    Saw this yesterday, phluckin sick. I'd say it's the best dunk ever, the skill level needed is off the charts.

    I definitely wouldn't call it the "greatest dunk of all time".
    It's a good dunk and what I would call it is one of the most creative dunks I've ever seen.
    Best dunk ever? No way jozay.

    That's amazing but he did not jump over a French player.

    No defenders. Did not name his dunk in the post-game interviews.


    See Darryl Dawkins

    And they say we've seen everything in the dunk contest. I'm gonna need Andrew Wiggins to do this next year.

    It's pretty good but I would say in game dunks by Jordan, Dr J, Vince and Nique were better

    It was decent, but it is more ball placement than anything. If the behind-the-back pass is in the right spot, all he has to do is guide it in the basket, rather than slam it home (if that makes sense). It would have been different if he caught the pass then cocked back to dunk it in.
