Good afternoon, slam dunk enthusiasts! I was unable to get around to the Poster of the Day on Saturday, so today I will give to you a double dose of in-your-face action! Think you can handle that? If so, proceed.
Firstly, Kevin Durant on Jordan Hill. This dunk came during Friday night’s free-throw fest, just moments after Hill had stamped another KD stuff attempt return to sender.
Although Hill’s two-handed denial may have been even nastier than Durant’s revenge slam, I always consider the man who got the last laugh to be the winner. Either way, you gotta love it when two athletes find themselves meeting above the rim twice in one game. Twice in one minute, though? Not often will you see that.
Dunk rating on the Starbury Nastiness Scale:
7.5/10 Starbury Nasty Faces
Secondly, Blake Griffin on Tim Duncan. This dunk was a little out of the ordinary considering the man who threw it down. Griffin tends to go with his right hand, and he typically destroys the defender with full-body contact. On this play, though, Griffin elected to shift the ball to his left side and finish with his off hand in order to fly past Duncan.
