Slamada – year? Dwyane Wade on Anderson Varejao

There was some dissent in the comments section yesterday with my selection for jam of the night. I have a feeling that today will be a different story. Welcome to poster-ville, Anderson:

    Wade dunked so hard on Varejao, that Andy’s hair is now straight.

  • LOAF


  • The Law

    No more flopping for you.

  • MJama

    i think this clip better encompasses the insanity of this dunk. It was posted so fast i couldn’t believe it.


  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Ben and I were at the game, and it was even filthier in person. Probably the best in-game dunk I’ve ever seen live.

  • Bruno

    hahahahaha poor vareajo

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    Nice dunk Dwyane….get the win next time to make it more satisfying.

  • http://nba.com Reflex

    I jizz myself everytime I watch this dunk, pure unadulterated filth.

  • Daddy Norris

    I luv how D-WAde just steps over Anderson after he dunks on his ass.

  • John Gambill

    that dunk was sick, shannon brown going from practically the free throw line on the break was intense as well, tough decision two days in a row, but dunking on a notorious flopper should get the nod.

  • Dave Zirin

    It’s revenge for the IOC picking Rio over Chi-town! Best in-game dunk of the last two years.

  • http://slamonline.com Krishan

    Computer engineers all over the world were cheering on that dunk, because now they have the definitive example of human-ragdoll physics from that replay. Expect your video games to be more realistic, people.

  • http://www.another48minutes.com Gerard Himself

    Yesterday’s game made me wonder: is Wade better than LeBron? When it comes to fundamentals, Kobe is the best player in the world. But who’s second? Why is LeBron second, and not Wade?

  • slamfan4life

    DAMN SON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DUNKOFTHE YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DWADEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  • drzmorenachula

    i just tweeted that lastnight. That better be the slam of da month on the upcoming issue. All two pages long!!! that was the most beautiful facial ive seen yet, and it was done by no one other then my #3 Miami Heat Wade!!

  • thomas

    is it just me or is reggie miller even worse this season… there’s no way he should be broadcasting games…

  • StorminNorman06

    Can this please be the next SlamUp :D

  • http://www.slamonline.com 360vue

    Disgraceful! Andy-pandy got absolutely posterized!
    @Gerard Himself, Wade is numero two, simple as that

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com/ Seth

    Welcome to your Kodak moment, Varejao? Geez, Reggie.

  • http://www.bluefont.com Hisham

    read his lips: “That’s how I do it!! That’s the way do do it!”

    That dunk was a reminder for LeBron on how to dunk on a big man. It seems like he forgot on that play.

  • http://nicekicks.com meloman2.5

    I watched it while it was happening and i was in SHOCK!!….leave it to Reggie Miller to kill the mood.. Why couldn’t Kevin Harlan call that game instead?

  • tavoris

    I had to take a drink after that one…it’s already a great one when the defender has NO EXCUSE.

  • http://slamonline.com Adam Fleischer

    I did a lot of hollering and shouting when this went down. A lot.

  • Jake

    Hahahaha.I can just imagine what it must have been like seeing Nique or Chocolate thunder throwing them down back in the day,that was one sick dunk though.

  • antoine

    I love how verejao just folds up after getting slammed on!!!!! lol

  • peter

    the crazy thing is, it looks like he only decides at the last minute that he is going to dunk it…he is kinda crossing the lane not even full speed. ridiculous

  • http://mbenga-mblog.blogspot.com rish

    It must be really annoying to sit beside Shaq on the bench. Dude hogs too much leg room.

    And by the way, my vote so far for dunk of the year. That was nasty.

  • http://thacorner.net/forums/ Kevin

    Damn. that’s really all I can say

  • http://www.mbenga-mblog.blogspot.com vmcb

    this was the most rediculous dunk I have seen in a long time. I got right out of my chair for this one, and that chair is damn comfy.

  • cramzy

    thank god for dvr. I was reading something when it happened and all I heard was the crowd, and Marv & Reggie going crazy.Had to hit that rewind button a few times.

  • Hangtime Hec

    Somewhere on this planet, a human being will have that moment frozen on a wall. You have now been made into poster Sideshow bob!

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    Gerard Himself: Wade outplayed Bron yesterday? Really?

  • DS44


  • LeoneL

    Varejao: to flop or not to flop

    DWade: doesn’t matter boy!

  • jdn41

    honestly lebron will never get a fascial like this because he doesnt set it up. lebron beats his man off the dribble or first step blow by then open lane everyone clears out… Wade on the other hand that rocker step (originated from manu) fakes out jamario moon shifts sideshow out of position making him unable to block/flop/get out the way/hack/anything really and just get shitted on beautiful man

  • Rafael

    I want to see this on a Sony 52 inch LCD T.V with freakin 2400z HD! Get on it human ingenuity!

  • filly


  • filly


  • http://www.another48minutes.com Gerard Himself

    Z: you misread my post. I didn’t say Wade outplayed LeBron yesterday. I was just thinking out loud that Wade might be a slightly better player than LeBron at this point in their careers.

  • j4zzm4n

    taste it anderson that was ahem , “sick,wicked and nasty” or dwyane wade “with no regard for human life!”.putting in classic quotes cos reggie just ruined the moment in terms of audio quality.but ah man that was awesome!!!

  • Tommy Vercetti

    Varejao got baptised by Wade. What did he do to Wade to deserve that?

  • JD

    Best dunk of the year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • la huey

    I loved the dunk! Every superstar owes it to his big man to follow a stop like that into a poster.

  • http://myspace.com/rsaenz24 rog123

    I’m a cavs fan and I think that Andy gets too tooooo much hate. He is a hustle player that evryone would want on their bench. Tough as hell. Yes he flops waay too much but still, he knows his role on his team. Anyways….. THAT DUNK! ! ! !

  • Slam Reader

    This is the craziest sh*t I ever watched!!!
    D-Wade is a monster!

  • BearsPaw

    Watch for Varejao’s feet in the background of the 1st replay. THe guy is a living cartoon

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    DUNK OF THE YEAR!!!FLASH IS MADNESS…now someone please give Andy a hug..lol…funny wow Bron see his teammate getting sh!ted on and walks the other way instead of helping the poor guy…

  • http://www.nba.com/playerfile/sean_marks/index.html Michael NZ

    There is no-one I like watching more than Mr Wade. And that was before this slamadayear.

  • ENDS

    Salm of the Last 5 Years. Think of one better..

  • Michael Scorn

    From the above view, you can see Wade pushing off with his left arm to get extra space. Offensive foul.

  • drewz

    reggie miller is the WORST announcer in history

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    gerard: i would disagree but i gues that argument can be made

  • Flash

    nobody at 6-4 can do it like dwade can!

  • Flash

    andy just died right thurr! i can’t stop laughing while he’s falling down haha

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    the next slam cover should actually be 2 seconds after the finish: wade standing tall with the expression of pure ownership and varaj flat on his back with his KNEES UP IN HIS MOUTH.

  • Flash

    this is how u do it lebron… dwade schooled him right thurr!

  • LilKDub

    Slamadamonth please. Or a SLAMUP. This must go on my wall, next to the Dunk of Death. If Slamadamonth, make it like a sequence; gather, takeoff with his hand in the air with maybe a reverse shot, the flush, then his triumph while stepping over Varejao.

  • B-More Mike

    Ends: I’m not saying it’s better but don’t forget V.C over Mourning in MIA a couple of years ago when he was with Jersey.

  • Costa

    Michael Scorn: Those are comments of a typical hater. Bringing out the negative of something great. Chech this picture and you tell me if this is more offensive than defensive… http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t229/miamiuk/dwyane_wade_anderson_varejao.jpg

  • nastierthanu

    Its a matter of preference. I love the one foot crams because u always get the thrust knee in the victims chest but I love the “lean” where u can turn side ways and use the free arm for further humiliation. Carmelo’s this year was disgusting.

  • http://slamonline.com niQ

    I’m going to get flamed for this but.. did anyone else notice Wade pushing him Anderson aside with his other arm? And it also looked like he gave him quite a knee in the gut..

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    yeah niQ, luckily all that was negated by Sideshow Varejao flopping yet again. (i kid, i kid, he challenged and got BEAT DOWN. BOW DOWN AND KISS HIS JORDANS, ANDERSON!)

    ENDS: baron davis’ forearm to kirilenko’s mug would like a word with you

  • jb

    reggie hates the cavs. but SICK dunk, SICK

  • Dave

    Gerard – I’m quietly confident that we’ll look back in fifteen years and think that Wade was always better than Bron.

  • Ben

    That was so beautiful to see Varejao lying on the floor after getting his ass handed to him by Wade. I can now die a happy man.

  • Black Knight

    Varejao might need counseling after that that dunk.

  • jufu

    this dunk is rated-R. not appropriate for children or andersen varejao.

  • Michael Scorn

    Way to step out of the way and not stop the ball Jamario Moon. I thought LeBron was the king of chasing down offensive players and blocking them from behind. Oh that’s right, Wade and James are friends.

  • vic21

    gotta be the shoes…

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    mmmm it IS kinda suspect that bron didnt run full speed behind him to try to get the block. and don’t tell me it was because d-wade can fly. he ran after j-rich last year.

  • Rnz

    Lets just enjoy the dunk shall we?…if you love basketball, you’ll love that dunk…dayum

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Manu didn’t invent that little rocker step that Wade used. Somebody posted that incorrect information.

  • tavoris

    well put, rnz

  • tavoris

    everyone dog’s Reggie’s announcing. I prefer whis whiny voice over Stephen A Smith’s Lawrence Fishburne impersonations

    that deserves a lifetime ban. dont ever compare jrich speed ot dwade speed or finsihing ability. he knows aint no one catching dwade in the open court once he’s ahead of you.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    liam ^ FAILS.
    So A. Daye didn’t block Wade in the pre-season? C’mon man. Think about what you’re saying. “aint no one catching dwade”.
    Well, that’s someone.

  • danno

    that just reminded me of dunking in NBA Live 96

  • http://myspace.com/rsaenz24 rog123

    Ends: I believe bron over duncan was greater. Wades dunk was great, but varejao was prolly flopping a bit. Bron threw it down on one of the best power forwards EVER!!!!!

  • http://myspace.com/rsaenz24 rog123

    BTW Varejaos reaction seemed very fake. But wade did give him the business

  • giogolo


  • giogolo

    Bron threw it down on KG and Duncan. Both of them(dwade) are sick.
