Rank the best Raptor dunkers ever. Pick 3.

There's only room for 10 names on the poll so add others in the thread if you want.

(Don't give me grief about including Bargs. :roll: I didn't vote for him but I thought I should include him. He has had some pretty awesome dunks over the years.)

some classic clips :D

Demar should not be on the poll. Ed's had way more nice dunks than Demar.

Demar really shouldn't his in game dunks have been lackluster at best.

Ross getting votes already?

I remember Pops Mensa Bonsu having some awesome dunks, mostly because he was undersized yet still finished over multiple defenders with a lot of force.

Marion's dunk over Granger I still remember to this day

Even Jack was disappointed when Demar did a lame dunk on a breakaway a few weeks back. Ross the same game threw down a vicious tomahawk dunk on a fastbreak and Jack said "Are you watching Demar?" lol. :lol:

Its funny how Pops literally only played like 30 games for us yet there's a long ass line of highlights for him. He might be a one-hit wonder of a player but it is telling how this franchise constantly rewards chumps with long-term contracts

That part where he blushes to the standing ovation always makes me smile---we had guys like Bosh, Bargnani, Jose, etc. in that game but the crowd recognized just how hard Pops busted his ass. If only he were an inch or 3 taller he'd probably still have a job. Very few undersized bigs who aren't skilled at all yet play so damn hard actually make it (ie. Hayes).

Keon may have only had one dunk in his arsenal, but man was it a good one.

If Ross is there, Acy should probably be there too.

I had to go with Vince, Keon, & it was a toss up between T-Mac & Ross.

Honorable mention to Dee Brown, Martin Lewis, Fred Jones, Carlos Rogers.........

......& Joey D!

I would argue Vince Carter is one of, if not the, best dunkers of all time in the NBA. Pretty sure he should be considered the best raptor.

His in game dunk over the 7 footer is one of my favourite in game dunks.

I agree Gay is unmovable. If Masai can pull another miracle and get back anything back for him, I'm donating to a Nigerian charity -

Dec 8 Raptors trade Rudy Gay to Sacramento. Nigerian charities cheer Masai

You know honestly, the poll should have been "the next best three dunkers" because I doubt anyone disagrees with your point.

DD... you know, I swear he jumps too late or something. He always seems to be too far under the basket when he actually throws it down, like every single dunk. It makes every one of his dunks look slightly awkward.

I agree with MEDIC.
VC and Keon first. Few other good dunkers.
Don't forget Joey Graham. In one specific season, he did many of the top ten best dunks in Raptors season.

About Bargnani: he did some great driving dunks. It's a little bit frustrating to see almost only jump shot when we know he is able to score in another way
"But the thing is, maybe I do want to wake up one morning and say, `Baby, let's go to the Bahamas. Today.' That costs money. So what if I want to do that?
