Damian Lillard makes a poster with Nene in it (VIDEO)

Aren’t the best dunks when little guys throw it down over big guys?

In that vein, we bring you Portland’s Damian Lillard getting up and throwing it down over the late-rotating Nene from Monday night. Lillard is athletic and aggressive, plus makes the kind of decision you see from a guy who spent four years in college not just one. (Not that all his decisions are perfect, they just are generally more mature than guys three years his junior.)

It wasn’t enough. The Wizards got the win because you can’t stop Jordan Crawford from 30 feet out.

      From the last dribble (the point where the ball comes back up to his hands) he only takes two steps. The third step you are counting comes when the ball is in the air coming back up, that’s legal

    Indeed, the best dunks are made by the little guys. That’s one of the reasons why Allen Iverson was so fun to watch.
