An array of fine slams to choose from on this late season evening, but I've wrapped up my procrastination and come to a decision: Dion Waiters on The Birdman!



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-dA8IYdvQs

As much as I enjoyed Barnes' use of two hands and Jackson's ambition in victimizing a much larger defender, Waiters is the only one of the three candidates who powerfully mashed directly over the top of the shot blocker. I tend to prefer a pure poster to a fly-by, especially over a defender like Birdman and from a distance like the dotted line. Impressive jam.

Glad you came through with this nomination. I was afraid we were looking at a poster-less final day of the season.

Well, PJ Tucker's dunk doesn't seem to exist on video, so 78-year veteran Nazr Mohammed takes the final POTD of the regular season. On a night where each of the league's 30 teams were in action, Nazr Mohammed winning by default is kind of anti-climactic, but I suppose we have the Playoffs to look forward to.

Obviously reference ESPN's top 10 isn't the way to go, but they just did their top 10 plays of the year, and these were the dunks that made the top 10 in descending order.

Gerald Henderson on Dwight
Barnes on Pekovic
Kobe on Humphries
LeBron oop on Terry
DeAndre Jordan on Brandon Knight

Personally, I liked the Barnes dunk more than all of those than the Jordan dunk, and I think that one is debatable. But, ESPN being ESPN, predictably had the Kobe and LeBron dunks higher.

The Kobe and LeBron dunks being ranked ahead of the Barnes dunk is laughable, but like you said, it's ESPN.

I love this thread, and loved your blog when it existed, but it seems like there is sometimes disparity, or at least vagueness, in your ranking system of posterizations. I get that Barnes' dunk was more impressive because he's smaller than the guy he posterized, but its not Jordan/Lebron's fault that the guy who was stupid enough to contest it was smaller than them. Lebron's was especially pretty because of the passing that led to it, and DJ's was IMO the undisputed NASTIEST dunk of the season. They "look" a lot better than the Barnes one. I'd have Barnes above LBJ, but it is not better than the Jordan dunk just because, in retrospect, he dunked on a much bigger guy with a laughable vertical who made a weak contest. Barnes is a stellar athlete and he will have many more posters in his career, but the Jordan dunk was clearly the dunk of the year.


On another note, I think that the MKG power dribble -> poster over Drummond, or was it Monroe?, is much more impressive as well as nasty than a lot of other, more well-known dunks. Especially Hendo's.

Unfortunately the ranking system will always be somewhat vague because there is no systematical way to absolutely quantify anything that makes one dunk better than another.

It's not their fault, but a smaller defender does take away from a dunk. Dunking on a seven-foot guy will always be more impressive than dunking on a point guard, assuming the dunks are comparably difficult and/or spectacular in nature.

Default Re: -StroShow's Daily Poster Thread 2012/13 (Back On Track!)-

Welcome, ISHers and ISHettes, to the 5th Annual StroShow Awards! As you may or may not be aware, The StroShow Awards are the ultimate celebration of the year in slam dunking -- the aerial feats of living legends such as Amare Stoudemire and Blake Griffin have already been observed during the young history of these proceedings, and today we will immortalize men who will carry the torch of athleticism into the future. But before we may do this, we must first recognize the foremost inspiration behind the StroShow Awards: Stromile Swift, better known in basketball circles as the Stro Show himself! For a decade, Stromile punished those who dared stand between he and the rim from the United States all the way to the Far East. With his memorable smash over the top of the seven-foot-six Yao Ming, Swift defined what has come to be known as a "poster."


And now, without further ado, we honor the 2012/13 StroShow Award winner. The StroShow Award winner is he who threw down more POTDs than any other player this season. This year's winner is not a particularly high flyer; however, he earned the honor by crushing a whopping SIX mashes and ending the reign of the modern slam dunking icon and dunk contest champion, Blake Griffin. ISHiots, I give you DeMarcus Cousins!



"I'd, uhm, like to thank my teammates? Is that how you do this? Yeah, I'd like to thank my teammates, and... uhm... my coach, coach Smart. Yeah, um, thanks coach Smart. And commissioner Stern, thanks, but dawg, cut me a break on these damn technical fouls; shit be costing me money. I be try'na git that new Benz, n'aw mean? So yeah, goodnight."

Thank you, DeMarcus, for your eloquence. Next up is the Team Poster Award, for the team which accounted for the most POTDs. The Team Poster Award goes to -- much to my surprise -- the Houston Rockets! The Rockets, a team known to put points on the board but not so much to do so by slam dunking, edged the Lob City Clippers 10-9. Jeremy Lin, who contributed one POTD to his team's winning effort, is here to accept the trophy.



*Lin's acceptance speech drown out by boo'ing Knicks fans*

Moving along, we continue with the Shawn Bradley Award. Although not an award that one truly covets, the Shawn Bradley Award is something of a right of passage for an elite shot blocker, having been won recently by the likes of Swaggerless Serge Ibaka and Chris "Birdman" Andersen. As a matter of fact, Ibaka will share the (dis)honor this season, having been crushed on five times, along with up-and-comer Bismack Biyombo. Chide away, folks, but remember -- these two surely prevented many more slam dunks than they allowed.

Last but not least, the Poster of the Year Award. Always a controversial honor, it will be no different this time around, as Harrison Barnes and DeAndre Jordan submitted a pair of nominations for the ages. Please understand that I've given this matter much consideration. I'm tempted to allow the two players to share the award... however, I don't want to set the type of standard which will lead to many shared awards and few concrete decisions in the future. Anyhow, Ive elected to give the Poster of the Year Award to............................ DeAndre Jordan!


Though Barnes obviously dunked on a bigger man, I simply feel that DJ's dunk is... better enough to warrant this decision.

The 2012/13 All Stro Show Team:

G: James Harden (3)
G: Kobe Bryant (3)
F: Blake Griffin (4)*
F: Jeff Green (5)
C: DeMarcus Cousins (6)
6th: JaVale McGee (5)

*Record third consecutive nomination.


Thank you, everyone, for joining me at the 2012/13 StroShow Awards! Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go home and put some water in Bucknasty's Mama's dish. Good evening!
