Udonis Haslem, Gerald Henderson

It is no secret the Miami Heat are one of the best fast-break teams in the league, but in the third quarter of Game 2 between the Heat and Bobcats, Gerald Henderson prevented Miami from an easy, transition bucket in impressive fashion. Mario Chalmers pump-faked the long jumper and dished a sweet bounce pass to Udonis Haslem, who was driving down the middle of the lane. Haslem thought he had a monster jam, but Henderson timed his jump perfectly and swatted away Haslem’s attempt. Read More »

For only a half season’s worth of basketball, the NBA’s top athletes have put together a strong resume and large volume of impressive slams, so much so that we had to list 100 of them.

Monster dunks. Nothing-but-net threes. Alley-oops. All are wonderful moments we’ve witnessed so far this season.

An NBA player did something this week that hasn’t been seen in over a decade and was previously performed by the league’s greatest dunker in a Slam Dunk Contest.

So, yeah, it was a good week for dunks, especially when the rest of the dunks consist of unlikely posters from unlikely names, including an act of vengeance from a certain Washington Wizards guard. Read More »
