Posterizing dunks. Injuries and ensuing returns to action. Celebrations and clutch shots. Heart-stopping rejections. Uniform oddities.
Unsurprisingly, 2013 has provided us with quite a few memorable NBA moments, starting with the closing portion of the 2012-13 season and running through the Christmas slate of games.
The stars are out in full force throughout this slideshow as we recap the year's best images. From the 2013 NBA Finals and LeBron James' euphoric display to the current futility of the New York Knicks, it's all here.
That said, there are only 25 spots and literally thousands of images to choose from. It's impossible to cover everything, so make sure you leave your favorite ones in the comment section below.
