Got to go with Bryant. His dunks are so damn ferocious. MJ was graceful and finesse. Kobe can do both.

LOL at the disrespect LeBron is getting for his dunks. IMO, he's easily one of the top 5 dunkers of All-Time (in game).

Just give it a couple of more years and have nostalgia + accumulation of dunks/records.

Pretty sure I said in game.

High school LeBron (McDonalds Slam Dunk winner in 2003 vs Shannon Brown and others) would beat 18 year old Kobe (who won in a weak NBA dunk contest) in a dunk off, 1on1 or anything really (minus chucking contest).

And J Rich is definitely not one of the great in game dunkers. Put the pipe down.

Same Shannon Brown that missed a couple of dunks in the NBA dunk contest?

He asked Kobe to coach him too. Brown just couldn't pull off some of those Kobe dunks.

People talking about "ferocious" need to understand that the rims were built differently back then. There's pre-Shaq rims and after-Shaq rims.

Rims had to be constructed differently after Shaq started to demolish them, they had that extra spring that allowed them to bend more, thus giving the illusion that a dunk was more powerful.

So while some of today's dunks may 'look' more powerful, there's no way one can honestly say that they actually were.

if anything dunkers from every era dunk just as hard, because well… they kinda had too for the most part.

I also think that Kobe's may appear to be more ferious for some is due to him not getting high off the ground. Players like VC and Mj simply soared over their defenders, so when they came down they were higher off the rim. Kobe wasn't as high so that pressure came off differently (not sure if I explained myself properly, I hope it makes sense for some of you).

ya'll know who I take.

The player that's had the most 'difficult' dunks to pull off.

Every player can dunk on other players, Kobe can't take off from the distance, angle, off the dribble without having to gather himself (aka seamless) like Mj. Kobe has to gather himself for most of his dunks, he simply can't dunk from the same distance, angles, and motion that MJ could.

One can base their decision on 'aesthetic' reasons, that's fine. But Mj is the better technical dunker when it comes to what I mentioned.

I think that's probably why he's a better dunker. He improvises better in the moment.

VC got it by a country mile because he is the unquestioned #1.
