GIF: LeBron James Goes By Ramon Sessions With Slick Around-The-Back Move

LeBron James

LeBron James is approximately 6-8, 250 pounds. Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone was listed as one inch taller and that exact weight. Can you imagine The Mailman pulling off this move? Us neither. Watch The King exhibit his surreal blend of quickness, power, and dexterity by losing Ramon Sessions with a slick wraparound move en route to a layup in his team’s 101-90 win over the Sacramento Kings.

Watch Jeff Teague Get Two Blazers Airborne With Fake Before Hitting Layup

Jeff Teague

Jeff Teague

We’re not sure who the Atlanta Hawks’ best player is, and it frankly doesn’t matter. Mike Budenholzer’s team is the rare one that contains multiple All-Stars but possesses a whole far bigger than the sum of its parts. But it’s safe to say the Hawks wouldn’t be where they are without the development of point guard Jeff Teague. Watch the sixth-year pro and first-time All-Star put his rare combination of athleticism and (rapidly developing) skill-set on display by utilizing a sick ball-fake that gets multiple defenders in the air before making a wide open layup in Atlanta’s thrilling 105-99 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

GIF: Rudy Gay Goes Backdoor On LeBron James For Beautiful 360 Slam

Rudy Gay

It’s hard to believe nine-year veteran Rudy Gay is still on the low side of his 30th birthday. That definitely explains how he’s still able to throw down dunks like this, though. Watch the Sacramento Kings swingman take advantage of a napping LeBron James and go backdoor for a powerful 360-degree slam in his team’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Read More »

Even if Derrick Rose is forever unable to regain his MVP-winning form, at least we’ll have hordes of video documentation by which to remember it. In what he considers the best highlight of his career, watch the Chicago Bulls superstar split a trap and glide around Joel Anthony for a mind-bending poster dunk during a 2011 game against the Miami Heat.

GIF: Joakim Noah’s Behind-The-Back Dime To Pau Gasol

Joakim Noah, Pau Gasol

The Bulls lost to a frisky Lakers team still missing both Kobe Bryant — out for the year — and Nick Young. The double OT loss by the Chicago still featured a gorgeous string of passing, culminating in a behind-the-back Joakim Noah dime to Pau Gasol. Unfortunately, with their coach entangled in a swirl of rumors about his job security, the Bulls dropped the second game of TNT’s back-to-back, 123-118. Read More »

Watch Victor Oladipo Fly Through Lane For Beautiful Two-Handed Slam

Victor Oladipo

This wouldn’t win the dunk contest – not even close. That Victor Oladipo can do it so comfortably during a game is certainly encouraging for his coming performance on February 14, though. Watch the Orlando Magic high-flier soar through an open lane for a gorgeous two-handed slam in his team’s 115-100 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Read More »

Video: Chris Paul Pleads To Refs By Mocking Gordon Hayward’s Head-Jerk

Chris Paul

We’re not sure it’s a good idea for Chris Paul to draw officials’ attention to these kinds of flops. From a pure enjoyment standpoint for spectators, though, we’re certainly glad he did. Watch the Los Angeles Clippers superstar amusingly – and effectively, we think – plead his case to the referees that Gordon Hayward needlessly flailed his head back to draw a foul in his team’s 94-89 win over the Utah Jazz.

GIF: Wiggins Lobs To LaVine From Half-Court

Zach LaVine

While basketball fans won’t be seeing both of the self-titled Bounce Brothers – Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine – participate in next month’s Sprite Slam Dunk Contest, getting to see only one of Minnesota’s rookies in the dunk-off hardly feels like settling. This reasoning becomes more evident each time LaVine does some damage to the rim in the open court, like we saw during Wednesday’s matchup between the Timberwolves and the Celtics. Read More »
