To the basketball critic, dunking is like fashion or art: It’s all about personal preference and aesthetic opinion.

Still, I’m not getting how Dominique Wilkins is currently last-place in today’s DimeMag.com poll: “Who was the better in-game dunker?” behind Vince Carter, Michael Jordan and Shawn Kemp. If you ask me, ‘Nique should at least be ahead of MJ. But that’s just me.
