One of most exciting, but very common, ways of scoring is dunking.
Whenever I reunite with my brothers and cousins to watch basketball games and someone throws it down over two defenders or does something flashy, we holler and scream and say "OMG DID HE DO THAT" or just a simple "WOW".
Although dunks are very exciting, there are very few who make a name for themselves this way. Out of the few I had to cut it down to five.
They are listed in no particular order, because they are all equal in terms of amazement, creativity, and style.
Some of your picks may not have made the cut. If they didn't and you really think they should have, leave a comment and I may reconsider.
These dunks are not just dunks done one time.
These are signature dunks done often by the amazing stars who did them as a routine.
Please comment and enjoy!
This dunk was performed by the greatest player of all-time, who you can say had a knack for throwing it down.
This dunk is personally my favorite dunk of all-time and if some of you young fellows reading it never saw it, follow the link.
The "Jumpman" is also a logo Nike uses to sponsor Jordan and his merchandise, so if any of you guys got on any of Jordan's kicks, you should see the logo.
That's the link. It may be from a video game but its the best I could find. Sorry, but you still can see how amazing this dunk was.
Almost every big man, if not every big man, can throw it down.
But one thing you rarely see is a big man throw it down with style.
Some of you young gunners out their probably know that the new Superman, Dwight Howard, can dunk with pure style and athleticism, as you guys can see some of his highlights in his dunk contest recently.
But this is not about Dwight Howard.
This is about Karl Malone, the PF who ran a gorgeous pick and roll.
Karl Malone had a talent for scoring and not so much for flashy dunking, but this one signature dunk which he did occasionally made the list.
While he was in the air, he would pose as if he were taking a picture.
This is the video. Again it was hard to find him doing the actual dunk, but I did find LeBron copying his dunk.
Unlike the other dunks, this has no signature name.
But it is pure beauty the gracefulness how this guy practically walks through air.
Dr. J clutches the ball in one hand, swings it around, and throws it down. Watch this and you will be amazed.
By the way, if you know the name of this dunk, please comment.
So far, this is the only one I have actually found the actual person doing this in a real NBA game.
This guy is the only guy on the list who didn't have that much success in the NBA.
This guy was not the most popular but he sure could throw it down.
I never watched him play, but while I was doing my research I saw this guy dunk and it was amazing.
I'm just shocked this is the first time I heard of him.
Again, I ask from you the name of this dunk.
This dunk occurred when the dunk contest was back in style.
This dunk was amazingly awesome.
When I saw this, I almost cried of amazement.
This dunk was extremely difficult to pull off, but it was simply great.
Now you see why I almost cried.
Enjoy please, like, and/or comment!
