Good God. Any of these dunks would probably get 9's and 10's in the dunk contest.. but that last one would be arguably the greatest dunk ever in the competition IMO. This was at Jamal Crawford's annual pro am in Seattle.

How many guys could have done Jordan's free throw dunk during Jordan's era?

Now, name how many guys could do Jordan's dunk presently.. Just proof athletes are just on another level. Never even heard of Zach Lavine before but those dunks were no joke.

We already know at this point how much of a freak athlete Zach LaVine is (and if someone was watching UCLA last season he knew even before the pre-draft workouts etc). The big question for him though is whether he can be equally as good as a basketball player cause if Gerald Green's first NBA attempt showed us anything, it's that even an off the charts jumper doesn't always have a place in the L. Not saying LaVine = early Green, just saying he needs to prove his skills on in game situations and not just pre-game dunk offs.

I have no doubt in my mind he'll be a good player. He has some skills, its not all athleticism. Major upside. Wolves got a steal IMO.

He made the behind the back dunk look so easy.

Better angles/HD footage of the dunks. Wow! Off the backboard 360 after tossing between legs off backboard (last dunk in vid).

How many players can shoot the free throws well in Jordan era? How many players can shoot the free throw well now? Just proof that athletes today are bad fundamentally.

The dunks are impressive but the way he handles the ball while he is in the air is what impresses me the most.

You have any proof to back that up?

The average FT% this season was 75.6%.

The average FT% in 1985/86 was 75.6%.

The average FT% in 1958/59 was 75.6%.

Reply me back when any center of this league will be able to replicate something like that.

Wilkins, Dr J (who did that already), Drexler (who several times during games did it from a half step inside the line), Kemp, Miner, Kenny Walker
