Guy Dupuy is one of the top dunkers on the planet, someone that puts Blake Griffin‘s acrobatics to shame. Recently, he burnished his already legendary streetball cred on the playground by bouncing the ball to himself before putting it between his legs for a dunk. The crazy part? He did it in a game.

Guy Dupuy Puts Blake Griffin’s Car Dunk To Shame

After watching Blake Griffin win the NBA dunk contest by jumping over a car, Guy Dupuy felt like he could one-up him. How? Try jumping over a car and going between the legs. If he’s lucky, perhaps he can get a BMW commercial…

Top 25 Dunkers on the Planet, Pt. 4

Dwight Howard

Here’s where it gets really difficult. In taking this ranking of the Top 25 dunkers on the planet beyond the NBA realm, it opens the door for all kinds of interpretation. When judging somebody like, say, LeBron James against a professional circus act like Guy Dupuy, how much weight do you give to the different elements of dunking? How important is doing it in games against the best players in the sport? How important are dunk contest performances? How important is dunking on players, compared to dunking over regular people?

But remember, there is no scientific method to judging dunkers. We took as much of a general consensus in the Dime office as possible, but it’s like ranking sneakers or our Mom’s cooking: Too many people like too many different flavors and styles. That said, here are Nos. 10 through 6 … Read More »

World’s Best Dunker Loses At Midnight Madness Dunk Contest

After years of consistently bringing out the best dunkers in the world, Midnight Madness is fast getting a reputation as one of the best dunk contests out there. Last year, Guy Dupuy broke out a crazy dunk that went viral. This weekend past weekend, he was back trying to defend his back-to-back-to-back titles, but it was Justin “Jus Fly” Darlington who stole the show. Throwing down some absolute craziness, including a cartwheel to through-the-legs dunk and a through-the-legs dunk over a guy who was 6-10, “Jus Fly” showed you how he got his name.

Guy Dupuy’s New Dunk Is Amazing

The last dunk contest we saw Guy Dupuy in we dubbed, “The Best Dunk Contest Since Vince Carter vs. Steve Francis.” But that was before we saw Guy’s new dunk at Midnight Madness in England. Could anyone in the League beat him right now?

The Best Dunk Contest Since Vince Carter vs. Steve Francis

We dropped a video of this yesterday, but you have to check out the cut from the Team Flight Brothers. Keep in mind that Guy Dupuy is 6-3 and TDub is 5-9 and these two are dunking over groups of people and then going through-the-legs or around-the-back. Ridiculous.
