Cheez & Rice!
It's a phenomenal dunk, no doubt about it. Not trying to be too old-fashioned here, but I do think it's a sad reflection of sports in society today that that dunk has gotten so much air time in the last 24 hours. With everything else going on in sports right now, I think it's sad that ESPN led off Sportscenter with that dunk. You've got clutch, game-winning shots happening right and left in college basketball, NBA teams that are playing great ball as a team, etc...and that dunk gets the nod.
Glad I stopped watching Sports Center.
Why did they call a foul? Really? I would have just let it go, at least he made an attempt to block it or intercept the pass.
I personally think this one is better. Not an alley oop, but they were down by 1, less than 3 mins left in the game, and he did it over one of the best shot blockers in the league instead of a little fella.

Along the lines of what I was saying above, here's a great column from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Couldn't agree with him more.
From Yahoo! Sports: Brandon Knight has become a target for jokes after he tried to keep DeAndre Jordan from dunking. The unfortunate message to other players? Run away and hide.
not even close bro
You don't even watch the nba bro.
The dunk itself wasn't better than Jordan's, but with all of the other factors at play, I think you've got a pretty good argument. Jordan dunked over someone much smaller than him in the middle of a blowout, whereas the game was on the line when Kobe did it and it was against a much bigger/better player.
true, but that doesn't change the fact that kobes dunk wasn't nearly as impressive as jordans
