My favorite was also at a Midsummer's Night Magic game because I saw it in person (don't remember what year). Baron Davis threw it off the backboard from outside the three point line and then ran in and tomahawked it in traffic.

Not sure but probably that full court pass to Kobe that he catches, dribbles the ball around his back and then does a 360 dunk

this one

I think earlier than that (maybe he did it more than once). Maybe early 2000s when he still had the young legs.

Shaq's dunk over Dudley where he proceeds to swing his crotch into Dudley's face, then push him to the ground for getting too close to his crotch. The build up to the dunk was a good few minutes of delaying play because players kept getting in wrestling matches. Then they finally start play again and Shaq hits Dudley with the most disrespectful dunk of all time.

Dr. J over Coop. Chick with the call and fans lose their minds. Remember watching that one. And you didn't dunk on Coop because he got up.

Young Kobe destroying Ben Wallace in a meaningless Vegas preseason game. No game was meaningless for Kobe. Ruthless.

Every time one of these threads come up I answer the same way:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qnhjlEZdwo

I doubt anyone remembers this dunk and there isnt much to it, but the fact that David Robinson gets smacked in the head by the ball after Kobe yams it always makes my heart soar.

The nuts to the face by Kobe on Steve Nash, right after it was announced Steve Nash would be MVP.

I'm still pissed we blew that 3-1 series lead.

Kobe baptizing Dwight is up there.

Any list of greatest dunks of all time has to include Vince jumping over a 7' Frenchie.

Has to be Kobe impregnating Dwight's earhole in Orlando. That was just disrespectful.

easy one for me... Vince literally jumping over the french guy in the olympics.
Has there ever any other instance of a player jumping completely over another player in professional play?

Most vicious dunks by Kemp, Nique, Mike, Vince, Kobe (2003 season). Like those "coq-back" dunks. Sounds dirty because they ARE dirty.

The d0nk by Eddie at MIL in 97 (to the left) was an all-timer. Thanks to MEEEEE!!!1, there's video proof that it happened. IIIII'M the one whose personal Zapruder copy of that clip lingers on in about 25 different Youtube vids. A buncha hassas have since "borrowed" said clip in the futile attempt to be like me. Do you know what a hassa is, Dladi?

Dr. J had one all in Robert Parish's S that was amazing, but it was a clip from 81-2ish. Those don't usually get replayed. Anyway, Parish lined up to foul him and the REAL Julius simply moved the ball all the way behind his head in one motion in air while never touching it with the other hand and powered it over Chief, who rarely got dunked on that badly. His hands were so huge, he could pick it up off the dribble and palm it without touching it with the other. Even Jordan couldn't do that. And his shoulder was like Stretch Armstrong's. He could bring it back further than anyone I've ever seen including prime Vince.

Dislike Scott Pip, but his dunk and stand-over on Ewing in 94 was keepin it rail. Tru Warier Pat didn't appreciate that, for good reason. I felt sorry for Pat. He was a heart and soul player, but man, was he unlucky. One dunk he should've made was in the final secs of Gm 7 vs Indy in 1995. He made a layup that bounced straight off the heel and popped out. I still respek Patrick. Same reason I begrudgingly respect Johnny Stockton and Malone. They gave it their best shots.

Favorite Kobe dunk is his alley oop vs the 76ers in 2001 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weQjX42UyyY
Catches it on the other side of the rim....

I'd have to think about this more! But what comes to mind is a handful of Vince dunks from Toronto. Poetry in motion
