Arrow Who's the King of Windmills in today's NBA?

It's probably Dominique Wilkins all-time but currently, it's gotta be Vince Carter. His combination of elite jumping ability, body control and long arms make him the perfect candidate for windmills. Check out this mix:

Disagree. I've never seen anyone in today's game that can reverse windmill over two players the way kobe does.

shut up, Kobe doesn;t even deserve to be mentioned in here. J-Smooth is probably the one that does them most commonly, J-Rich, D-Mase, lots, but shut up about Kobe.

I would take vince seriously if he weren't only a dunker and actually tried to win games all the time like he gets paid to do

He's visibly miles slower now. Look at how quick and active he was back then. A combination of injuries and age.

I like Vince's. JRich's looks mechanical or something. Vince is the greatest dunker of all time.

I like Josh Smith, and Richardson, but Vince takes it.

I especially like the way Vince finishes the windmill with his elbow still bent.
It allows for a powerful, jagged finish, without boringly relying on body weight to break the rim away.

Looks much better.

Are you kidding me? Vince's windmill is great, but J-rich's is off the chains. He does it so fast and perfectly.
