    Also figured since things are slowing down now FA has pretty much calmed, might be worth starting up a little series where I get everyone listing out their favourite aspects of the game.

    So for example, I'll say, post up a video of your favourite dunk, or the worst performance you've seen etc etc and switch it up every now and then. Should hopefully get some good NBA memories flowing (And have an abundance of videos posted ) which beats discussing definitions.

    Thoughts or nah?

    Edit: Also, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzu...lEhjmTuuw/live this is a livestream of the USA vs Nigeria game which is starting soonish. You can also find a stream on the USA Mens Basketball FB page.

    Both of their jumpers are pretty unconventional in that the release of the ball for Steph often occurs whilst he's still bringing the ball up. It's why he gets shots which such an arc. Klay on the other hand doesn't dip the ball down to set up for the 3, he often catches and immediately starts to bring it up.

    And to be fair, Dray did admit just pressing the wrong button, which is entirely possible for anyone. Off the court he's a pretty nice guy.

    I thought it was just me who noticed that lol. He must have crazy upper body strength to do that. Part of why his release is so quick. Other than that though, Klay's form is 'textbook'.

    Alright, we'll kick off with the one posted above then, a nice easy one to start with. Let's go with pictures/videos/stories/whatever regarding your favourite NBA dunks of all time.

    They can be in a season/playoff game, or from the Dunk Contest/All Star Weekend, doesn't really matter

    As for the one above, Vince Carter is definitely gonna feature loads

    Here's a compilation by the way of the best 116 dunks from the season just gone. Great video imo, no crappy music on top or weird effects, just game and commentary with different replay angles.

    That dunk reminds me of another from the Miami era that was captured in probably one of the most dynamic NBA photos ever for me:
