We Reminisce: Ricky Davis dunks on Steve Nash

Inspired by Andre Iguodala‘s performance with Team USA this summer, Smack reader Poolpal44 (pause?) put A.I.2 on his list of the angriest dunkers of all-time. Making my own list, Ricky Davis crossed my mind, but ultimately missed the cut. Although I’ll never forget this dunk:

    Coming up with 10 is tough…so far I got

    Sprewell
    Kemp
    ‘Nique
    Charles Barkley
    Igoudala
    Josh Smith
    Darryl Dawkins

    I would put Shaq on there, but he never really looked ANGRY when he was dunking. Powerful, for sure, but never really demonstrated anger, in my recollection.

  • http://www.TheProductBand.com Kermit The Washington

    I’d put a young KG on that list, too

  • http://dimemag.com Austin Burton

    I’d put Alonzo Mourning on there before Shaq.

    AB,
    the pause tho? lol i’m weak…

  • Poolpal44

    its hard to distinguish between angry and powerful, or just heavy. Dawkins broke the backboard cause hes an angry/crazy fella. Shaq broke it cause hes a big dude.

  • http://www.TheProductBand.com Kermit The Washington

    Ok fine…Lebron James as well.

    an how about c webb?

  • http://www.TheProductBand.com Kermit The Washington

    oooooh….CWebb is an interesting suggestion. I wouldn’t have thought of him, but yeah…the dunk on Barkley comes to mind, and that was totally done out of anger in the moment.

  • Poolpal44

    how bout Keon Clarks’ “im so angry I dont even want to touch the rim” dunk?

  • http://www.TheProductBand.com Kermit The Washington

    Oh snap. How in the world did we forget KENYON MARTIN?!?! He’s gotta be top 2 or 3 HANDS DOWN

  • JAY

    I hate the shit out of Vince, but he should be on there, 100%. Watch his dunk reels. Not all of them were angry dunks, but the ones that were angry, were downright filthy.

    He has the angriest, disrespectful, nba-career-stealing, I’m-letting-you-know-you-ain’t-shit dunks of all time…. do I really have to explain which one I’m talking about?

  • Detroit Dave

    As long as Sprewell and Kenyon Martin and Barkely.

    Sprewell 97′ All Star Game—–2 Dunks. 2 Victims. Pippen and Mutumbo. Nuff Said.

    Kenyon Martin—- Banged on Jermaine O’Neal (with 2 Healthy Legs) so hard that I thought Jermaine’s it would be justified if Jermaine challenged him to a knife fight.

    Barkley——-any dunk he did in a 76ers uniform….

  • http://www.TheProductBand.com Kermit The Washington

    @ Jay: I thought of that too, but the thing is…if you put vince as top 10 for this reason –

    “Not all of them were angry dunks, but the ones that were angry, were downright filthy.”

    – then you have to put Kobe, DWade, Dwight Howard, etc in there. Just because someone has had lots of angry dunks in their career, doesn’t necessarily change their entire identity into being an “angry dunker”, you know?

  • JA

    I think you have to distinguish between a true angry dunk, and the dunk/yell or dunk/doo-doo face that everyone seems to use now-a-days.

    Spree and Barkley – those guys would try to hurt you when they dunked

  • JAY

    @Kermit.
    I understand. You may be right……..

    ….but the guy jumped over a 7’1″. Fuckin EW.

    I don’t think anyone has been disrespected that bad on a dunk. Either way, I hate him. So keep him off the list. Lol

  • http://www.TheProductBand.com Kermit The Washington

    LOL I feel you Jay haha

    So I guess my list so far is something like

    KMart
    Kemp
    Sprewell
    ‘Nique
    Charles Barkley
    Igoudala
    Josh Smith
    Darryl Dawkins
    Young KG

    I don’t know if I like Josh Smith being on there…take him out, and I need two more for the top ten. Ok this has taken up enough of my day; lemme know what y’all come up with LOL peace

  • http://www.TheProductBand.com Kermit The Washington

    Oh and Lebron James!! I forgot him again. But yeah, he tries to break people’s block-attempting arms off when he dunks.

    Yea “Angry Dunk” has to be defined more. Cause some dudes come with some stuff but it’s no real intensity to it.

    Now I seen Kevin Johnson get one on Scott Skiles once, that made me wanna kick my dog for no reason. It literally was a get-back and angry dunk because KJ had been robbed of a call earlier that had Skiles involved.

    Where as Dwight to me just dunks hard all the time, but they not really eat-your-soul dunks!

    Dunking hard vs. dunking angry has to be more defined.

  • Poolpal44

    If you need a point guard, I think it has to be DRose. I was gonna go with BDiddy just because of what he did to AK47, but Rose never puts it down gently. And what he did to Gragic was one of the angriest things ever to happen, ever.

  • King

    Gotta have spree kemp, Sheed and kenyon martin on the list

  • Poolpal44

    I think its easy to tell the difference between angry and powerful. You just need to look at their demeanor. If they smile throughout the whole game (dwight), theyre probably not angry. If they are slapping the other teams players on the butt the whole game (LeBron) theyre deffinitly not angry. If you watch Andre Iguodala play, hes not smiling, hes just making ugly faces when breaks guys heads with dunks. KMart doesnt smile, KG never smiles, etc.

  • DatBoithere

    Lol..at cats finding a way to hate on Vince for sumthin he is the greatest of all time at..dats crzy, its sad enough he isnt respected for being a great talent in this league for years..but to talk shit about him on a dunking thread,,its just sad…anyway Kemp is dat dude..i think he made a couple cats shit themself..Amare aint no slouch either, ask Tolliver and Olawankandi or wuteva his name is.lol

  • JAY

    Vince is the greatest angry dunker? I must have missed that memo.

  • JAY

    Oh I get it, you must have misunderstood the thread… …your bad.

  • K Dizzle

    Patrick Ewing was tryin to break arms when he dunked. Before he fell in love with the j, dude was all power and ain’t no doubt he was angry.

    Dominique….not explanation necessary. Watch film.

    College vote: Larry Johnson at UNLV. My man was a terror!
    Runner-up: Chris Porter. Auburn. Literally killed a couple brothers on the court…

  • Krayzie

    No Amare?

  • the truth

    I’m not as impressed with dunks over a dude taking a charge, let alone steve nash. I’d rather see some dude smashin over a big man challenging the shot. that’s dunkin on someone

  • K Dizzle

    @ post 27

    So DWade over Varejao is on your list lol

  • Defender

    chocolate thunder

  • Promoman

    @12

    Jermaine did dunk on Kenyon twice after Kenyon dunked on him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwwqVQnlII8
