Suns Legends Dunk Contest: KJ or Chambers?
Posted: Oct. 31, 2011
With our intern surfing YouTube all day anyway, we decided to put him to work and find some of the best forgotten dunks in Suns history. So in the first matchup of our "Suns Legends Dunk Contest," we're going to pit a slam from Kevin Johnson against a throwdown from Tom Chambers. Check out their respective jams and tell us which one you liked best.|
KJ was the first to jump over a "Hot Rod.".
Everyone remembers Suns point guard Kevin Johnson for his sweet assists and unrivaled quickness in the lane. And you probably also remember him for his ability to viciously dunk on big men.
The first one that comes to everyone's mind was his posterization of superstar center Hakeem Olajuwon. But as we dug through the annals, we discovered this little gem that he had on "Hot Rod" Williams.
Not only is the dunk itself superb, but the finish is equally as entertaining.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
Chambers stuffs it over the entire Lakers defense.
Big men like Tom Chambers don't often get credit for their dunking prowess, but you can't help but to give the 6-10 Chambers credit for some of his infamous jams.
The one that always comes to mind with Chambers was the time he actually soared over the Knicks' Mark Jackson. But one of his jams that always seems to get overlooked was his reverse slam over the Lakers.
Think about it. The guy not only dunked over the best team in the NBA at the time, but he did it backwards.
