It's a very basic dunk, made to look good by the rim hang.

Durant's much higher difficulty.

Pretty much this. I'm not sure of any other players in the league that would have been able to complete Durant's dunk. Gortat is basically immovable and Durant still dunked on him for the dotted line due to his insane wingspan

I think you guys are underestimating how hard it is and the type of explosion it takes to jump straight up in the air and do a dunk like that. It's not like Tolliver wasn't in the picture. They were chest-to-chest in my screen shot. Taj just hung in the air so long Tolliver was gone by the time he completed his dropping of the hammer.

And plenty of guys can dunk on people from the dotted line. Not that it isn't impressive, but it happens every year.

It's dunking on one of the biggest players in the league, not just dunking from the dotted line. How many players can dunk on Gortat in that spot? You're never knocking him down backwards, so you're not able to dunk THROUGH him. Durant just dunks OVER him.

Had Durant made it all the way to the rim my decision may have been different. He kind of threw it in, which is cool, but not quite the same as if he'd made it all the way to the rim.

Gerald Wallace legitimately smashing on someone from the dotted line: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z75YO5QGsMM


Had Durant done THAT, he'd have won. Easily. 10/10.

Steve Francis, smaller than Durant, dunking on Jahidi White, heavier than Gortat, from the dotted line: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2F0XzDhZ-Q


I'm not trying to say what Durant did isn't impressive. But it's not like it's unprecedented.

i agree with gibson dunk as well. it's close because durant's was amazing too, but i love to see a player dunk on an opponent going straight up. the rim hang was class too. you can say that's after the fact or whatever, but i think it's part of the dunk and really adds some entertainment. definitely deserved 9/10, maybe 9.5 for me.

the dunk that first had me take note of this type of poster (and ok i've linked it before) was bosh on shelden williams. not the hugest of posters, but you can see how williams just frustrates bosh to the point where he has to lash out. love it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQ1kEfIdDoc

nice to see this thread still going strong, although not as much discussion as some previous years. and good luck with the blog.

Blake Griffin just collected a loose ball at the three-point line in transition and dunked the ball off two feet without dribbling.

As someone who plays around the basket and dunks, I can assure you its not difficult when you are 6'6+ to do that dunk.
He didn't just jump straight up, he 2 foot planted into it and powered up, which is his leaping style, and mine.

If it isn't difficult then why don't we see a dunk like this in every game?
