    My favorite Wilkins quote (about the brother). "If Gerald Wilkins were better at finishing on the fast break, he would be a decent one-dimensional player."

    'niqe was amazing to watch, but I was never a huge fan of his overall game.

    Exactly right. Zero nostalgia for 90's basketball. Teams play pretty complicated team defense these days.

    I don't argue that D is less prevalent recently--with the rule changes for zones, you allow for leas on the ball press and more willingness to allow shooters better long looks. But the move from physical to borderline mugging did no one any favors and skilled teams like Houston or San Antonio still overcame the Force style.

    Love the Dikembe vid and that he made people want to try and dunk on him.

    That dunk on Bird was the nuts. He sat there for a moment and I know what he was thinking.

    It was more than that.

    Agents tell their guys not to be in the poster. Dikembe was immutable. The finger wag meant that no posterization would stick.

    Now, Kendrick Perkins, not so much. I still think of him getting straddled, even though I love him.

    The # 5 dunk is amazing, double clutch two handed jam in traffic.

    well, while the Knick are busy sinking, I'm on a nostalgic dunks trip.

    This is for Dopey. Physically, Kemp was like a LeBron but he did not have LeBron's basketball skills. I can't recall though, anyone that was as relentless as him once he decided he was going to the basket and I still have not seen anyone dunk on a reverse like Kemp did. He made it seem like a layup.

    I was never a big Clyde fan, that Portland team was so unlikeable (Porter/Kersey) but I think he was an underrated player as people got caught up in all the dunks and stuff but the man could dunk. I think in one of the dunks here he takes off at the free throw line.

    Good stuff. More's the shame he went and turned into Terry Forster.
