There is a lot of "Who's the GOAT" going around lately, but here's another question: Who's the best dunker of all time? Forget every other aspect of the game, just focus on dunks. Who is the best? Vice Carter? Michael Jordan? Dr. J?
John Mayes

I may not be a basketball fan if it's wasn't for the Raptors and Vince Carter. It's too bad his time in Toronto had to end the way it did
Brooks Coleman
this is the only thing vince ever took seriously
No one will ever do the dunks Aaron Gordon did, but everyone already done what pipsqueek done 100 times over.

Itll take a freak accident to see anything as good.

How the Chicago Bulls self-destructed after Vince Carter’s iconic Dunk 2 days ago   13:07

When the game's best player and best coach leave you in the same offseason, the only way to go is down. Fast.

In 1998, the Chicago Bulls won yet another championship: an incredible SECOND three-peat for the team built by Jerry Krause, coached by Phil Jackson, and led by Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. But for all their glory, the team was in disarray. When the deeply disgruntled Jackson left town, Jordan followed him, and Krause was left to pick up the pieces.

... and by "pick up the pieces," we mean swiftly hurl all the pieces into the abyss and start rebuilding from scratch. But rebuilding, it turns out, isn't always easy.

This is the story of how the Bulls followed one of the NBA's most impressive peaks with a valley just as impressive in its steepness and depth. This is the rapid collapse of one of history's greatest teams.
