    Top 10 dunks of the season

    The “Dunk of the Year” competition has been so fierce this season that a simple ground rule must be set before wading into the discussion: Only posterizations need apply.

    The league simply has too much athleticism, power and creativity for anything except a contested slam to rate. Yes, that leaves out great moments such as Jamal Crawford’s between-the-legs alley-oop to Blake Griffin or Terrence Ross’ 360, but there’s just no substitute for the degree of difficulty — not to mention showmanship — involved in finishing over a moving target.

    With that in mind, here are the top 10 dunks of the season, as The Point Forward continues its look at the best and worst of 2012-13.

    I really really liked the MKG dunk when I saw it live on league pass, I thought that would be top 5.

    i don't care much for some of these. 3 on 1 vs. Jason Terry.. it looks ok. but the author is excluding a bunch of great dunks because of the 'degree of difficulty'. this may be a 'poster' but it's far from the highest degree of difficulty.

    i think the dunk of the year is one of Terrence Ross dunks, probably the one where he sneaks the baseline for a reverse putback dunk. Ross had several gems.
    on this list, i like Barnes-Pekovic and Mullens-Aldridge the most. Aldridge made it a bit too easy though. i there was some resistance, that dunk would be so much better.

    Pretty decent list but by their parameters, Jordan shouldn't be number 1 (I love the .GIF with the coffin though). I don't think Kobe would have made my top ten.

    Loved MKG's and Derozan's.

    Probably should be renamed to top 10 posterizer dunks instead of just dunks.

    Why is Jeremy Lin not here? Racist McHale

    Those dunks were not that big of a deal. That one by Jordan was amazing though.

    DeAndre's looks fantastic (the way Knight is left sprawling).

    Personally I like MKG's as the next best one - freeze it at the rim and it makes a fairly sensational poster!
