Remember Tyrus Thomas? The Blazers selected him with the 4th overall pick in the 2006 draft and then traded him to the Bulls for LaMarcus Aldridge (seriously).

Thomas was raw talent, mainly known for being a fantasy tease and an athletic freak that dunked on people or got dunked on on a nightly basis for 7 seasons. He’s been out of the league for the past 2, but after a couple of decent D-League games, the Memphis Grizzlies are ready to give him another shot by signing him to a 10-day contract.

In honor of his return, here’s my 3¬†favorite dunks by him.

and favorite 2 dunks on him.
