Harrison Barnes has made a year of throwing down huge dunks, and if we were voting for the Rookie of the Year award based solely on that, he would win hands down. He put down another monster slam against the Toronto Raptors Monday night, his third top-tier slam of the year.
Continuing with the trend, Barnes took to the rim and dropped down a behemoth of a dunk on a big, clumsy white dude.

Harrison Barnes' top three dunks have been better than anyone else's top three dunks this season.— James Herbert (@outsidethenba) January 29, 2013
Of course, this one came with a price. Barnes came away with a bit of a boo-boo, although I'd say Gray still got the raw end of the deal.

Even in a game when Aaron Gray was one of the best players on the floor, ending up with 22 points and nine rebounds, he still ends the evening on the receiving end of a gifable dunk.
