Charlotte Hornets celebrate Nickelodeon night

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last night the Charlotte Hornets hosted the Phoenix Suns and came away with a decisive 126-92 win. Coincidentally, or maybe it was no coincidence, last night the Hornets hosted Nickelodeon night, a celebration of the TV network so many kids in America grew up watching.

The Rugrats were there, in person and on the gear…

Kel Mitchell (from “Keenan and Kel” fame) was there as the evening’s host…

Halftime featured a Double Dare competition…

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!

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…

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…

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!

The Phoenix Suns try to spell Mirza Teletovic

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — This is forward Mirza Teletovic‘s first season with the Phoenix Suns, but as you can see in the video below, he apparently hasn’t been around long enough for the majority of players on the team — we see you Brandon Knight! — to learn how to spell his name. My favorite attempt might be from Archie Goodwin Sonny Weems, who goes with “Televv” as the last name…

The Phoenix Suns Gorilla has your tricks and treats

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Getting candy for Halloween? It’s a right, a tradition, something everyone enjoys. Getting pranked on Halloween? Yeah, that’s part of the day, too. And leave it to Phoenix Suns mascot The Gorilla to scare the living daylights out of some unsuspecting people. Getting free candy seems like a pretty sweet deal. A disembodied gorilla hand rising up from under the candy bowl? Well, that’s just scary. TRICK OR TREAT!
