ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — As part of our ongoing attempts to chronicle every time someone in the NBA gets POSTERIZED, in order to have a most perfect Posterized Poll when that time comes, I’m doing my best to keep up with every posterization happening throughout the season.
Last night there were a couple of nice entrants in our contest. But before we get to that, one bit of business to attend to: In my post yesterday, I posited that dunks over someone’s back shouldn’t count as being posterized — to me, being posterized means being chest-to-chest with the dunker and still getting dunked on.
HOWEVA, after discussing this last night at the Bucks/Nets game with my main man Ohm Youngmisuk from ESPN, I believe I have changed my mind. Sure, someone getting dunked on chest-to-chest is generally more spectacular, but you can still make a poster out of someone getting dunked on over their back. So, going forward, anyone getting dunked on is fair game for POSTERIZED.
To the dunks! First, one day after Avery Bradley sort of dunked on LaMarcus Aldridge, Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis definitely dunked over LA…

Also, up in Minnesota, Andrew Wiggins went baseline and dunked in between Mason Plumlee and Meyers Leonard. (And nice dish from Ricky Rubio, too.)
