With ridiculous dunks moving from NBA players' hands to fans' eyes and promptly onto YouTube, re-evaluating this season's dunks has become a priority...and an enjoyable one at that.
Between Harrison Barnes' early-season dunk over Nikola Pekovic, DeAndre Jordan's eulogy of Brandon Knight and a few throwback dunks from Kobe Bryant, we have plenty of stuff to look back on and remember fondly.
Blake Griffin does his daily dunk-a-thon alongside Jordan, JaVale McGee's ridiculously long arms create the best opportunity for silly-looking slams and LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are as dunk-happy as they've ever been.
Throw in a handful of bright young point guards ready to throw alley-oops, plus good defenders willing to step in front of streaking dunkers, and we've had a ton of opportunities for alley-oops that have fallen like melting icicles from a gutter.
With the athleticism around the league and everyone's general disregard for being dunked on, this has been the year of the posterization, and it's time we take a long, hard look at the year that was in dunks.
