Dunks are arguably the most exciting part of watching basketball games, especially in the NBA, where the best athletes in the world collide. Whether you're a Lakers, Celtics, or Warriors fan, you can't help to stand up and clap when a guy puts his defender on a poster, even if it's against your team.
Michael Jordan, Dominique Wilkins, Julius Erving, and countless legends of the game went viral - even before that term or social media existed - thanks to their athletic traits and emphatic dunks.
And even though players seem reluctant to drive through the paint nowadays as they only look to take three-pointers, some players still master the fine art of dunking and find the way to renew their posters every now and then. Check out the best dunker per team.
