7 dunks better than DeAndre Jordan’s slam over Brandon Knight (videos)

Dunks like this is usually the exclusive territory of acrobatic sky-walker Blake Griffin.

But when Los Angeles Clipper’s center DeAndre Jordan’s one-handed alley-oop dunk over his victim, Brandon Knight, it became an immediate Internet sensation that nearly overloaded Twitter and other social media platforms.

But Knight is eight inches shorter and some 80 pounds lighter than Jordan, which subtracts from its real impact. Not to take away from Jordan’s eye-popping feat, but Griffin’s monster slam over Kendrick Perkins, who is comparable to Griffin in height and size, was much more impressive.

Besides there are other dunks in the annals of NBA history that have more gravity, had more impact and still awe those who see them.

Here are dunks that are better than DeAndre Jordan’s.
