We’re nearing the end of the week, so here are some poster dunks to help get you through the day.
Vinsanity on Alonzo Mourning
This Vince Carter dunk is forever in my top 5 of all time. This dunk easily checks all the boxes for a legendary poster.
- on a 7-footer
Just another example of the physical anomaly that is Vinsanity.
The Human Torch on Kenneth Faried
Terrance Ross aka “The Human Torch” showing off the highlight reel athleticism that helped earn him his nickname.
PG24 on Birdman
Players can become superstars in the eyes of the public overnight, and Paul George is no exception. During his 3rd season in 2013, George was having a breakout year.
That season, George averaged 17.4 points per game, a huge improvement from the 12.1 he averaged in the previous year. George was also slowly getting introduced to superstar minutes as he played 37.6 per game.
Even though he received an uptick in minutes and production, George was relatively unknown to casual fans, that was until his breakout against the Big 3 Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
George burst onto the national stage by leading the Pacers in a competitive series against the Heat, and the exclamation point on his emergence was this dunk on Chris “Birdman” Anderson.
Madison Williams Vs. Valparaiso
As if dunking on someone wasn’t enough, Madison Williams, the former Illinois State Redbird, taunts his victim while still under the basket and earns a technical foul.
Shaq on Chris Dudley
I don’t have to say much about this one. Dudley got so mad he threw the ball at Shaq. Just another prime example of why Shaq was the most dominant force in professional basketball.
Baron Davis on AK-47
Baron Davis is one of the most well-rounded guards in NBA history. Not many players had this combination of skill and athleticism. A vicious combo that made him able to compete at the rim despite being only 6’3.
This dunk came during the Warriors playoff run in 2007, the last time the Warriors were in the playoffs before Steph, Klay, and Draymond returned Golden State to the playoffs in 2013.
The “We Believe” Warriors team that Davis spearheaded is also the first and only 8-seed in NBA playoff history to defeat a 1-Seed in a 7-game playoff series. The Warriors bested the (67-15) Dallas Mavericks in six games and then went on to play the Utah Jazz in the next round, where this happened.
These are exactly what you needed to power through the day and get to the weekend.
