    smh, Doug Collins.

  • Lloyd

    Can someone tell me where I can watch all these games please?

    @Lloyd, I don’t know if it will work outside the uk, but the BBC, who broadcasted every olympic event here, have every olympic event on their website to watch whenever you want (I’m making good use of it!), might be worth a try… http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/2012/schedule-results/basketball

  • Tanner

    I think Melo’s 4 threes in a row against (I think) argentina should be on the list

    No one is paying you to think Tanner, 4 different possesions isnt a “play”

  • CubicleWorker

    Of course LBJ get’s the top spot. His pass to Durant is dropped by anyone who doesn’t have slick hands. RW dunk at the #3 spot was the best highlight on here by far. Guy is 6’3 and gets UP

  • biggieman

    Westbrook is nasty!

    God I love watching Westbrook throw it down, SICK!

    none of melos threes? boooooooooooo!!!!!!!!

  • LA Huey

    A 3 ptr needs an extraordinary circumstance to make it as a top play, guys.

    I think Allen P said it once… Westbrook might be the ‘hardest’ dunker in the L.

    Lloyd, it’s called illegal torrent downloading.
    Pretty easy.
    Safe unless your really really unlucky.
    Check out The Pirate Bay homie.

    One last thing, Melo’s 3′s should have been the top highlight. Just a clip of him nailing all 10 or whatever the hell he knocked down that day. History made.
    Yours was good LeBron, but Melo had the greatest olympic shooting game of all time. *Kanye voice*

  • LA Huey

    Lake, Russbrook moreso than Griffin?

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Sh*t man, I dunno what the science would say, but Westbrook seems to have something against the rim.
    Griffin seems to be trying to throw down hard dunks, where as Westbrook… he treats the rim like it abused his momma.
    Dude is mean.

  • Allenp

    Westbrook dunks like Carmelita Jeter runs. It is like inflicting pain is the only goal.

    That CP3 lead pass to KD, while Pau was bumping him out-of-bounds, was fantastic. CP3 firmly took over the Gold medal game in the 4th after Rudy, Llull and Rodriguez were overzealous on D and tried to bump him into submission.
    They didn’t woke the tiger in him.

    if you look at some of Russ’s dunks they are so powerful it it looks like hes gunna brick it, but instead the rim bends enough for him to jam it home… crazyyyyyy guy

  • cbb_fanatic

    Nice clips! Everytime I see Westbrook dunk…he looks like he’s skywalking!! LOL. I’m glad to see AD getting his proper respect and recognition, too. I knew Lebron was going to get the top spot (he deserves it), but the crazy thing is…that wasn’t even his best play!!! Whether you’re a Miami fan or not, you still have to respect this man’s game!

  • mugiwara

    all dunks, dat aint basketball.

  • SixftShaq

    Where’s James Harden’s dunk where he takes off from far away?

  • http://www.fiba.com Darksaber

    1st group game, Bron fakes a cut then goes backdoor on Diaw, all inside the paint, Deron lobs it from the top of the key, Bron stays in the air long enough to sylishly two hand flush it.
    That one was poetry in motion.

  • unrel

    westbrook to love to westbrook… that’s number 1… i dig how they act like they’ve probably done this before at the Pavilion

  • LA Huey

    mugiwara, you prefer they just show chest passes and set shots? btw, you read Counter Hazard? I’m excited for next week.
