Top 5 / Top 10

Derrick Rose’s career right now is a big IF.

What if he turns out like Michael Jordan for the Bulls and gets his side a handful of NBA championships, scoring and dishing and stealing and dunking his way through a decade-long reign in the NBA ?


What if the torn ACL  robs him of all his explosiveness, and what was earlier a possible Hall of Famer career turns out to be just another ‘What if ?’ career. (Hello Greg Oden.)

We just don’t know yet, but we also will never forget Goran Dragic, who is in the video below for all the wrong reasons.

But let just put our worries aside about his injury and think of it as a just an inspiration point for D-Rose to come back even stronger.

Derrick Rose is clearly the be(a)st dunking point guard in NBA, so much so that if you would look up explosive in the dictionary, a picture of Derrick Rose would surely pop up.


Similarly, if you saw a whole Chicago Bulls game, you’d definitely see Rose popping out at the rim with a force you’d never have seen before.

That guy is a absolute athletic freak.

Derrick Rose hasn’t still played in a competitive game since April, and he’s cried over it, so watch out for him when he comes back. He’s going to kill ‘em.

Keep an eye out for the remaining spots in the list of the top 10 dunkers, as we countdown to the guy who slams the ball home the best in the NBA.

8. Dwyane Wade
9.  JaVale McGee
10. Josh Smith
