As we count down the final hours until tip-off of the 2016/2017 NBA season, the NBA released a pretty cool compilation of NBA “stars” — from Air Jordan to Aaron Gordon — popping their cherry with their first dunk in the NBA.
All of the dunks are regular-season ones, so I thought it would be interesting to show some of the first dunks these players had with a NBA team (from summer league to preseason). But before we get to those, let’s look at the video the NBA saw three months ago that inspired them to make one of their own.
