@onpointayden and I were discussing some of the better in-game dunkers we had seen in our time watching the NBA.  Granted we weren’t around to see Dr. J or other great dunkers like Daryl Dawkins in the 70s and early 80s.

The names that sprung straight to our minds were Vinsanity, Shawn Kemp, MJ, Gerald Green, T-Mac, Blake Griffin, ‘Nique, Shaq and even Derozan.

This dunk here is a classic that always comes up in the conversation:

 

 

But one name that didn’t automatically crop up was Dwayne Wade, he just doesn’t get the kudos for his ability to throw it down in the lane out in traffic.

I mean this dunk on Anderson Varejao of the Cavaliers was just vicious:

 

 

So if you’ve forgotten about how good he was (I can’t see him throwing down any more in future that would make this Top 20) or if you were semi ignorant like me, check out this next video of his Top 20 Dunks (some big time players in there get hammered).
