The Sticker Dunk
Despite the low score from the olympic style judging (it scored 42), Dwight Howard put together what I considered the best dunk of the night. Jameer Nelson flips the ball up to Howard who slaps the backboard waaay high up and throws it down. Nothing special, right? The camera focuses high on the backboard and there's a sticker with Howard's face on it. Nelson whips out a tape measure, they both marvel the height and Nelson holds up a sign with 12'6" on it. Good times.
Granted Gerald Green had more explosive dunks, but The Sticker Dunk had everything: athleticism, power and showmanship. The judges should have given him at least a 48! Did we really need to see Nate Robinson (and another year of 10 plus attempts) advance to the finals? Anyway, here's photos of The Sticker Dunk, you be the judge:
