My Top 10 Dunkers in the NBA Today
1) LeBron James
LBJ is freak athlete who dunks with both power and finesse. Defenders scatter when he drives to the rack.
2) Dwight Howard
Everyone gets out of the way when he gets the ball in deep post position.
3) Dwyane Wade
Just ask Anderson Varejao how he feels after getting absolutely embarrassed by my man D-Wade. Check out Wade’s dunk over Varejao @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSA_Di2vliU
4) Josh Smith
He takes off from basically anywhere on the floor and seemingly glides through the air.
5) Andre Iguodala
In my opinion Iggy is one of the most under-appreciated dunkers in the game. He lives over the rim.
6) Kobe Bryant
Kobe loves to create dunks while soaring through the air, especially when he drives baseline.
7) Amare Stoudemire
He’s a center, but he throws down acrobatic dunks like a guard.
8) Rudy Gay
Gay has great body control in the air and can each jump over defenders or finesse his way around them.
9) Vince Carter
While Vince’s best days are behind him, he still holds his own with the rest of the young dunkers. His style is unique and he is a great innovator.
10) Trevor Ariza
Ariza soars through the air and isn’t afraid to challenge the trees inside, mostly because he dunks right over them.
Honorable Mention: Shannon Brown, Jason Richardson, Jason Maxiell, Nate Robinson, Kevin Garnett, J.R. Smith, Jamario Moon, Shawn Marion
