Video: Derrick Rose’s Monster Dunk vs. Knicks

The Knicks‘ impressive road win last night may have come as a surprise; what wasn’t entirely shocking, was DRose unleashing yet another mind-blowing dunk:

    That’s the difference between Rose and Russ, russ is mostly a one-legged jumper while Rose is equally devastating off one or two legs. That was BOOMSHAKALAKA!!!!

  • Shadojoker

    damn shame my team had to lose last night to the Knicks of all teams..but if your gonna lose..embarrass somebody in the process! Way to be D Rose!

  • JER Dawg

    Damn! Looks like Rose took off from like 15 feet outside the key and got shot out of a cannon. With 2 hands no less! Rose is good for one of these insane dunks a few times per season. That one last season vs. Drajic of Suns was crazy. Fast don’t lie is so true.

    Sick. I have a great idea, Coach Thibs: Bench him!

  • Cizzo

    Whoa!!! he throw down dunks like he’s 6’8″ vicous!!

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    Not one of the best dunks we’ll see all year, but very ferocious!

    How tall is he again? Impressive stuff.

    That last view shows just how impressive that dunk was. His dunks look nice because he pulls them way back and kicks back with his legs too. It makes it look like an NBA jam dunk.

    he still doesnt have hops like westbrook

  • http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/chicago-bulls-confidential/ Diesel

    You’re right cantrell, Rose gets higher. You’ll never see a dunk like this from westbrook because he needs to take off of one foot. Which means he’s not dunking in traffic like this.

  • T-Money

    What was Toney Douglas doing exactly?

  • http://bulls.com airs

    yeah @c_cantrell are you kidding?

    rose gets up. 40 inch vert don’t lie.

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com Seth

    His two-hand, behind-the-head jams are awesome.

  • http://google c_cantrell

    i never said rose doesnt get up and i never said westbrook was an elite dunker in traffic i jus said he has more hops than rose.. he has a higher verticle is all

    Russ West’s vert is 38.5. That should settle that.

  • jahmai

    That slow-mo at 0:26 until the end, is amazing.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Rose is the best dunker among all point guards in the NBA. Period.

  • Hammer

    Westbrook aint got s**t on rose. Sick dunk,but the 1 he had on dragic last year was filthy,nasty and despicable!

  • JTaylor21

    Y’all rose doubters need to go check out some of his high-school dunks and I promise you will become a BELIEVER!!!!!

  • permaculture james

    Tasty. Reminds me of Sprewell’s 2 handers.

  • feez22

    dang awesome dunk. Yup definitely the best pg dunker but westbrook is also very good at dunking as well. w/e both vicious dunkers. westbrook’s putback slams are beast though gotta admit guy is a ferocious rebounder.

  • feez22

    i just like westbrook dunks more bc he goes in with some crazy power. lol don’t shoot me or call me a rose hater i like power dunkers. yes yall will say rose goes in with power but definitely not the power westbrook goes in with. ive seen my fair share of finesse dunkers vince carter and TFB(except for elevator) have me all finessed out…

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    The coolest thing about this dunk is that you can actually see Rose look down at the defender, notice who he’s playing him, see there is no help behind him, and then kind of smirk before exploding past him. It all happens in the span of 5 seconds, but if you watch closely, you’ll see it.
    The strangest thing is how this dunk didn’t make Taj Gibson or Noah go crazy. On most teams, if you dunk like that, it gets everybody on the floor hype.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    True Hoop (sorry Slam) has a video that shows Rose’s expression.

  • jahmai

    Westbrook is nice but Drose is just filthy + Russ misses alot of dunks, seriously, not just in fiba, but this year too. I watched the Thunder games on league pass.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    JTaylor21 – yeah, his dunks from Simeon were sick. The one-hand windmill where he slips and falls on his ass afterwards is my fav. LOL

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    @Allen – Carlos Boozer went nuts on the sidelines. But he hasn’t been around Rose as long as Noah and Gibson. Welcome to the Chi, Booz.

  • http://slamonline.com Bryan Crawford

    Co-sign, Enigmatic. The guys who’ve been there have seen that from DRose for 2 years. It’s nuffin.

  • http://slamonline.com Bryan Crawford

    Allen, that smirk was accompanied by these thoughts: Oh no they di’int open the lane like that. Fast don’t lie. I’m gone. I’ll catch you on the other end, Toney. Take this one wit’cha. Peace…

  • thalilbigkahuna

    I like how Gallinari looks completely lost after he gets dunked on.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    ok, he dunked on an open rim………

  • Towelie

    What sh*tty defense.
