Default Harrison Barnes over Pekovic >>> Lebron and Deandre's dunks

And it's not even that close imo.

I fail to see how Jordan's dunk is being talked about as some all time great dunk. He dunked on some dude that is a foot shorter than him. What's the big deal? It was still a cool dunk, but it's not an all time great dunk like some people are saying. Same kind of thing with Lebron dunking over Terry. The size differential is massive. Also, both guys just caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Neither of them even attempted to contest the dunk.

Barnes dunked on a 7 foot, 270 pound center that actually tried to contest him. That's a lot more impressive if you ask me.

I agree. I like how Barnes jumped from clearly outside of the circle and still was able to get high/far enough to actually dunk it and not just throw the ball in the hoop

Yup Barnes's dunk was far more impressive than the other two.



I think people just like seeing alley oops, and people falling over.

Yeah agree too, I feel like Knight was trying to break up the lob and just got caught. Pek was straight up contesting a dunk and Barnes smashed all over him.

True that. Plus, Barnes didnt have to use his off hand to create space. Dude just destroyed it. Maybe we need to have dunk contests with a volunteer to block the shots if they could.
