Which one of the following players would you crown the best in game dunker of all times. All of these players have great highlights but there can only be one who can be considered the G.O.A.T.

Lebron James is the best I have ever seen at taking it to the hole and finishing it.

Kemp was amazing and threw down with ultimate authority. The Human Highlight Film (Dominique Wilkins) is definitely top 3 all time. But looking back at some of the most amazing dunks ever, Vince Carter has done some sick ____.

Vince Carter is just ridiculous, off the backboard windmill is the most ridiculous thing ever.

Vince, Lebron, Kemp or Smith. I choose Vince.

Jordan's dunks were more graceful than power. But I like more power but still be able to glide in the air in my dunks.

Not only does Vince Carter fill the highlight reel with crazy 360 jams, but what about the time he jumped over the 7-footer in the Olympics and posterized him? Case Closed

its either m.j, v.c, kemp, wilkins or dr. j

I hate to say it but its gotta be VC

Shady66
08-27-2009, 02:33 PM
i would say Dr. J, look some up on youtube, considering he has many more but are lost. He also did the best dunk ever in game ( Rock the cradle baby)

Ace33Bone
08-27-2009, 02:39 PM
I would have this as my order
Kemp
Dominique
Vince
Jordan
LeBron

I am actually surprised that Vince is running away with this poll. I thought that it would have been a bit closer... but I mean the dude definitely had some sick dunks

I think that may be a bit of a stretch. I think it looks amazing because whenever they show it, they slow it down so it looks like he's soaring. I think Vince has 3-4 in game dunks that are better than that. Atheletes over time have only become better and will continue to. I think the list is probably close to, or does go in cronological order according to whe they played.

kobe24>lebron23
08-27-2009, 03:18 PM
best in game dunker of all time is vincanity but how does kobe have just one vote and how does lebron have 7 votes and Darryl Dawkins and josh smith have the same votes as kobe...seriously did you people start watching basketball two years ago i mean kobe dunked way better then lebron when he was in his prime(he still is even though he's not as athletic)... check the highlights

NJrockPD
08-27-2009, 03:20 PM
When you say "best" I am assuming you mean the most flashy. The way Jordan just flew over people was amazing, LBJ throws it down hard, Kemp is classic, but Air Canada was an incredible showman. Vincanity was using dunk contest slams in games on a nightly basis, so he gets my vote.

I know someone brought it up but here's a good one from vince

people forget about kobe's dunks

his 360s when he was younger, and the occasional one nowadays on a break away steal. Kobe "What Did I Just See??" behind the back reverse dunk in one motion against the Nuggets Vincent Yarborough. Kobe's facial on Dwight. Kobe's facial on Big Ben in the preseason. Kobe MSG baseline windmill dunk on Sprewell, Kobe's same dunk on the T'wolves in the 1st rd of the playoffs in that same season, Kobe "superman" type dunk in game 2 of the 1st rd 08 playoffs against nuggets, kobe's numerous dunks as a youngster on Sabonis, Kobe's double pump reverse jam against the hornets last season, kobe's facial over nash in the 06 1st rd playoffs, kobe's dunk over Yao in 02-03 season, shaw to kobe alleyhoop in a regular season game against the Phili 76ers at Staples back in 2000 (Kobe jumps from one side of the basket to the other side in mid air, catches it with one hand, and the jam and one) :)

Considering VC gives a facial on a daily basis, and pulls off dunk contest dunks in GAME TIME, he wins.

:confused: circa 2006-2007??? havent seen much from the guy except bricking jumpshot after jumpshot in his last 2 seasons with the nets. in fact, the last 1 1/2 yrs, it's been the devin harris show. Vince has been like 20 ppg scorer shooting in the low 40% from the field

It has to be Vince. Back in the day he was the best with combining creativity with power and flash. Kemp was IMO, the greatest power dunker of all time. Creativity wise, I have to go with Kobe, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mwL8MgIDw4 , nuff said. And then theres Jordan, who use to take off like he was leaving with a boarding pass.

Jordan, Carter, or Lebron. VC jumped over that dude in the olympics.

I like Josh Smith and Tyrus Thomas as up and comers, both are 6'9 with huge verticals and look to dunk at every opportunity.

We are all a part of a different generation now. Honestly, even though I voted for VC, Shawn Kemp had some SERIOUS jams back in the 90's and even Domninque b4 him soooo...

lexworld2009
08-28-2009, 09:47 AM
top 5 all time : Wilkins, Dr.J, MJ, Vince & kemp simple as that all 5 of these did it with flair and power , and anyone that didn't think mike did it with power jus watch his highlights and see he banged on people hard, I mean u can throw any big man in the convo , but to me that a little for them...

lexworld2009

Vince Carter is the best dunker of all time.
The things he did in that Raptors jersey was unbelieveable.
Jumping over the 7 footer while chasing gold doesn't make a bad case for him either,

lexworld2009
08-28-2009, 09:57 AM
for anyone that has bron in the top 5 , u have to go and throw barkley in there cuz bron is just the power dunk and @ that he didn't better than barkley, dawkins, or shaq for that matter ahhhhhhh the young generation of hoop fans are so hard pressed to crown the jester so early....take a glance at the past 20 yrs. and honestly bron ain't even in the top 10 of in game dunkers, there have been way better dunkers than him...but I guess to each their own...

This is tough for me, especially being a bulls fan that grew up in the 1990's. I really wanna say MJ, but that would be the homer in me, the best in-game dunks i have ever seen, probably go in this order.
1. Dominique Wilkins
2. Vince Carter
3. Michael Jordan
4. Dr. J
5. Lebron James

So my vote goes to the human highlight reel, known as dominique wilkins

Dwight broke the shotclock, Shaq broke the backboard and brought the whole net down another time, doesn't make them the best in game dunkers.

Ace33Bone
08-28-2009, 12:46 PM
But Darryl Dawkins actually had some flare to his dunks... I am not saying that he is a great dunker just because he broke the backboard hell Bryant "Big Country" Reeves and Darvin Ham both broke the backboard in college. I was just stating that people underrate his in game dunks... but not by any means do I think he is the best on the list

Raph12
08-28-2009, 12:52 PM
Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't you say "I think it is safe to say he is the only one that has accomplished this feat"? That's why I assumed he was the only guy you knew that did that.

Btw Darryl Dawkins would be in the conversation if it was a top 20 list, not the best dunker in the game.

It's funny how Dr. J is forgotten in this. There is a generation bias on here with the poll. There maybe people too young to remember how nasty some of those dunkers are. I wont put lebron over Dr.J followed by Dominique, and Shawn Kemp. Shawn Kemp straight up clowned ppl when he dunked in game. Lebron does his cheesey sledgehammer dunk pretty much when he's open. I dont remember the last time I seen him straight dunk on somebody. Last dunk like that he was involved in he was on the receiving end and it was a high schooler. Kobe also has some nasty in game dunks when he was young.
