Dunked On: 15 Footwear and Facial Combinations of the 2000′s

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15

It’s a great time to be a basketball fan, right? During the past two days, we have seen some of the most incredible dunks in a very long time. Footage of LeBron James hurdling John Lucas III and Blake Griffin ‘Mozgoving’ Kendrick Perkins has basketball enthusiasts and non-basketball fans simply in awe. Many of you have compared these dunks to Vince Carter’s timeless Olympic dunk and other memorable jams. Do the most recent ones compare to the old posters? Revisit our Dunked On: 15 Footwear and Facial Combinations of the 2000s feature to compare.

Today, Nike Basketball released Blake Griffin’s Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 “10.0″ PE, a sneaker that quickly sold out earlier this morning. Griffin’s Hyperdunk 2011 PE was just one of the many moments we saw from him this past season (just ask Timofey Mozgov). We have witnessed a ton of memorable facials over the years from the likes of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade and many more; however, do you remember the footwear worn during these nasty facials? Our Nice Kicks staff compiled a list of the top footwear and facial combinations during the 2000s. In this feature, you will see Kobe Bryant doing a whirling dervish in his Air Jordan 8 PEs, Chris Paul serving a facial on Dwight Howard in his Air Jordan 5 PEs and many more moments. Take a look at our Dunked On: 15 Footwear and Facial Combinations of the 2000s.

        people underestimate da shit out of J.R. he really is one of the best in the nba of course aint gonna b shit compared to what vince did but look at all the dunks?jr smith does in a game is like watchin the dunk contest?

    2. Michael Pang says:

      LOL!!! I just got the XIs in 2k11 haha. JR Smith probably upped his dunk rating to 99

  1. Stfu says:

    I knew it! It gotta be Vince Carter… ;P

  2. R E E says:

    Vince’s clearing of a 7 footer is the most legendary dunk EVER. People will talk about that for DECADES until somebody else does it BETTER. But that’s gonna be highly unlikely so with that said… it’s the Greatest Dunk of All Time…PERIOD.?

    Blake put on an all out CLINIC that game. And the sad thing is that was just two out of like 5 more dunks in the same game.

    Wade over Varejao is one of the sickests and funniest dunks all time. It comes out of NOWHERE. Dwayne Wade has what’s called SNEAKY hops. He elevates to DUNK when you think he’s going in for a layup. But what makes the dunk funny is the way Varejao hit the back padding when he got knocked down and then D Wade straight STEPS OVER HIM. lol. CLASSIC.

    all in all VERY NICE LIST. No arguments here EXCEPT the Kobe’s dunk over Dwight Howard. That was VICIOUS. Waaaaay more vicious than the Melo over Milsap. Kobe is 6’7 splitting defenders and then CRUSHING a 7 footer. I think Melo is actually TALLER than Milsap.?

    Either way…this was ENTERTAINING.?

    1. whodi says:

      THANK you

  3. swagmcmuffin says:

    Dwayne Wade was so disrespectful, you know for a fact he did not have to step over Varejao like that. He went out of his way to do that shit. Now when Iverson did that over Lue, it’s a different story.

    1. Prchewwin says:

      cuz Varejao is a B!tch he tried to go after Wade. like a GUMP!

    The Lebum dunk on Jones was alright but Shaq view on it made it better

  7. Conor Levey says:

    Might be the best list you guys have put together. I agree that Taj mighta been worthy of this list. Of course, he wasn’t exactly wearing anything special, but neither was Blake.
