When James White signed a one-year deal with the New York Knicks last offseason, he told reporters in Las Vegas, where was competing on the team's summer-league squad, that he wanted to be known as a complete player in the NBA. "Anybody who knows the game and actually has seen me play before knows that I'm actually a good player, and not just a dunker," the 6-7 forward said at the time. But here's the thing: White is not just a dunker; he's arguably the best dunker on the planet. You may have never heard of the 30-year-old because he averages 1.8 points per game for the Knicks, in his third season in the league since 2006. During the other years, he played mostly overseas in Russia and Italy.
