Did I miss something?
"James faced two defenders in his immediate vicinity"

Last I checked, there are supposed to be five players on the floor for any given team. Which would seem to imply he did not dunk over three of them.

This isn't meant to ignite Jordan v. LeBron, but "dunked on" used to mean that the defender challenged the shot. Not "grew alligator arms when anyone elevated in the painted area"

So does that mean every time anybody dunks, you can say they "dunked over all of 'em"?

Who are the Timberwolves? Is this some sort of exhibition game in Europe?

I was actually just making a joke about how  Minnesota doesn't exactly apply themselves on defense.  I agree that "dunked on" should mean an attempt to stop it was made, but of course that's what has led to defensive players running in the other direction so they don't get caught "defending" a highlight dunk

I think that's more a function of the refs than the desire to avoid being on a poster. Its LeBron. I'm pretty sure he drew a shooting foul on fan last year because the guy was looking at him too hard.

You have obviously been watching the T-Wolves for a few years. Jimmy Butler didn't take that long to come to the same conclusion.

As She Serrano likes to say, he dunked the skeleton out of Embiid's body.

That said, dunks should be worth three points, too. Anyone can shoot the current three-pointers. Get the GD ball back in the paint and play men's basketball. No one likes watching guys just sit outside and be rewarded for being unable to drive or play post ball.

That said, yeah, this isn't dunking over anyone. It's a bunch of T-Wolves refusing to be dunked on, so they scurry like the weaklings Jimmy Butler said they were.

dunks should be worth 1 point.  Though interesting they are the easiest basket to make.

They are not the easiest basket to make when you consider the full play. They are scored at a point which is easiest for a team to defend.

Any team can jack up 50 threes a game; no one's getting 50 dunk attempts per game even though every offense would love that many dunks.

A little late for that. Have you not heard of the new freedom of movement rules? That and the shot clock resetting to 14 on an offensive rebound means bombs away. Get used to it.

You know who's going to be dunking and raining threes soon?

Last I checked the defender had to be in the restricted circle and jumping to block it before you can say they got dunked on.

/Still a nice dunk tho.

Eh, you can also get dunked on if you're on the ground and get jumped over or get the dunker's nuts in your face. But yeah, you gotta go through a dude.

Also, this is what you would do if you thought "y'know, I want to see more soft layups."

Go watch the WNBA if you think dunking should be devalued.
