    Vince all the way.

    He is the head of the grand council made up of Wilkins, Kemp, Jordan, Pippen and a few other greats I've forgotten about.

    Stevie was nice but Baron was a tweener. He wasn't a manlet but he wasn't 6'9" either. Both of them could jump out the gym though

    I thought Baron was a couple inches taller but I could very well be wrong.

    46 or 48" IIRC. I thought the story was that 'Nique had the same vertical as Spud Webb.

    I had an SI in high school with a behind the backboard pic of 'nique dunking and I think he was looking down at the rim.

    Speaking of crazy verticals, David Thompson is going to get left out (thanks cocaine!) but he could grab a coin off the top of the backboard --- in reality that was bullshit.

    Are the street ball legends still a thing? Strikes me as something that was gold in the 80s and 90s but now the guys who have their shit together and are backed by Nike from age 10, AAU, and do camps 365 are just a lot better than the guys who hang out at the court and drink.

    Not that i know of. And 1 used to have an ESPN deal but I haven't seen one of those in 10 years. They don't even bother showing replays. AAu is kind of fahing too. These kids are going to private facilities now and working out with NBA dudes. Shoe companies are footing the bills.

    Obligatory streetball highlight since Skip is probably my best friend out of all the athletes I know:



    Notice who his shoes are signed by. His favorite player

    Let me go into my closet. I'll shoot you a few pics of some cool stuff on Skip including his jersey from the Rockets 22 game win streak

    Vince is the GOAT but Scottie Pippen deserves an honorable mention.

    No, Kobe was unbelievable in his early years. He and Lebron aren't on the same planet as dunkers.
    Doing basic dunks that you see in high school practices everywhere doesn't make you one of the greatest dunkers of all time. It just makes you one of the shortest dunkers of all time.

    Sorry, devil is in the details.

    Voted Jordan but VC probably has the single best dunk in a game and the best dunk contest performance.

    Richardson and Carter if we're talking dunk contests only, but Wilkins overall.

    In my opinion, the greatest dunker ever is Duncan the Kangaroo. He is the dunking daredevil.
