Cousins even though I think he's an idiot.

I was leaning that way, but the way Smith soars so high and so far and dunks with his right hand off his right foot over the outstretched arm of a 7-foot-infinity defender is crazy impressive to me. The most impressive thing about Cousins' play was actually the bulldozer move before the dunk.

I'd take Smith in this one. Cousins' was kind of plain jane, not feeling it.

Today happens to be one of those days where I wish I could choose two winners, as both JR Smith and DeMarcus Cousins are entirely deserving of this particular POTD. Each player threw down one of two remarkable slam dunks that, although very different, are almost equally impressive. Smith took flight from the fringe of the painted area and, having launched off of his right foot, soared to the rack for a furious right-handed throwdown over seven-foot-forever Ian Mahinmi. Cousins, on the other hand, elected to go through the defender, Bernard James. Utilizing a powerful left shoulder, DeMarcus blasted James backwards with a Shaquille O’Neal bulldozer move and plowed his way to the iron for a right-handed smash.

I’m beyond torn. Smith’s dunk is a thing of beauty, especially in slow motion. Cousins’ dunk, on the other hand, is less beautiful than it is disgusting — in a good way. JR’s dunk makes you say WOW!, and DeMarcus’s makes you say SHIT! Which am I supposed to choose, WOW! or SHIT!?

And that, my friends, is how I finally came to my conclusion.



http://youtu.be/ry2SWXEZ9oM

This is, after all, the Poster of the Day, where things are judged on a nastiness scale depicting the face of a man who had almost certainly just exclaimed, “SHIT!”

Despite the sheer amazingness of what JR pulled off, I had no choice but to roll with DeMarcus. His dunk was precisely the sort of insulting, degrading, humiliating, nasty power jam that the POTD is all about.

The way I look at the Smith/Cousins dunk was Smiths was more artistic and had a higher degree of difficultly but Cousins one was just to damn personal he pretty much just said "**** this" and went at them.

I really liked them both and did not want to pick one, but I thought Cousins' dunk was more befitting of the thread.

The Memphis Grizzlies had been having some issues with their transition offense against San Antonio, but it would end up being the fast break that allowed them to come back from down seven in the fourth quarter and beat the rival Spurs in overtime. Following a run out and Zach Randolph layup that brought the Grizzlies to within two, Rudy Gay finished a break ignited by a Tony Allen steal with a right-handed sledgehammer of a jam. Tie game.



http://youtu.be/1-0owSPBsCE

The most awesome thing about this dunk is Manu Ginobili. Just watch him duck for cover when he realizes there’s absolutely nothing else he can do. Rudy Gay was about to try to blow up the basket, and Manu could only cover his eyes and hope he’d survive the blast. Somehow, he lived to flop another day.

Normally I’d probably give this dunk a 7.5 (not a lot of contact, none up high), but I’m bumping it up to 8 for two reasons — the sheer fright that it inspired in Manu Ginobili, and the magnitude of the play. Having been watching the game live, I was actually fearful that the Fed Ex Forum was going to explode. In the words of the great Kevin Harlan, Rudy Gay SUCKED THE GRAVITY RIGHT OUT OF THE BUILDING!!! with this one.

Honorable mentions to MarShon Brooks and Kenny Faried.
