In honor of Thursday night’s NBA Draft, we rank the 10 best dunkers that this class has to offer.
*** *** ***
10. Jabari Parker, Duke
Although Parker’s athleticism is not highlighted when talking about his immense NBA potential, the former Duke star can certainly get up. While this part of his game may be overshadowed by athletic freak Andrew Wiggins – to whom he is constantly compared – Parker boasted his dunking ability on multiple occasions throughout his 35 collegiate games. Don’t believe us? See for yourself:
9. Jerami Grant, Syracuse
Predicted to be a late first-round pick, Grant will instantly become a fan favorite due to his leaping ability and length. The forward features a huge wingspan of 7-3, allowing him to sky for passes and rebounds and convert dunks that others simply cannot.
8. Adreian Payne, Michigan State
Despite suffering through an ankle sprain as a senior, Payne surely inflicted plenty of pain on the rim during his tenure at Michigan State. Aside from winning the College Slam Dunk Contest, he used his explosiveness during game-competition to slam home dunks in the paint, bullying defenders with strength and explosiveness down-low.
