We’ll never get a dunk contest to prove who was truly the best, but in your opinion, who was the top in-his-prime dunker of all time?

Vince Carter jumped over a 7 footer. 360′d the wrong direction. Yaked on every big time shot blocker he played against. Julius did just the latter. Dunking on Kareem is the sh*t, jumping over a 7 footer, is the diarrhea.
i laugh at the people who think nigue is the best hands down… I for one thinks its vince….. all of nigue’s highlights consits of windmills and powerdunks… vince had that and SOME MORE……….. and for 1 im glad to see that the MJ worshipers stayed awy from this post
no Shawn Kemp???
there might be people as athletic as carter but its really unlikely there will be someone with arms that long, hands that big, and an actual level of talent he can use to set those dunks up in a game
J.R Smith is a animal
1.Vince Carter in his prime.
I had to go with Vince “half man half amazing” Carter but who should be on this list is Earl ” the goat” Manigult! but alot of kids nowadays wouldn’t know who he was.Another choice would be Darrell Dawkins.Darrell broke backboards on a regular.I grew up watching every1 from MJ to all the players now.there are alot of good dunkers & dunks but Vince…..Vince was sick wit it.I saw him when he was playing at UNC.He did the 1st superman dunk(without the cape) on 3 of Georia Tech’s players.He was laid out flat in mid air & pulled off the dunk with time to eat a doughnut & sip some coffee,then against the Pacers,in Indiana,he turned a reverse lay up into an eye poppin jaw dropper reverse dunk…..i think Larry Bird pissed himself when he saw that! Vince jump over a 7foot 4 defender in the olympics then turned around that same year in like the 2nd or 3rd game of the season did it to Tim Duncan! I love MJ,he was my idol growing up & never thought there would be a better dunker but when I 1st saw V.C. playing for my Tar Heels & saw him throwing down,I knew he was special.Then he closed closed the book on doubters in the dunk contest.
there should be a poll 4 best dunker of todays current players. Dwight Howard would be my pick…..check out that dunk he did behind the basket & the 1 he did where he threw it off the backboard,tapped off the gass while still in the air & then threw it down. that’s some shyt you can’t even do on a video game!
Shawn Kemp.. Ferocity
