlanta Hawks: Josh Smith
He's not an unbelievable game dunker, but if you ever get to see footage of Smith winning the 2005 NBA Dunk Contest at the age of 19, watch it.
Miami Heat: LeBron James
This one goes to LeBron, who recently dunked over John Lucas III (literally). But out of respect for D-Wade, watch him posterize Varejao.
New Orleans Hornets: Trevor Ariza
Two of these were on Jeff Green. Do they have a history?
Utah Jazz: Jeremy Evans
Did he deserve to win the Dunk Contest? Maybe, maybe not. But that was the dunk of the night.
Sacramento Kings: Tyreke Evans
Tyreke wins do to lack of competition. It was either this or a demoralizer over Gary Neal.
New York Knicks: J.R. Smith
The things this guy does in the air are incredible.
Los Angeles Lakers: Kobe Bryant
This is a current thing, not about the past. These dunks might have saved his teams from an embarrassing elimination from last year's playoffs.
Orlando Magic: Dwight Howard
The obvious choice. It's amazing what he does at 6'11", 270 lbs.
In fact, he gets two videos.
Dallas Mavericks: Vince Carter
Ok, so I'm breaking my own rule. But Vinsanity is still the best dunker on the Mavericks.
New Jersey Nets: Gerald Green
Ladies and gentlemen, he's back.
Denver Nuggets: Javale McGee
I'm still upset that he didn't win last year's Dunk Contest.
Indiana Pacers: Paul George
Did Jeremy Evans deserve to win the Dunk Contest? Maybe, maybe not.
Detroit Pistons: Rodney Stuckey
Not surprisingly, the Pistons don't have any really nice dunkers. But this was pretty good for a 6'3" guy on the 6'11" Chris Bosh.
Toronto Raptors: DeMar Derozan
He might not of taken his early exit from the 2011 Dunk Contest well, but maybe he shouldn't have had to.
Houston Rockets: Chase Budinger
I guess some white guys can jump.
San Antonio Spurs: Kawhi Leonard
There are really no other plausible options.
Phoenix Suns: Shannon Brown
Not sure where he's been all season, but he sure was fun to watch on the Lakers.
Oklahoma City Thunder: Russell Westbrook
There is not one clear cut best dunker from this team. I'd have to say Westbrook is slightly ahead of Ibaka, with Durant close behind.
The only big name that doesn't like being in highlights of dunks is Kendrick Perkins.
Kevin Durant: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5Ca3q8EVrY
James Harden: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuoAXgupZ34
Minnesota Timberwolves: Derrick Williams
Didn't do much in the Dunk Contest, but he's still a good dunker.
Portland Trail Blazers: Nicolas Batum
Not surprisingly, the Trail Blazers don't have any amazing dunkers. This one was pretty nice though.
Golden State Warriors: Nate Robinson
One of the very best dunkers of all time. He also blocked Shaq once.
Washington Wizards: John Wall
With JaVale McGee gone, John Wall now has all the spotlight. Some call him John Wall. I call him the 2013 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest champion.
