There are few things more enthralling and adrenaline-inducing than the art of the poster dunk.

20 Craziest Fights In NBA History

fights

Gone are the days where two NBA teams who straight-up didn’t like each other could get together and elevate their rivalry with a brawl. Good riddance. Those who enjoy watching titans inflict pain on each other can find plenty of other vices to quench their thirst for violence. In fact, there are entire weekends devoted to it, with the college and professional rankings of football dedicated to humans crashing into each other and hoping they hurt their opponent as much as they want to hurt them.

The teams in the East are set, but they are still jostling for positioning (unless you’re the Miami Heat). In the West, seven of the eight teams are set with it coming down to the wire between the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Lakers for the No. 8 spot. The Heat have proven all year long that they are the team to beat when the second season comes around and will definitely have a very good chance of repeating as champs. Read More »

The NBA’s Top 10 Facial Dunks Of All Time

Vince Carter

What makes NBA games so special and electrifying are the epic in-game dunks. Of course, we love the flashy passing and heart wrenching buzzer-beaters, but to be capsulated in a moment where someone gets posterized is beyond blissful. Let’s start by saying shout out to Brandon Knight as he valiantly didn’t give up on the play last night when he could have. He could have dodged DeAndre Jordan and let Lob City get away with another alley-oop. He didn’t. It’s okay. Read More »

The Top 10 360 Layups Of All Time

LeBron James

It feels like there’s almost a connection between the 360 layup and untapped potential (if you don’t count MJ), and I think we can all agree that Vince Carter is/was the king of the 360 layup. While he’s done it a handful of times in a game, there have been a few others who pulled it out as well. J.R. Smith and Nick Young are two of the best of the rest. Read More »
