    Blocks or Dunks?

    They can both serve as a momentum changer and boost team moral, but which do you think is more entertaining to watch; blocks or dunks?

    Blocks. Some centers can constantly dunk it. I remember those Laker teams with Shaq basically dunking the ball basically 90% of the time he got it inside.

    Blocks do two things: prevent a potential scoring play for one team, and sets off your team. A lot of times a block leads to a fast break opportunity since the opposing team is usually not expecting it.

    Not always the case, look at the play today when Bradley blocked Wade. Amazing block, got the fans hyped, and the ball falls to Battier for a three pointer. Obviously in the scheme of things that extra point didn't matter, but it could of...

    Dunks are a sure fire two points, and when answering this poll, I was thinking of poster dunks that usually result in a free throw opportunity. I will never tire of seeing a poster dunk.

    Dunks are more entertaining but blocks are most influential to games

    I picked blocks because it takes skill and timing to block, a short guy can block a tall guy if they use the effort and good timing.

    World class athletes that can jump can dunk so its not as impressive to me as it is to most.

    I would've thought the OP is asking about successful dunks and blocks.

    Because if you're making that argument, then I can say blocks don't always prevent scoring possessions when you get dunked on...

    Blocks or Dunks?

    A block is better than a dunk in normal circumstances, because blocks are less frequent. However, a poster dunk builds momentum like nothing else.

Melo will become the new Jordan of the league we are so lucky to have him!!!

    Depends on the block and the dunk being compared, for example; I'd get way more hyped watching this block over this dunk; but I'd get a lot more hyped up if I saw this dunk over this block.
