Nothing goes together like fashion and dunks. Well… maybe chocolate and peanut butter, but that’s it.

Which is why a new photo spread in the pages of GQ goes so well together.

NBA players Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Andre Iguodala, JaVale McGee and Shannon Brown talk dunks and get their pictures taken dunking in suits. Which might be the next barrier to break at the Dunk Contest. Plus there is a fantastic article from Free Darko himself Bethlehem Shoals.

Here are our two favorite dunk quotes from the spread:

“If you’re just dunking by yourself, it’s really nothing special. You have to dunk on someone—then you feel like you’re demoralizing them.”
—JaVale McGee

“When I dunk, I’m in the air for a while, almost in a daze or a trance. I embrace the moment and let everyone take their pictures.”
—Andre Iguodala
