Tough call today between Ryan Hollins and Kevin Durant. Hollins had the alley-oop factor working in his favor, but I made the choice to roll with KD for the most obvious of reasons—simply because a one-handed slam over Andrew Bynum is more impressive than a similar dunk over Spencer Hawes. No disrespect to Spencer Hawes, it’s just that he’s more perimeter oriented, and much less likely to level the dunker with a flagrant two foul.
On a semi-related note, Kevin Garnett completely teabagged Evan Turner with one of the illest rim hangs I’ve seen since Stromile Swift did this to Dirk Nowitzki. It is in instances such as these that complete douchebaggery becomes perfectly acceptable.
Dunk rating on the Starbury Nastiness Scale:
