  1. Video: Paul George did what, now?

    Aug 25, 2012, 9:41 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    So that’s Paul George of the Indiana Pacers going through-the-legs-360. Which is nice, for all of us, really. I’d also like to point out LeBron who was also on this trip to Shanghai going nuts for George. This is today’s reminder that all of those rivalries you think are significant and meaningful are really the…

  2. Video: Cal State Bernadino’s Kwame Alexander can basically fly

    Feb 14, 2012, 5:54 PM EDT

    Kwame Alexander

    Yes, this is from college basketball. D-2 college basketball, in fact. But it’s so cool we don’t care. This video contains Cal State Bernadino’s Kwame Alexander, who weighs 240 pounds, taking off from a step or two inside the free throw line, getting his body nearly parallel to the floor, and somehow throwing down over…

    The Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown has been working its way across the country this spring and into the summer, with some of the best amateur dunkers in the nation putting on a real show. Because you will not get to see some fun competition and highlight dunks from Summer League this year — thank you…

  4. Video: Best dunks of the conference finals

    May 30, 2011, 5:38 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Two

    What’s going to help you get through the end of Memorial Day weekend? Dunks. Big dunks in big games. With that in mind we present for your entertainment the best dunks of the NBA conference finals. Dunks that changed games or just rocked rims. Something to look forward to with the NBA finals starting Tuesday…

  5. Video: The top 10 dunks in January

    Feb 2, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Baby, it’s cold outside. To warm you up a little on this winter day we can’t offer a nice bowl of chicken noodle soup, but we can offer dunks. Ten of them. The best from January. Yes, you can be sure Blake Griffin makes an appearance on the list.

  6. Blake Griffin and the greatest missed dunk ever

    Jan 30, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    We’ve seen a lot of great highlights from Blake Griffin. But last night we dodged a bullet. Had Blake Griffin nailed this one, it would have been devastating to the game of basketball. Every dunk from then after would have been a disappointment. No alley-oop would ever match it. We’d just be going through the…

  7. You’ll never believe it, but Blake Griffin had a big dunk

    Jan 23, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Once upon a time, there was a man. Okay, I don’t think that’s verifiable at this point.  All of our evidence seems to suggest he’s somehow more than a man. Some sort of part-man, part-robot, part-beast combination. A man-beast-bot. Anyway, he did something insane that involved jumping again last night. Observe. That’s a tasty meatball.…

  8. Andrew Bynum dunks on Amar’e Stoudemire

    Jan 10, 2011, 8:13 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum, Leon Wood

    Andrew Bynum was back Sunday, playing his best game since this summer’s knee surgery. Of course it was against the Knicks, who didn’t have the bodies to contain him. The only guy who could stop Bynum from adding to  his 18 point total was referee Leon Wood, who had a quick trigger and ejected him.…

  9. Video: J.R. Smith’s vicious two-hand dunk

    Dec 17, 2010, 8:50 AM EDT

    J.R. Smith

    The Spurs players end up on a lot of posters because they try to take the charge — and it won them the game last night. But rookie Gary Neal, he’s just in a poster. This was as insane and powerful a dunk as you are going to see. Just put this on a loop…

  10. Video to start your week — Top 10 Dunks of November

    Is there a better way to start your week than that cup of coffee and videos of Andre Iguodala, Blake Griffin and Russell Westbrook making posters? No, of course there isn’t. We’ll, unless you’ve got a nice bagel to go with it. Either way, enjoy.

  11. Eric Gordon makes a poster with Tim Duncan in it

    We’re telling you, these Clippers are a lot of fun to watch. They easily won the highlight battle against the Spurs last night. We also told you that is very different than winning the game, the Clips are not there yet. Especially not against the Spurs who have beat them 17 of the last 18…

  12. Dunktastic: Jrue Holiday over Anthony Randolph

    Oct 21, 2010, 1:34 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday is quick with the ball. The Knicks Anthony Randolph can be a bit slow on defensive recognition and rotations. Combine those two and you have a dunk that Randolph will be reminded of for a while, preseason game or not. Oh, and don’t sleep on Holiday people, he can flat out ball. (Man…

  13. Dunk more, win more games. It’s that simple.

    Oct 20, 2010, 5:40 PM EDT

    Image (1) Brown_dunk-thumb-250x166-11742.jpg for post 1998

    We love watching dunks in games because, well, that’s what we wish we could do. It’s exciting. Shannon Brown throwing it down in a game is way better than Shannon Brown in the dunk context. According to the Harvard Sports Analysis Collective (via Slam) dunks are also good strategy if you want to win games.…
