It came down to Ed Davis and Moe Harkless on the day after Christmas.  Being that one dunk wasn’t significantly better than the other, I elected to leave the decision up to my friends from the InsideHoops forums.  In this particular instance, only a smattering of people showed up at the polls… but those who did vote selected Harkless in a unanimous decision.  I happen to agree with them, as Moe’s throw down involved much more contact than that of Ed Davis. Having watched this dunk a few more times, I’ve realized that I actually like it more than I did initially.  It’s pretty ill how Harkless ***** it back a bit to add that extra oomph, and I love how Robin Lopez appears just utterly helpless.  Watch as he recklessly rushes to contest, but notice how quickly he realizes that he’s completely f@cked and ducks his head so not to witness his own demise.  If you pause the video at :26 it literally looks like the most pathetic, ill-fated block attempt of all-time.  Take a look at Gustavo Ayon in my screenshot; he looks mortified.  Everything about this dunk is just so… awesome, and the fact that it’s Robin Lopez getting victimized just makes the whole thing that much more enjoyable.
