Remember when the NBA invited Eric Gordon to compete in that ridiculous dunk-in with DeMar DeRozan for the final spot in 2010 NBA Dunk Contest? It’s understandable if you forgot. It’s also easy to forget that the Houston three-point specialist has poster-making abilities and once made a nice one with Tim Duncan in the bottom half.
On Tuesday, the Sixth Man of the Year scored 24 points off the bench. while surprisingly missing all six of his three-point attempts. He had a lot more success going to the rim, which shot-blocking specialist Jordan Bell found out during the first quarter of his NBA career.
So where does this dunk rank among his best? Since it came in a win against the defending champs and I love “welcome to the league” plays, I’m going to put it right behind his dunk on Tim Duncan (last dunk in the Top 5 Dunks video) and his “Oh me, Oh my” dunk against the Spurs in 2010.
Actually, I’m going to have to push his dunk on Bell to #4 because this poster from EG’s high school days belongs in the top 3.
