Rookies don't want to put a target on their back by running their mouth before they prove themselves on the court, so it's intriguing to see how players from this year's NBA draft class responded to being asked which player they would like to dunk on.

Some rookies had a tough time with the question. Should they give an honest answer or just give no comment? Some rookies gave the politically correct response, but those who did answer with names gave pretty predictable answers.

LeBron James and Blake Griffin better watch out because this year's rookie class is coming after them.
