Lakers have lost twice. But again it's the preseason. Apparently, Kobe and Howard aren't playing at 100%.

They just need to get used to playing as teammates and not opponents.

Exactly. I know the preseason hasn't been a good look, but I'll reserve judgement until a couple of games into the season.

I thought he was going to jump over the top not the hood. But pretty good dunk I guess. 2012-2013, if I could pick I would pick:

Blake Griffin
Lebron James
John Wall
This one I couldn't make a decision but it could be either of these: Josh Smith, J.R Smith, Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant, or Russell Westbrook

I don't think so. It looks more like Baron Davis.

Mediocre choices, in my opinion. They're all good in-game dunkers (especially Rose, James, and Griffin), but as Griffin and countless other superstars have proved in the past few years, they just can't generate the kind of excitement that Vince Carter and a few others did ten years prior. Instead, what they need to do is bring in some professional dunkers and pit them against the best dunkers of the NBA. Two pro dunkers, two pro players. At the very least, that'd be cause for the NBA players to actually put on a worthwhile show, unless they want to be embarrassed by a few no-names. Or if they want to stay within the realms of the NBA, take the winner and the runner-up of the D-League contest instead, cuz Lord knows the D-League contests are infinitely better than the NBA ones.

I wasn't talking about all-time best dunkers. These ones seem to be the best current ones. We all know, Micheal Jordan, Dominque Wilkins, Vince Carter, and the other back in the day dunkers are better than today's.
