Exhibit A: Rudy Gay
Exhibit B: AI2
Dime – i see you are trying to offer videos within the same timelength, however consider the sample sizes.
Rudy Gay shown 10 dunks
Iggy shown close to 50 dunks.
There are plenty of youtube links that do “top 10 dunks by….”. Please either make both contestants “top 10” or the “compilation” so its fair. Those would be better for an equal sample size and not potentially sway the vote.
With that said, I’d still vote for Iggy’s body of work.
Andre “I got robbed” Iguodala.
Andre , the guy is on another level
Iggy Iggy Iggy, that dunk off the back of the backboard was the shit.
@Eric — I always try to find identical clips, but in this case, there was no Iguodala “Top 10” that included his Dunk Contest work and some of his more recent dunks. Similarly, the longer Rudy Gay clips I found didn’t include the summer-league dunk over Yi or the Scola/Mutombo dunk. But I still think both clips give you an idea of each guy’s repertoire.
Andre’s brother Frank can fly as well , I saw him play in college a few years ago in the Atlantic 10
I agree wit eric… AI2 got music and special effects.. and a ton more dunks.
But this one is a hard one… they are both athletic as hell.. id go AI2
Not even close its Rudy Gay
Definately Rudy Gay, I find his dunks look very similar to when Lebron James dunks it, the way he cocks it back to far.
Dime : You guys should do a best team not to win the NBA title recently with the 2000 Blazers and the 2002 Kings
I agree with Eric, bad choice of videos.. or if there isn’t a good enough ONE then put two for each. Not including Rudy’s college dunks wasn’t fair, and that was a crappy vid of Iggy.
It’s called “YouTube” and “your memory.” I’m just putting up samples.
i think these 2 are tied
playin Chris brown to a dunk mix??
Yea i i feel u Austin….. my bad
Kenyon Martin (back in his NJ days) vs KG or someone
Rudy has the best two dunks of the players, but Dre I is the better overall dunker. People aren’t foolish enough to think they can muscle him or jump with him at this point. Rudy caught to “green” international players in their first years pretty bad…Nasty, but Dre I is about two inches shorter and has more power with as much ups…
Little better video. Has Dre I’s behind the back dunk…
Dre I Cocks it back crazy too. Usually in a mini windmill style…
Iguodala is better than everyone in the league not named Vince Carter…Josh Smith is a signature dunk and some ball handling from taking the top spot…
@ Austin – “It’s called youtube and your memory” hahahaah, well said.
Man, folks have been beating up on Dime lately. It may be a slow time in the NBA and people are bitching about it, but looks like everybody is still logging onto dimemag.com!
Keep up the good work Austin!
rudy’s clip wasnt that impressive except for the last 2 or 3. iggy gets the nod jus for a dunk i saw him ALMOST pull off (behind the back in mid air, think it was at a charity game in canada) sick
Diego I second that. Lotta cats just trying to find a reason. Like Wayne said (neva thought I would quote him) “They hatin like a city cop”.
Anyway In game wise and Dunk contest wise you got to go A.I.
Very few cats that can bring it in game and in the contest legit.
i dont even have to watch this videos, its no contest andre winss my a mile
you don’t see AI posterizing people in games like Rudy. Yes he had the better dunk contest dunks, that behind the backboard thing was crazy, but Rudy has had nastier dunks in games. Rudy is the better dunker.
In a game setting Rudy is better and it isn’t even close. The top of Rudy’s jump puts his hand about 2 feet above the rim.
Rudy makes his dunks look way more effortless and easy. AI dunks with more authority and power but more so b/c he is much smaller and not as fluid as Rudy. So i guess it is just a matter of which type of dunker you like. Both are athletic dunkers but Id have to say Rudy is the more skilled dunker and AI uses more raw power.
I thought this was going to be closer, but iggy does more dunks, and is lacking in size compared to Rudy. Rudy makes shit look too easy. When iggy crowns somebody it always looks so much worse than when Rudy does it.
AI2 wins this contest by a long shot. Iggy has some crazy dunks on some top bigs in the NBA, and he cocks that shit way back. If you want evidence of this, I advise people to watch some more clips of Iggy.
I know this is an old topic, but that’s bullshit that AI2 lost the dunk contest to Nate Robinson, seriously who gives a damn if he’s 5 foot 9 and he can dunk.
All that second video does is make me dislike Nate even more . . .
AI without a doubt.
A.I. wins this. Behind the backboard dunk, enough said.
How about Baron vs. Franchise? Or Gerald Green vs. JR Smith?
“Kenny Smith is a diabolical hater!”
coz rudy’s a gay…
by the way, both ain’t got jack against the pat garrity mixtape…
AI…HOWEVER U WANT IT, HE HAS THE ADVANTAGE OVER GAY…QUANTITY, POWER ATHLETICISM, UPS, FINESSE…
I got to go with Iguadola I’m glad you put this up here though because I had been reading about how Rudy gets it in during games, but this was the first time I watched it, Rudy definitely does his thing.
davis versus franchise would make for a good debate. I would go with boom-dizzle on this onr.
see for yourself:
Yeah…Im going with Rudy Gay.
