Let me first state that I'm a Houston Rockets fan and not a homer. I am just curious as to why this is the first I've seen for Paul Pierce's dunk on the Raptors the other night. First off it was Paul Pierce and second it was a dunk, you don't usually get to put those two in the same sentence. He pulled it back and threw it down over 2 defenders. Does everyone just hate on Pierce because of the wheel chair stunt still?

It was nice but I can think of about 5 Griffin dunks off the top of my head that are better.

I could take a pick of any of BG's top 5 dunks and they'd all be better than that one...

It was a sick dunk but not dunk of the year.

I'm a Raptors fan and I hate PP with a passion but the dunk was nasty. I love Blake Griffen as much as the other guy but if he did that exact dunk everyone would be gaga over it. Not saying it's dunk of the year but it was nasty and thread worthy(if it had a link)

Melo had a dunk last year that looked almost exactly the same, not quite as good but similar. Great dunk by Paul Pierce but no DotY.

because he would have been a foot higher off the ground.

I thought it was a nice dunk, but dunk of the year? I don't think so.

This. At 35sec, holy **** that young man is just a ****ing beast. Pierce's dunk was nice but only Blake will top Blake.

nice dunk but not good enough to beat blake griffin's dunks. griffin's dunks are so many and way better, people will have a hard time to choose which one of his will be the dunk of the year.

I'm a hardcore Celtics fan and PP is my favorite player, it was a great dunk but dunks by Blake Griffin for example dwarf what he did, but it was indeed a great dunk and got me off my feet.

Blake's dunk on Mozgov...nuff said.

This dunk is deserving of more credit than people are currently giving it. That dunk was ****ing nasty.

Amazing dunk. One of the absolute bests of the year. I like it more than Derozan's.

Didn't know The Truth still had that in him.

I am a Raptor fan, I thought that dunk was sick.
However not dunk of the year. Blake Griffin and Derozan are better

omg go cry and go home son! paul pierce just dunked on you're sorry self!

It was nice..but did PP even actually dunk it, or was it just like Griffins over Mosgov where he threw the ball in the basket?

HoopsDrive
01-04-2011, 01:27 AM
Looked like he just threw that **** in the hoop, akin to what Howard did in the dunk contest. Yeah, that fake Superman "dunk."

Anyways, good dunk but not DOTY worthy. It felt like it was done in slow-motion... barely any speed in that compared to BG's dunks.

Nice "dunk" for PP but Blake Griffen still has my vote

sargon21
01-04-2011, 02:28 AM
no, he dunked it, he did not just throw it in

I'm not a fan of Paul P but not a bad dunk. Still I'm going with either JR Smith or Blake, There dunks where crazy

It was nice, but no way is it dunk of the year. Blake has had a nimber of better dunks and J.R smith has a better one as well. I think you may have just been suprised because it was paul pierce who is not known for his dunking ability.

Not a bad dunk by any means, but no where CLOSE to dunk of the year status.

For Pierce, it's an amazing dunk. He's gotten in so much better shape this year, and it's really showing on the court. He lost a good amount of weight in the off-season, and totally restructured his diet.

He's playing as well as he's ever played in his career...Whatever he's eating, he better keep it up.

Which makes me want to make a point. That was a big, game changing sorta dunk. While griffens are disgusting, being on the Clippers make them worth nothing.

I didn't paul pierce dunks. Kinda surprise he didn't flop after the dunk. Decent dunk nonetheless...

Derozan's dunk was better :laugh2:

Also I will not be surprised if 3-5 of the top 5 of the yr go to Blake Griffen. His dunk over Mozgov (technically a throw in) and his dunk on Gallo have yet to be beaten.

this dunk will not make the top 10 of the 2010-11 season.

JR Smiths was Dunk of the Year.
