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.

Introducing Paul George

Hi, my name is — chicka, chicka — Paul George.

Get used to seeing his name because the Fresno State freshman is just now bursting on to the college basketball scene and with hops like that, this won’t be the last time you hear from him. Did I mention he was only a freshman?

Now, some are calling this the Dunk of the Year. I’m not sure if I’m ready to go quite that far yet, seeing how the season is a little over a week old and there’s bound to be a lot of eye-popping flushes. Hell, you never know. Maybe George will outdo himself. I mean, he does play in the WAC Conference. I’m sure he’ll have an abundance of chances.

In other news, George’s dunk was SportCenter’s play of the night on Tuesday. That’s a good start down the path of “Dunk of the Year.”
