Greatest Dunk of All Time?

No disrespect, but DeAndre Jordan’s dunk on Brandon Knight might be the greatest dunk of all time, which is hard to say as a Micheal Jordan fans.

Just watch.

It’s no secret that all of the Vocalo staff are big NBA fans. Brian, Luis, Jesse M, JDLP, Shantell, and even our managing director Silvia all remember the glory days of Michael Jordan and the 1990’s Chicago Bulls. Any one of us can tell dramatize MJ’s last shot as a Bull on command. Even Molly grapples with her allegiance between the Boston Celtics and the Chicago Bulls. 

Last year, using Jesse M’s action figures and Luis’ sports toys we re-enacted the 1988 slam dunk contest. Again, we’re big fans, but DeAndre Jordan’s dunk on Brandon Knight was just nasty. 

As Luis and Jesse M re-watched and re-watched the DeAndre-Brandon assault this morning, Lou said with some hesitation, “do you think it’s the best dunk of all time?”

Jesse reminded him of Shaquile O'neal’s dunk on David Robinson in the ‘96 All-Star Game 

Then there was Micheal Jordan’s dunk on Patrick Ewing.

A lot of people are comparing DeAndre’s dunk with Blake Griffin’s most famous monster dunk on Mosgov.

And there’s always Vince Carter’s dunk in the 2000 Olympic games.

And less famously, but notable Taj Gibson’s dunk on Dwayne Wade.

All amazing in your face dunks, but DeAndre Jordan’s was so nasty.
Here it is again just for good measure.

Is it the greatest dunk of all time? That’s a tough one, but when even the man who dunked the ball is equally disgusted by it as everyone else, it’s definitely near the top. At least his last name is Jordan.

American Routes did an hour long piece on Thelonious Monk.  When listening to Monk I get a sense that we’re getting exactly what we’d get if we met him in real life.  Some of Monk is my favorite Jazz to listen to, some other Monk pieces are so uncomfortable they become unlistenable.  Thus is the life of an eccentric.
