That's not a typo -- Carlos Delfino actually dunked on Kevin Durant. No, I did not mean to switch those names. It was Carlos Delfino doing the dunking and Kevin Durant getting posterized. Weird, right?

that was just nasty.
The stare down after it was just disrespectful.

I missed the play and was expecting a way bigger smash directly on KD based on the initial reactions. Good flush, somewhat weakly contested. A lil' disappointed.

More like dunked past Durant. He was already ahead of him and Durant didn't get a fair position. This is getting dunked on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCkU2fKK4_4

Not really a facial. He was ahead and Durant tried the chase down block.

A facial is what Durant did to Asik and Delfino later on in the 4th. NASTY!

Asik's better

You mean when Asik and Delfino step aside to avoid fouling? Give me a break. Delfino's dunk was closer to a facial than that dunk.

lmao - I see your username - but Delfino and Asik both definitely tried to block it - there were just 2 feet too low. Same deal when KD smashed it over Asik last game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKUOI91_B3Y

This is a much better dunk than Durant on Asik. Durant is 7'0" Delfino is 6'6". Durant is such an anorexic little *****.

04-30-2013, 03:26 AM
lol how the **** was Durant's dunk better than this? It's Delfino FFS, and he dunked it on Durant... AND got fouled! AND stared the anorexic ***** down!

It wasn't a facial, but it was a nice dunk against a guy much taller, much athletic, much longer, and much better. Damn

Exactly, Delfino is a 3 point shooter, I don't think anyone knew he could dunk. Hell Parsons put in AND1 over Ibaka was baller too.

Barely a poster but a great dunk bc of the moment. For people saying Durant was behind, are you blind? He had the lead on the fast break and slowed down to match Delfino's speed.

To me, a facial dunk is when you have the guy in front of you and you dunk it in his face (hence the expression facial). Dunking it on somebody when they are to your side or chasing you down is not as impressive as owning somebody who is literally in front of you. Still, it was an ok dunk for Delfino.

I still consider that a poster, albeit a weak one. Delfino's dunk is def not a facial though.

Yeah Asik took a side angle to avoid a blocking foul. Of course he still tried to block it but he definitely took a side angle.

By your definition the Durant dunk would not qualify as a facial either. Durant prepared to block Delfino, he was ahead of him on the fast break steal then got embarrassed by a 6'6" guy. Shameful....

Can we please stop with this bulls--- already?

Not trying to disrespect but Im tired of clowns posting videos without an idea of what a "facial" is. A "facial" is when one defender is squared directly in front of another defender, tries to contest the dunk by jumping to block the shot or attempting to draw a charge and gets dunked on.The name implies the meaning, to get dunked on directly "facing" a player, or a dunk in which a player in a way of words "dunked all over his face".

Sorry to try and get technical about dunks on a web forum, but any time somebody describes a dunk wrong, it's usually a total letdown of a thread and a waste of people's time clicking into the video link.

A facial CANNOT include:
A failed chase down block
two players facing the same direction
a player merely near the basket but never contested the dunk or had any contact
a player simply blown-by off the dribble but was not squared to contest the dunk

Exactly, neither are a facial. Pretty good dunk, but the lead up and description were off.

Yeah stare down the guy who is totally destroying your whole team regardless of who or how many players u put on him. Delfino got lucky and it's no facial it was just a failed run down block.

Also that "anorexic bit*h" as u called him drop 41 on u guys with out much hassle.

The definition of "Posterizing" someone or dunking on someone has seriously lost all meaning.

Delfino dunked the ball with Durant contesting him, not on him.

If you are not changing the background on you computer to this dunk, it is not a poster.

The definition of "Posterizing" or dunking on someone would be dunks like:

1. Carter on Mourning

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7EvwWBnBHM

2. Kobe on Dwight

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeLRym4Q-pg

3. Wade on Varejao

Those right there are posters/facials.

It was a nice play but as many have pointed out, he was dunked near him, not on him.
I don't mind the thread on it since it's borderline but there's most definitely been far better posters this season.

this thread smells like homerism and KD hate to begin with.....

not a kd hater and i have no agenda of the rockets winning lol

any highlight of delfino that doesnt involve a 3 should be amazing, the fact that he somehow finished that dunk after getting while getting contact from durant is just impossible considering delfino's physical limitations.

this is delfino, i thought people would assume that it wasnt a deandre jordan like dunk and appreciate this dunk for what it was.. impressive. the look after the dunk was just funny.

and if you all want to get technical about it, a chase down block or "failed chase down block" is obviously done when the defender is.. "chasing you down" not when hes ahead of you and slows down to measure you and jump to contest.
give credit where credit is due. delfino's dunk was pretty impressive. durants dunk on both asik and delfino was nice as well, and so was parsons on ibaka. :)

Didn't Delfino have like 4 dunks in a game after the all star break? Also do you remember when Delfino dunked on Eddy Curry? Now that was a facial.

I think the point is that KD can do that, we know he can. He's probably just as long as Asik with way more athletic ability. Delfino has no business dunking on Durant. And Durant was there, he had him lined up. And he fouled Delfino trying to block it. Durants dunk was better because he is a better athlete. Delfino's was more unbelievable cause you don't think that would happen. Delfino's dunk will never happen again, but KD will do that every game.

Also add what Gibson did to wear couple season back. I was just about to say this but then I saw your post. Those dunks everyone is talking about aren't facials. when the dunker is on the side I don't consider that a facial. It's more a contested dunk. A facial is when its body to body and you get dunked "ON" not around.

This. He looked behind at the very end because I think Delfino surprised him by raising up on him, but Durant was in position to swat it, and then due to his own miscalculation was a bit out of position at the moment of the throw down. I would have expected Lebron to absolutely annihilate that dunk attempt by Delfino and it wouldn't even have been a story. I fully expected Durant to annihilate Delfino's shot but the opposite happened, thats why its thread worthy.
