We can’t remember an NBA season in recent memory that was littered with more exciting plays, buzzer beaters, blocks, and dunks than 2009-10. With that said there was a special sort of dunk that has re-emerged this season. The ‘in your grill’, nasty, ‘you got dunked on’, type.
Over the last few years we have seen a decline in the number of defenders that are willing to rise up and attempt to contest a dunker for a block.
