I will admit, Gerald Green's dunk was unreal. I think it's the dunk-of-the-year without question. When I first saw it, I immediately thought to myself, I may have just seen the best dunk of my lifetime. I quickly shouted to my wife, get over here, I think I just saw a dunk that topped any of VC's dunks. My wife was shocked because if anyone knows me, VC is my all-time favorite player (first son is named Carter). I watched it at least 20 times, and since it happened, maybe a total of 40 to 50 times. Clearly, what stands out more than anything else, was how high he got.
Now with all of that said, I have since re-watched VC's windmill dunks, and I have to say, no one has ever matched any of his top 5 windmill dunks, even Gerald Green's from last night. I attached a link to the best VC windmill alley-oop dunk in my opinion, and you have to look at his full extension of the windmill. Gerald kind of keeps it closer to his chest, while Vince let's it fly. I'm not trying to take anything away from Gerald, just wanted to point out how ridiculous VC's windmill dunks really were.
Regardless, I'm just glad the Nets have Green and I hope he can be a part of the team for the future.
