VC is obvioulsy GOAT raptor dunker and probably GOAT dunker period. Fred Weis ftw.

Personally I chose Keon Clark and Ross as my other choices. I know TMac was amazing and he is a close 4th but some of Ross' dunks have been absolutely thrilling. Power, hops, creativity, grace, skill - he's shown as much as any raptor not named VC imo.

Someone call up the Raptors and get some Keon Clark footage put online...

EDIT: hey I found some.



honestly the slo-mo almost takes away the best part of his dunks though which was their vicious suddenness...

Did Fred Jones have any great dunks in his stint with the Raps? He was a Slam Dunk contest winner after all.

This thread needs an age limit, apparently some posters in here started watching BBall in 2008. They should just go to youtube and search for TMAC highlights then come back. I can believe that people have not seen enough Keon Clark plays or highlights but TMAC? Really?

I'm 30 and have been watching the team since it's inception yet I still am picking Ross over T-mac. Ross' dunks are vince-esque, T-mac had some sick ones but most were two hand putbacks and what not. Ross' are finesse.

For instance.

Bosh is severely overlooked, I watched the top 10 dunks but bosh has had way better and bigger... He had some big time facials on Magloire, Ratliff, Josh smith, windmill in the ASG...I remember a huge one handed ally oop from TJ Ford way back when... Can't find the footage... But I'll look

Maybe I'm a sucker for big man dunks, but Antonio Davis' two-foot jump, two handed dunks are among my favourite memories from that era. Don't sleep on AD

TMac is EASILY #2. It's as obvious as Vince in the #1 slot.

Aside from names mentioned (esp Keon and Weems), Maceo Baston had sick ally oops. He was gumby'ish.

What? Top 5? He's pretty much the undisputed greatest in game dunker of all time.

Ed Davis should be on this list since he gets twice as many dunks as anybody else on the team.

The fact that Bargs has any votes let alone 7 is hilarious.

Reggie Slater also deserves a mention as a pretty exciting power dunker back in the day...


Oh man, the memories! Also JYD was a pretty solid dunker as well who hasn't gotten any mention yet. But then again it's pretty hard to rank them when the number one is so much ahead of everyone else.

Everytime I see Keon Clark highlights I laugh to myself thinking that he's wasted out there playing against Pros (and for you guys with your balls wrapped tight - no I'm not laughing at his social anxiety). Just Imagine yourself trying to play serious guys drunk..

The only DeMar dunk that was really nice was against Utah where he spun in the paint and dunked it with 3 or 4 Jazz players around him
