This Dunk Contest Is Extremely Good Shit

This Dunk Contest Is Extremely Good Shit

The thing about dunk contests is that they are always better when the participants are amateur ballers, because instead of worrying about things like defensive rotations and jump shooting, they can just sit around and think up awesome dunks all day.

The participants here are Guy Dupuy and Jordan Kilganon , two dudes who have carved out a niche as two of the best highlight dunkers on...

A Pelicans Rookie Had The Best Dunk Of Summer League And It Was Not Zion Williamson

A Pelicans Rookie Had The Best Dunk Of Summer League And It Was Not Zion Williamson

Monday night in Las Vegas, New Orleans Pelicans rookie center Jaxson Hayes caught a nifty wraparound pass on a side pick-and-roll and dunked someone named Mychal Mulder into The Further.

It is honestly a deeply unfair turn of events for a relatively anonymous summer league guard to wind up in this kind of crushing highlight. Out of respect for poor Mulder, who suffered dearly for...

The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Masterpiece Of Humiliation

The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Masterpiece Of Humiliation

In a few short seconds, the kid defending the hoop in this clip learned a few important lessons about basketball. If you’re going to jump, really jump; if your opponent is palming the ball on you with a full head of steam, know they are trying to expose you; and finally, make sure to be aware of your surroundings, lest you get dunked on, pushed through a door, and filmed by your cackling...

Jeff Green Dunk Annihilates Entire Nation

Jeff Green Dunk Annihilates Entire Nation

Jeff Green threw down a dunk during tonight’s game against the Wizards that certainly shook anyone and everything associated with Washington, D.C. that we should expect to awake tomorrow to pure and unadulterated anarchy.

Kawhi Leonard Just Dunks The Absolute Hell Out Of The 76ers

Kawhi Leonard Just Dunks The Absolute Hell Out Of The 76ers

Kawhi Leonard is doing it again . He put up a 13-and-10 double-double before halftime of Game 5 of the 76ers-Raptors conference semifinal series, with three assists and a pair of steals. It’s not clear tonight that the Raptors even require all these damn heroics—they’re up 21 at the half and the Sixers look extremely...

Everyone Was Delighted By This Poster Dunk That Ended In A Piggy-Back Ride

Everyone Was Delighted By This Poster Dunk That Ended In A Piggy-Back Ride

Nobody likes getting dunked on, but sometimes a posterization is so good that even the poor sap on the receiving end can’t help but smile.

That’s exactly what happened during a game between University of the Incarnate Word and Houston Baptist, in which Incarnate Word sophomore Shawn Johnson threw one down on HBU’s Asa Cantwell, and then got himself a piggy-back ride from his victim.

Alex Caruso's Putback Dunk Forces LeBron To Learn Another Teammate's Name

Alex Caruso's Putback Dunk Forces LeBron To Learn Another Teammate's Name

Since the Lakers were eliminated from playoff contention and have shelved LeBron James , there’s nothing left for the healthy part of the team’s roster to do but maybe show off and hopefully convince the unofficial player-GM to keep them around next season. (Or, alternately, they could show off then escape to a more functional organization.) Lakers guard Alex Caruso took Thursday’s game...

Tuesday night Jeff Green was on the very wrong end of a highlight when he stumbled brutally in isolation defense while guarding Lance Stephenson in a Wizards loss to the Lakers. Green may have been unfairly victimized by Stephenson accidentally stepping on his toes mid-sequence, but that will not make Green feel...

If there’s ever a time to go for a ridiculous dunk in traffic, a 30-point blowout is it. Even if you miss, most people have either changed the channel or are content watching the basketball equivalent of an NPR talk show: background noise that don’t mean much of anything. But last night the Magic’s Terrence Ross woke...

Tonight is apparently a good night for bouncy young dudes on horrendous Eastern Conference cellar-dwellers to rise up and violently jam on someone whose season hasn’t already ended. First we had Kevin Knox posterizing the hell out of Ben Simmons , and now we’ve got Marquese Chriss of the Cavaliers thundering home a...

Kevin Knox's Dunk On Ben Simmons Left DeAndre Jordan Stupefied

Kevin Knox's Dunk On Ben Simmons Left DeAndre Jordan Stupefied

The Knicks as a franchise have completely packed it in for the rest of the season, but the electrifying rookie Kevin Knox has yet to get the tanking memo. In the second quarter of New York’s likely eventual loss against the 76ers, Knox took a bounce pass in stride from DeAndre Jordan as he sped into the lane and slammed a thunderous dunk right on Ben Simmons, sending the young Aussie down...

Do not watch tonight’s Knicks-Cavaliers game. The Knicks have lost 16 straight and a disgusting 24 of their last 25 games; the Cavs have lost 22 of their last 25 and have the worst net rating in the NBA. Neither organization exactly wants to win this game , and given the quality of the basketball product on display,...

Zion Williamson Likes To Spend Time Watching Naruto With His Mom

Zion Williamson Likes To Spend Time Watching Naruto With His Mom

In the dying minutes of Duke’s 91-61 drubbing of St. John’s, ESPN’s Allison Williams took the time to speak to the mom of Blue Devils standout Zion Williamson, Sharonda Sampson. The interview went through an expected array of topics—Williamson’s burning desire to win, the athleticism he had as a child and whether he’s been able to remain humble while in the national spotlight—but resulted in a...

Miles Bridges Can Really Dunk The Shit Out Of The Ball

Miles Bridges Can Really Dunk The Shit Out Of The Ball

Hornets rookie Miles Bridges helped his team to a comfortable win over the Kings last night, with 15 points and some strong defense off the bench. Neither of those contributions, nice as they are, matter nearly as much as this absolute hammer he dropped as the shot clock was expiring in the first quarter.

As the suddenness of his explosion to the rim makes clear, Bridges is a power dunker,...

JaMychal Green Wrecks Ersan Ilyasova And His Wasted Theatrics With A Thunderous Dunk

JaMychal Green Wrecks Ersan Ilyasova And His Wasted Theatrics With A Thunderous Dunk

The Memphis Grizzlies were never really in their Wednesday night loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, falling behind by double digits in the first quarter, later trailing by 31 points, and eventually yanking their starters at around the 25-minute threshold. The only positives to take away from the game, for Memphis, were small moral victories, like JaMychal Green dunking a flopping Ersan Ilyasova...

The Celtics are playing in a pretty big game against the Raptors right now, and Marcus Smart added two points for his team and a ton of humiliation for his opponents on a “dunk” that ended with the guard landing a forearm drop on a hurt Kyle Lowry.

Lowry went down under the basket earlier in the possession, as a...
