One of the most humiliating things that can happen to an NBA player is to get posterized. This occurs when a player dunks in the face of another, basically it comes down to the simple fact of who can jump higher. While I do respect players for attempting to block the incoming freight train and not just letting them score, but it has got to be horrible to see yourself getting dominated on every sports network in the world. Yes I am talking to you Shawn Bradley, Dikembe Mutombo, Manute Bol, and Greg Ostertag or Postertag.
With the 2009 NBA Finals in full swing, it is time to examine some of the greatest dunkers of all time. For the list I tried to select influential dunks that changed the way we view the great game of basketball. You will find your favorite idols throwing down in important NBA games, most being in the playoffs. Unfortunately I could not add every dunk I wanted to the list and had to accommodate for video availability and quality. Be sure to comment on some of your favorites that have been omitted and link to the video if it exists.
