    Robert Carter Jr. Goes Down Hard After a Dunk (Video)

    Some people don’t mind a little showboating in sports. Other people can’t stand it. But one thing I think we can all agree on is that, if nothing else, showboating has a time and place. For example, if your basketball team is playing a far superior opponent, in their gym, on national television, and you’ve […]

    J.R. Smith’s Ridiculous Reverse Alley-Oop Dunk (Video)

    J.R. Smith is such a mercurial player. When he’s acting up–which is the case more often than not–you begin to wonder how this clown is still in the NBA.  But when he’s good, he’s really good. Last night against the San Antonio Spurs, Smith showed flashes of the latter.  The best example was this insane […]

    High School Sophomore Victor Dukes Throws Down a Ridiculous Dunk (Video)

    What’s worse than getting posterized? How about getting posterized by a high school sophomore while you get kicked in the face for good measure. That’s what happened to a player from Manila High School in Arkansas when his team faced Victor Dukes and intrastate rival Nettleton High School in a 2012 NEA Tournament game. Dukes, […]

    Oregon Commit Jordan Bell Breaks Rim with Windmill Dunk (Video)

    The people at the University of Oregon may want to install some stronger rims at Matthew Knight Arena before next season begins, because if the video below is any indication, the rims they currently have installed may not stand much of a chance once Jordan Bell joins the team. Bell is one of the Ducks’ […]

    Guy Tries To Dunk Over a Basketball Rack, Fails Miserably (Video)

    Every generation, it seems, a basketball players comes along who possesses legendary leaping abilities which he uses to give the world epic dunks. In the late 90s and early 2000s, that player was undoubtedly Vince Carter. He gave us what was possibly the greatest in-game dunk of all time at the 2000 Summer Olympics. Today, […]

    Golden Gophers’ Rodney Williams Gives Us This Ridiculous Putback Dunk (Video)

    The Minnesota Golden Gophers aren’t really a college basketball powerhouse. In the last 20 years they’ve only made seven appearances in the NCAA Tournament, but four of those seasons (1994-1999) were later forfeited due to NCAA violations, and their most recent appearance came in 2010. However, the Gophers are looking pretty strong this year. They’re […]

    Tim Duncan Posterized Serge Ibaka Last Night (Video)

    An impressive stat line wasn’t the only thing Tim Duncan was putting together last night.  The Spurs’ forward was also creating a picture-perfect poster image, thanks to some help from the Thunder’s Serge Ibaka. Ibaka led the NBA in blocks last season with a whopping 241 (an average of 3.65 blocks per game), and with […]

    During the second quarter of yesterday’s preseason game between the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers, Jeremy Evans provided spectators with what will undoubtedly go down as the greatest 10-second sequence of the 2012 NBA preseason.  In fact, this brilliant energetic burst from the high-flying Jazz forward may in fact go down as the […]

    Watch 5’5″ Porter Maberry Perform An Incredible Eastbay Dunk (Video)

    Just because you’re short, that doesn’t mean you can’t be a good basketball player. We learned that a few weeks ago from a guy named Jamani Swanson. However, if you’re particularly short, that does usually preclude the possibility of performing highlight reel dunks. Of course, there are exceptions to this. Spud Webb, for example, was […]

    Here Is The Craziest Dunk You Will See All Summer (Video)

    Unless someone on the USA Men’s Olympic Basketball Team can bring back memories of Vince Carter’s epic dunk over a 7’2″ Frenchman at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, we may have already been treated to the best dunk of the 2012 summer, and it comes courtesy of some dude named Angelo Sharpless. The 6’4″ guard from […]

    Watch LeBron James Miss A Wide Open Dunk (Video)

    Like most people, we love making fun of the Miami Heat.  From their flopping antics to their questionable choices of attire, they always seem to give us something to laugh (at them, not with them) about.  However, with Miami seemingly destined to reach their second NBA Finals in a row after taking a 2-0 lead […]

    Fat Man Provides Epic Fail During Halftime Dunk Attempt (GIF)

    The Atlanta Hawks weren’t the only ones having trouble taking flight during their Game 2 loss to the Boston Celtics at Phillips Arena on Tuesday.  This fat fan was also experiencing similar difficulties, as his halftime trampoline dunk turned into an epic failure when he came up several feet short of the rim and face-planted […]

    Knicks’ J.R. Smith Throws Down Ridiculous Dunk In Losing Effort (Video)

    With over nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of last night’s Eastern Conference Quarterfinal battle between the New York Knicks and the Miami Heat, Knicks guard J.R. Smith provided us with the “highlight of the night,” as he cut threw the Heat defense and threw down a vicious double-pump slam.  Unfortunately, that basket was […]
