The next generation is upon us.

The NBA's next generation of highlight-reel dunkers is upon us. In fact, many of these players have been throwing down monster dunks for several years already.

The NBA has always been a cyclical league, and the trend holds true with its greatest high-fliers as well. The Vince Carter-Tracy McGrady-Kobe Bryant-Jason Richardson generation gave way to the current era—one featuring LeBron James, Andre Iguodala, Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade, Amar'e Stoudemire and so many others.

And that era is about to give way to a new generation of dunkers. These guys are guaranteed to show up on highlight reels for years to come.

(Note: For the sake of argument, only players under the age of 26 were considered for this list. The goal was to include players who will be dunking for the better part of the next decade.)
