We’ve seen the Timberwolves and Clippers achieve similar feats of strength and agility earlier this yeah, and the Heat had a play that was pretty close to this on opening day, but this is the most NBA Streets-ish double alley-oop of the season thus far. If Kris Humphries was wearing a hoodie and jeans and would have spun three times before the dunk, then this would really take the cake.

Skeets and Tas rank the best five dunks from this year’s NBA Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. (Yes, it was as difficult as you’d imagine.) But, hey, let us know your top five dunks from Saturday Night below, and we’ll pretend to argue.

Correction, Jim: That SCREAMS for itself. Damn.

Are you kidding me with this right now? I’m fine with Jeremy Lin playing because of injury, getting to the rim all the time and then finishing with reverse layups. I’m fine with him jumping in the air, hanging for a long time and finding Steve Novak in the corner for three. I’m even fine with him waggling his tongue all awkward because he’s not sure how to celebrate. All of that is good by me.
But this is too much. Crossing over John Wall and throwing down while Mo Evans literally gets out of the way to avoid being dunked on? It’s just too much, like at the end of “Pineapple Express” when it turns in to an action movie and Seth Rogen is flying around on wires attacking people. This feels like an elaborate Ashton Kutcher prank.
And the Knicks are playing the Lakers in Los Angeles Friday, which means we get at least one more day of Jeremy Lin dominating. Derek Fisher trying to keep up with the best point guard in the history of basketball? Yeah, right. I’ll just start writing the “Jeremy Lin throws down a 360 on Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol” post right now.

I love how LeBron James and Blake Griffin are secretly having their very own Dunk Contest.
First, LeBron pulls off “The Assassination of John Lucas III” oop.
Blake, unfazed, sees that and raises him with a good ol’ “Mozgov” on Kendrick Perkins’ mug.
Another “10″ from the judges.
LeBron’s answer? Oh, you know, just your routine “Windmill Tip-Dunk” off a Wade miss versus the Bucks. (And, yes, we’re aware it didn’t count. THIS IS A HYPOTHETICAL DUNK CONTEST! Relax.)
In this contest? Probably good for only a “9,” believe it or not.
But you’re up, Blake. Should we send Kenny Smith to go get the choir?

You’ve seen both of these dunks a billion times already, but when you watch them side-by-side it’s almost eerie how similar Blake Griffin’s dunks over Timofey Mozgov and Kendrick Perkins are. Just for the sake of everyone’s confidence, Clippers opponents should probably mention that side pick-and-roll in the scouting report. Bad things happen if you skip over that page.

Let’s all make Dirk’s “OOOHHHHHH!!!!!” our ringtones because that won’t get annoying every time we get a call, text message or email. So funny.
