I did a little Youtube surfing this afternoon, and I must say, I think I’ve come up with a few hidden gems here.  Not only that, but this expanded edition of TBPYNSB will include TEN plays instead of the usual five!  Consider it your early Christmas gift from your favorite NBA blog. 

I think I’ll begin with this monster slam from none other than Keon Clark.  You’ve all seen his famous dunk with the epic extension over Shawn Bradley, but how about this pwnage of basketball-playing Samurai Scot Pollard?


Did you know Keon Clark holds the Toronto Raptors franchise record of 12 blocks in a single game?  Yeah, there I was thinking the creator of that Sporcle quiz mustn’t have known how to spell M-A-R-C-U-S C-A-M-B-Y…  Anyway, Keon’s 12 blocks stood as the most by any NBA player from March 23rd of 2001 until March 15th of 2011, when Javale McGee matched his total against the Bulls.

Moving right along, here’s one of the best alley-oops I’ve ever seen that’s rarely brought up in highlight discussions.  It’s the Jailblazer connection: Bonzi Wells to ‘Sheed Wallace!  Pause at the :23 mark for an incredible screenshot…


“Bordering on the ridiculous” is right.  That’s some extension matched only on legendary alley-oop slams by the likes of Dwight Howard and Stromile Swift.

Next up is my favorite video of this bunch.  It includes five spectacular plays from the J-Kidd/K-Mart/RJ Nets of the early 2000s .  You may have seen the two furious K-Mart dunks in one of his highlight reels, but they’re worth watching again.  The other three dunks are by RJ, and I’d never seen any of them before.


I kinda wish Kenyon never had that beef with Mark Cuban because I’d love to see him sign with the Mavs when he returns from China.  That could be happening sooner than expected, by the way.

Time for the featured play, and it’s a good one!  Andre Miller has been known to pull off a surprising slam dunk from time to time.  He’s also had a tendency to randomly explode for 52 points and sport some pretty strange hairstyles.  I’d say he rather enjoys surprises, and here’s one that must’ve shocked the hell out of Theo Ratliff.

I bet you could find footage of Earl Boykins dunking on Theo if you looked hard enough.  Poor guy’s been posterized by most every NBA player who’s suited up for a game between 1995 and the present.  Fun fact: Theo’s full name is Theophilus Curtis Ratliff, according to Wikipedia.  That must’ve made for some great first days of school.

This next play features another premier ball handler of the past decade, Rafer Alston.  He’s not about to posterize anybody, but I think you’ll enjoy this pass…

Just in case you were wondering, Alston last played pro basketball in China last winter and now coaches high school ball in Texas.  The finisher, Trenton Hassell, has been playing for the Nashville Soul of the ABA since making his exit from the NBA following the ’09/10 season.  The Nets may want to give him a call.  I mean, he has to be better than Stephen Graham, right?

Speaking of players who are probably still better than Stephen Graham, here’s Ruben Patterson with some end-to-end awesomeness.  Even after a fair amount of thinking, that’s the best I could come up with to describe the following 37 seconds.

Well, was it not awesomeness?  Was this entire post not awesomeness?  That’s (kind of) not a rhetorical question, so leave a comment, or hit me up @NBA247OFFICIAL.
