Whos the Second Best Dunker In Raptors History?

As much as some of you may not like him theres no disputing that Vince Carter is the best dunker in Raptors history but who do you consider second best?

Keon threw down some nasty dunks in games, hes up there, and Jamario can obviously throw down some nice dunks too and depending on what else he has in store for us he could top this list . . . but for now its easily Tmac, he was so nasty when he was younger . .

I'm going to go with Neon Keon Clark. His dunks in Toronto were just so powerful. Every Keon dunk was the definition of a monster jam.

Joey G has had some nasty ones, the best one I remember was the one on Carlos Delfino. That made me twitch.

The only other Raptor to be invited to the Slam Dunk competition, imo.

I read that Moon was throwing up some nice dunks during the pre-game warmup at MSG and might be invited to the dunk contest at least according to this writer. Wonder if anybody has video highlights of those?

From Newsday:
"Toronto's Jamario Moon, for one, is expected to be a dynamic addition to the contest this season. He put on a show during pregame warm-ups that had the Garden crowd engaged."

Come on...Tracy McGrady no question IMO. I remember his first season when he played in the Naismith Cup...He came baseline n' dunked on Cherokee Parks...


EDIT: And Rod Black screamed like he'd seen a Elvis Stoyko do a backflip :rofl:

It's not even close ... McGrady by a 1000 miles ... he was an "in traffic" dunker ... the most memorable dunks for me, versus Chicago slamming over Kornel David and riding him, then there was the facial over Patrick Ewing in the '00 playoffs ... Jamario Moon, while he plays with the same type of flare, hasn't had a facial that I recall, he's had some nice alley-oops and breakaways, but nothing in traffic ... On a side note, I think Chuck overexaggerates most slams to be "posterizations" ...

How is this even a question?

T Mac's breakaway dunks aren't that great, but he has had nearly as many memorable facials since he left the Raptors as Vince (over the same period).

Keon Clark, his dunks were the definition of "Sick, Wicked, and Nasty!"

when I saw the thread title I wondered if anyone would throw his name out. Not sure if he's number 2 (its hard to beat T-Mac) but he definitely belongs in the discussion.

Soooo... there are 13 newbies. Moon is nowhere near the finisher Tracey was here. I still remember that dunk he threw down on Kornel David on the break! :rofl:

Keon Clark is second. That dunk in the playoffs over Felton Spencer sticks out in my mind.
