Besides copious amounts of food and weight-gaining, Thanksgiving also provides a veritable smorgasbord of highlight-worthy sports, especially from the world of college basketball. Starting last week and continuing on until Christmas, there are about a thousand different pre-conference basketball tournaments — fertile ground for athletes who make dunking over defenders look like one of the easiest things to do in sports.
Even though the 2008-09 season is still in its early stages, there have already been some spectacular dunks; so many in fact, there’s already a couple of debates brewing about the dunk of the year and who is the best dunker in college — and just think, conference play hasn’t even started yet. With that in mind, who is the best dunker in college basketball?
Is it Chris Wright from Dayton? Paul George from Fresno? How about Duke’s Gerald Henderson? Being the good soldiers we are, we’ve collected some of these “preseason” dunks to help you along with such a decision.
