Victor Oladipo’s double pump poster dunk on the Atlanta Hawk’s Dwight Howard on Monday brought back some great 80’s memories for older Hawks fans, like me. The first thing I thought of after watching Dwight’s life almost end by the 6’4 Oladipo was a few dunks by The Human Highlight Film Dominique Wilkins, who just happened to be at the game doing commentary.
No player in the history of basketball was better at dunking on defenders after a double-pump than Nique – just ask 7’4 Mark Eaton (#5), 6’10 Bob Lanier (#1) and whoever the tall white guy is at #9.
