    "It's over!"

    Seriously, I would have been okay if that turned into an And 1 moment, and people started running on the court and hugging dude. That is unreal. In a game too.

    I was just waiting for one of those announcers to say "SLAMMMA JAMMMA!!!".

    Also, that dunk looks much better when he's not covered in glow in the dark material.

    That's the dunk of the year so far but I'm sure now since other NBA players have seen that dunk by PG they gonna try so nice dunks of their own on break aways

    George is guard... 6"10 guard.

    Why am I not so impressed with the dunk?

    something to do with the lack of lift, and he just barely got the rim at the top of his reach.
    I like dunks that come from above the rim, i.e. the VC one.
    It could be I am just spoiled to amazing feats of dunking prowess, here on the Raptors, we have never had a shortage of that. (VC, McGrady, Moon, Demar, Ross)



    EDIT: For comparison



    Notice how much less graceful and straining it is for Paul George to finish the play.

    In game 360 windmill > dunk contest 360 windmill.

    that's just me though.

    I'm not sure anyone can measure up to Vince's dunks aesthetically.

    Vince jump was more vertical, he nearly comes to a full stop, which IMO helps the looks a lot.

    George is dunking in transition, flying forward, he's some 3ft away when he reaches his top elevation point and starts the dunk, and he's at the rim when he gets it in.

    And Vince is a smaller guy, which IMO always looks better.

    That said, degree of difficulty on this one was great. George dunked in game, it's not carefully choreographed. It's after his own steal. It's at the end of the game when everyone's tired and he had already scored 30+ points.

    In general, it's impossible to do what Vince did in transition. You are always going to fly forward, you can't come to a nearly full stop. Unless of course the other team gives up on the play and lets you do what you want, so you can stop, measure up and dunk.

    sick dunk..but i don't think it's going to be the dunk of the year. there's still a lot of basketball left to play and i know someone's gonna do some nasty shit, that's just gonna make you step back. in the past there was gerald green and his windmill in game, deandre jordan over brandon knight, lebron on terry, the mozgov, the perkins, and the one i think is so underrated: derozan over mozgov.

    Those 'a giant humiliates the little guy' dunks weren't impressive to me. The one where Terrence Ross flew along the baseline and dunked a putback on the other side of the rim impressed me much more than DeAndre on Knight or LeBron-Terry.

    Okay, the two you listed yes they were big over smaller dude. But the derozan on mozgov wasn't like that and the Gerald green in game windmill was crazyyyy. Barnes over pekovic...the ross one was nice. Shit there's been so many nasty jams. You can literally list off numerous jams that could top a list.
