2010-11′s Top 50 Dunks

A collection of the season’s best throwdowns.

As we slowly fade into the heart of summer, us basketball fans can’t help but feel a sense of emptiness. With the NBA season finished, it’s time to reflect. Yesterday we brought you a video gallery of the year’s best buzzer-beaters, and today we salute all the high-flyers. In a league played above the rim, these 50 dunks stood out to us as the most extraordinary, gravity-defying dunks of the past nine months. It wasn’t easy to narrow a seemingly infinite selection to only 50, but we think we’ve done a pretty decent job. If you disagree with some of the rankings (which you will), feel free to stop by the comments section… Enjoy these clips, because it’ll be a while until next season, with or without a lockout.

    Too lazy to go page by page right now. This kind of galleries and your comment system (which really, really sucks. Please at least use disqus!) is my only complain with slamonline.com

    @pablasso you don’t need to go page by page, that’s why we’ve created these video galleries. Click the arrow and the next video appears…

    J.R. Smith on Garry Neal – ‘ I beleive i can fly !!’

    did not like the list at all. all the ed davis and landry fields dunks that were kinda high were mediocre and al thorton dunk should of been top ten, and wade dunk on perkins should of been number one to me. some of these dunks should not of been higher than number 50.

  • Kadavour

    FAIL Slam. the list was PERFECT until you insisted upon capping the best 15 mins of my day with two lay-ups.

  • Quantumphysix

    Agreed boys. Hate the format. And seriously Blake Griffin could have been in 40..

  • balher

    best dunks (NOT INCLUDING GRIFFIN):
    al thorton
    trevor booker runnin from half court for put back
    derozan on bobcats
    wade all over and around perkins
    westbrook over ALL of houston
    gibson over wade
    rose over anthony
    J.R takin a ride

    Having to click the ‘next’ arrow every time is annoying. It might make me sound lazy.. but it’s tedious.

  • Groves

    more JR smith required

  • Young C

    Having to click the play button for all these videos every time is soooo annoying!!! You guys should have it where if I just move the cursor over over the video it automatically plays without any buffering.

  • Young C

    Also, I didnt know that Andre Iguodala didnt play NBA basketball this year. If he had played, you could have taken out that weak Ed Davis dunk and put in one of Andre’s nightly masterpieces, but he must not have played this year seeing as how he doesnt have any dunks in the top 50.

  • All Day

    # 44 – Westbrook on the whole damn Rockets team!!! Watch the reaction of the Rockets bench!!!

  • add

    exactly where is iggy?

  • http://slamonline.com Fut.

    @add Probably in Philly somewhere.

  • cramzy

    Dwight over Jrue Holiday literally made me flinch. Dwade on Perkins was all kinds of disrespectful.

  • Ryan

    Ronnie Brewer and Hakim Warrick with nice flushes. Josh McRoberts needs to get a best supporting defender award.

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    Word to complainers. Slam, if you weren’t full of so much fail you’d have invented a way for me to will myself into the players minds and experience these dunks the way they did. Seriously, CHANGE THIS SETUP SO I CAN BECOME THE PLAYERS. FAILFAIL.
