【收藏】Top 10 Dunkers Today

Don't look away when these high-fliers take the court. They can all get up, stay up and get the crowd up with their aerial supremacy. Every basketball fan has their favorite dunker. Some prefer players who dunk with raw power, some prefer players who dunk with balletic grace and some prefer a little bit of everything. After pouring over hours of footage and debating the merits of the tomahawk versus the reverse versus the alley-oop among other things, we've arrived at the following list of our favorite dunkers in the L today. We understand our top 10 might not be your top 10, and gladly invite your comments... By #2, #4 and #6.
Defining Dunk: In a game against Sacramento several seasons ago, KG flew from the middle of the lane and threw in a crazy, one-handed tip dunk which the disbelieving announcer described as "special effects."
KG on his dunking frequency: "It's like a volcano. You never know when I'm going to explode."
Defining Dunk: Mase's two-handed kiss-the-rim dunk from the '01 dunk contest is a highlight-reel regular, but many people remember the two games during the '00-01 season he sent into overtime with last-second left-handed tip dunks. Ridiculousness.
What the League is saying: "He can fly. It must be nice to know how to jump like that."
LeBron James threw down this dunk in his first regular season game against the Sacramento Kings.
Defining Dunk: In his first regular season game, LBJ took a steal at midcourt and elevated for a unique, Statue-of-Libertyesque one-handed throwdown that we would go on to see several times during the season. But we're waiting for his signature dunk to evolve ...
LBJ begs to differ: "My most memorable dunk was back in the 8th grade at Readinger Middle School, during a teachers vs. students game. I threw it down hard."
Defining Dunk: Then-teammate Stephon Marbury ran a pick-and-roll with Amaré, delivered a perfect bounce pass to a cutting Stoudemire who caught it in stride and had only Olowokandi between him and the basket. Guess who caught the wrong end of the play? Steph's facial expression afterwards was almost as good as Stoudemire's dunk.
Amaré's disagrees with us: "I'm going to go with myself at No. 2. I think my dunk style, with my body English in the air, is pretty unique. And also I bring the power when I do go up to dunk."
Defining Dunk: In the '00 contest, Stevie bounced it, caught it, double-clutched it and reversed it home, his head at rim level.
On Cuttino Mobley's Alley-oops: "I always know when Cat's going to throw an alley-oop. He looks away when he's dribbling, puts it up there, and I just go get it."
Jason Richardson's best dunk came during NBA All-Star 2004, but he failed to win his third dunk title.
Andrew D. Bernstein
Defining Dunk: Ironically enough, Richardson's best dunk came in the contest he didn't win: '04 in L.A. With a similar approach to his previous dunks, he ooped it to himself, caught it, took it under his left leg and slammed it left-handed -- sending the crowd into a tizzy.
J-Rich on dunk creativity: "You have to think of a different way to separate your dunk from other dunks. Like the dunk I did [in Atlanta]. Everybody knew J.R. Rider did the between-the-legs dunk, so I just switched it around and went behind my legs."
Defining Dunk: We were there. All-Star Game 2002 in Philly. About 10-rows behind baseline. McGrady drove upcourt, flipped the ball up with his left hand off glass, weaved mid-air through the West and threw it down with his right hand. Hard.
T-Mac on dunking: "Elevation. Creativity. First of all, you've got to get up high enough to put the ball in. Second of all, you've got to have some style with your dunk. You can't be plain. You've got to have some type of creativity because that's what people want to see. That's what describes your personality, the type of person you are."
Defining Dunk: His nastiest number came in '02-03. Flying up court, he took it strong and full-speed to the rack, with then-Mavs guard Steve Nash waiting underneath in search of a charge. We don't actually remember whether or not he got it, but we're thinking Nash still has a bump on his forehead from Davis' knee.
Ricky's keys to dunking: "The key element is to be able to dunk when the light's on -- you know, dunking on people, finishing, keeping the attitude of dunking."
Kobe Bryant took flight during The Finals in June 2004 against the Detroit Pistons.
Andrew D. Bernstein
Defining Dunk: The downright ugly baseline facial he gave Yao Ming in February 2003.
What Kobe's teammate thinks: "If someone's dominating the middle, Kobe will come over and say, 'Next time I get in the lane I'm going to dunk on that person.' And most of the time he'll make it happen."
Defining Dunk: Our favorites are from the 2000 dunk contest -- pick one -- and, of course, Carter's leapfrog throwdown over France's 7-2 center Frederic Weis in the '00 Olympics
What the League is saying: "People never thought they'd see anybody jump higher or better than Jordan or Dr. J, or Dominique. Jordan and all those guys were some great dunkers, don't get me wrong, but you can't compare them to Vince."
