Posterized Poll

POSTERIZED POLL Week of Feb. 5

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Like we always do at this time, let’s take a look at the best instances of people getting #POSTERIZED over the last week and, at the bottom of the post, you can place your vote for a winner. And don’t forget, if you see someone get posterized, tweet it with the hashtag #POSTERIZED so we don’t miss it!

I missed last week’s #POSTERIZED poll because I was traveling, working on a cool piece for NBA TV (coming soon!). Which means more dunks than usual this week!

Let’s get to the dunks. Special shoutout to the previous winner, Sacramento’s Rajon Rondo!

Let’s get right to it this week. Special shoutout to last week’s winner, Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan!

OK, let’s get to the POSTERS…so many entrants this week, perhaps our strongest poll yet from top to bottom, including a special double dose of the great Boban Marjanovic(more…)

Quick second to send a shoutout to LeBron James. Not only did LeBron make a strong POSTERIZED appearance this week (see the poll below), but he also paid something of a POSTERIZED tribute to legendary power forward Karl “The Mailman” Malone. Check out this breakaway dunk against the Dallas Mavericks…

LeBron didn’t exactly dunk on anyone, so for our purposes it doesn’t qualify for the poll. But LeBron did do a dunk that Karl Malone put on numerous posters throughout his career…

Anyway, there were a bunch of terrific POSTERIZING dunks this week. Special shoutout to last week’s winner, New York’s Kristaps Porzingis!

OK, let’s get to the POSTERS…where one of Porzingis’ fellow rookies, Jahlil Okafor, didn’t have the best of weeks… (more…)

Before we get to the NBA posters, let’s take a moment and give a shoutout to the NBA D-League, which is currently gathered in Santa Cruz, California, for their annual D-League Showcase. Jaron Johnson plays for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, and while he may not be in the NBA quite yet, I think we can all agree that his POSTERIZING skills are NBA worthy for sure…

Special shoutout to last week’s winner, Boston’s Marcus Smart, who narrowly defeated Utah’s Alec Burks in his attempt to get back-to-back POSTERIZED POLL wins.

OK, let’s get to the POSTERS…

By the way, welcome to 2016! I’m thinking we’ll continue with weekly #POSTERIZED polls until we get a little closer to the All-Star break, and then we’ll round up all the previous winners and crown a first half champ. We can do the same with the second half of the season, and then have a poll to select an overall winner as well.

Special shoutout to last week’s winner, Utah’s Alec Burks, as he goes for back-to-back wins this week. And let me say right here, I understand that Burks’ dunk this week generated some controversy — was it technically a dunk? Did he just throw the ball through the basket?

The beauty of the #POSTERIZED Poll is that it doesn’t even really matter. Did a player put someone else on a poster? Then that’s good enough for us!

OK, let’s get to the POSTERS…

Special shoutout this week to Kristaps Porzingis, who may be a rookie but still had the presence of mind last night to duck out of the way of LeBron James to avoid getting #POSTERIZED. And even then he still ended up in the picture…

It’s the holiday season, so someone give a big present to last week’s winner, DeAndre Jordan!

Plenty of great entries this week. Let’s go to the posters, and don’t forget to vote for the winner…

A quick honorable mention this week to Rajon Rondo, who has a terrific dunk last week against the Knicks, his first dunk in years. But try as I might, I don’t believe we can count this as a #POSTERIZED dunk, as you can clearly see Carmelo Anthony wisely get out of the way as he realizes Rondo is trying to put him on a poster.

Either way, nice dunk. Besides, there are some great entries this week with people getting directly dunked on.

Oh, and before we get to all the latest dunks, congratulations to last week’s winner, Kevin Garnett!

Now, let’s go to the posters, and don’t forget to vote for the winner…

Last week the POSTERIZED POLL went on a bit of a forced hiatus, as I had to spend POSTERIZED TUESDAY going back and forth to Philadelphia for Kobe Bryant‘s final appearance in his hometown. Which means we have more dunks than usual to sort through, which is a good thing.

And in honor of Kobe’s retirement announcement, let’s take a throwback look at the time Kobe #POSTERIZED the great Yao Ming

Finally, before we get to all the latest dunks, congratulations to last week’s winner, DeMar DeRozan!

This week the Posterized Poll is dedicated to the patron saint of POSTERIZING, the great Dikembe Mutombo. Tonight the Atlanta Hawks host the Boston Celtics (8:00 p.m. EST, TNT), and during a special ceremony the Hawks will retire Mutombo’s number 55 jersey. Mutombo had plenty of highlights during his time with the Hawks, as you can see in the video below.
