Greatest Dunker (In Game & Competition)

Thoughts?

My vote was for Vince Carter. He carried things he did in contest to games, and became a MASTER of the windmill. He made it look far too effortless. His 360s weren't too shabby either. He dunked on people as well as anyone (even jumping over people....)

I included LeBron in the poll, even though I know he hasn't done a contest. His in-game dunks are crazy, though.


For entertainment value, if you can (and want to), provide some video "evidence" to try to support your vote or opinion.

I'd say this one covers my vote...

My bad, man. You clearly answered before I posted the poll. Wanted to include David Thompson, but I didn't think his in-game body of work held up to everyone else's.
and I've never seen much footage of "The Hawk" dunking.

Re: Greatest Dunker (In Game & Competition)

That list is too limited to just popular guys. There are many guys in the history of the league that dunked in games on competition.

Charles Barkley
Kenny Smith
Larry Nance
Kevin Johnson's Dunk on Olajuwon in the Playoffs is my GOAT.

"In the 60s there wasElgin Baylor and Wilt Chamberlain; in the 70s the dunk was revolutionized by Julius Erving, David Thompson and Connie Hawkins; in the 80s Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins lead the show along with Darrel Griffith, Clyde Drexler and Spud Webb; in the 90s Mike was still wowing fans, but so was Dee Brown, Shawn Kemp and Kevin Johnson; and in the new millennium the likes of Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwight Howard and Nate Robison have delighted, providing numerous highlight moments."

Do you remember Darnell "Dr. Dunkenstein" Hillman(from the Pacers)?

Of course we can't forget 'Chocolate Thunder'.

Yeah Vince Carter hands down when I think of both in game dunks and the dunk competition it's not even close atleast in my mind.
