Indiana Pacers: Paul George 45.8%

Paul George’s performances in the dunk contest are criminally underrated – don’t sleep on his reverse through-the-legs dunk in 2014 – but what cements his place as the Pacers’ all-time dunker is, simply, the Birdman poster. Sure, his slam dunk contest win preceded it – he took home the trophy with an Isaiah “J.R.” Rider-inspired between-the-legs dunk – but his best dunks came when it mattered. Dave McMenamin

Others receiving votes: Shaquille O’Neal 28%, Eddie Jones 4%

Memphis Grizzlies: Ja Morant 50%

Ja Morant’s most memorable highlight might be a missed dunk after leaping over 6-10 Kevin Love, who joked on Twitter, “Ja almost ended my professional career with this dunk.” Morant has already dunked on plenty of bigs, most notably then-Suns center Aron Baynes, the victim of a vicious, off-the-dribble, tomahawk dagger in a close game. His signature dunk, a reverse double-pump dunk, became a go-to move for future dunkers in the competition.
