Kevin Durant’s Ridiculously Filthy Dunk On Brendan Haywood

Do we need to say anything else? I didn’t think so.



Was this the best dunk of Durant’s career?

    He actually through it into the basket from on high. So, a new category of power layup?

    Nice dunk. Kid’s come a long way from getting block at the rim by the likes of Manu Ginobili.

  • That’s What’s Up

    Fish, please – he took a hard foul on his arm that was in fully-loaded tomohawk mode

    he hit the rim with his hand even after being knocked off balance

    If there is a word that is Nastier than Nasty, this dunk deserves it

    No power lay up, Haywood got bashed on. Guilty as charged lol

  • Fish

    @whatsup Not hating on it, was nasty as hell.

    Just saying he didn’t make meaningful contact with the ring on the follow through. So not a dunk by definition.

    Fish – Then I want to NOT dunk like this. Or Blake. Or Keon Clark back in the day. I usually flip out on a big dunk, but I sat on my sofa, didn’t move, and asked very quietly to my buddy, “what the fuck just happened?”

  • LeRoy Green

    in the words of Pusha T:

    YEUCK!!!!!!!!!!

    that sh*t was FILTHY and as a Mavs fan I jumped outta my seat when it happened…then just SMH after every replay.

    goodness gracious, if that was street ball Haywood would have to leave the gym and come back another day lmao

  • That’s What’s Up

    cool fish.
    Definitely more of a dunk than Blake Griffin’s “throw-down dunk”, but Durant did lose it before the flush

  • Fish

    @bigisland you and me both.

    If he managed to get his body just a little bit closer (an extra 10 pounds of muscle would have clinched it) it would have been an all-time great.
