Thoughts on this list. What omissions would you include?

lol @ this 6'1 midget dunking on Akeem

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes?

Hadn't seen the Kevin Johnson one. Number one will allways be Pippen, best poster dunk ever, made Ewing feel these nuts. Nothing will ever be more embarrassing on a court lol.

Not the greatest dunk but I kept thinking I'd see the Starks' dunk against the Bulls. I guess KJ's dunk works in its place.

This video seems to be all about in-your-face dunks. The Kemp dunk isn't even close to his best. Even in terms of in-your-face dunks, his coast-to-coast move ending with a dunk over Laimbeer was better. One dunk they kept including in the highlight reels and intros to NBA shows in the 90's was his alley oop from Payton where he flies, hangs, and swings across the rim.

You could say there are many people who could have made the list. Pretty shocked there's no Barkley dunk, tbh. He throws down with so much authority and he'll go into people like a steam train.

Check this video out. Penny checks off all the people to dunk over, lol. Malone, Olajuwon, Mutombo, Mourning, Parish, the Bulls, and of course, Ewing.

KJ dunk is legendary whereas Vince's one is simply second to none.

One of my fav dunks though not on that list is AI slamming it down on Camby. Prior to that I don't think I've ever seen a guy barely 6ft tall have such an attempt and actually managing to stuff it down. The gliding dunks he has had against the Sonics were great too. Which now reminds me of the dunk Dirk had against the Sonics, where he blew by Ewing and left it all out on Vin Baker


0:07 and 1:40 vs the Sonics
I lol'd at this comment
-teammate shoots an airball -gets an assist instead
2:44 vs Camby
