    Default Best dunk ever in Greece

    Was performed by Dimitris Papanikolaou. Even Sirigos was impressed.

    If the thread would be named best dunk of a greek (born and raised in Greece) I would agree that Papanikolaou was very capable in this part of the game. The young Dimitris Papanikolaou was full of energy and bold like hell. But the older he got the more scared and weak he looked. I remember one scene were he had the ball in the hand and was looking around moving his head like a frightened chicken not knowing what to do next and how to avoid an error.

    Then I am sorry. I didn't get the sarcasm. Of course I saw the video. It is not a 360 dunk and Syrigos doesn't sound very impressed. Anyway I saw the thread and was expecting to find Kerusch's dunk.

    I remember a dunk of Tapoutos with Near East, when he was around 19: the guy had a windmill in transition that everybody in Kaisariani thought the arena would have collapsed. Opponents were quite bad (sort of Dafni, if I remember well: it was the period I lived in Athens and went to watch three-four games every weekend, some of those were real absurdities) but dunk itself anyway astonishing.
    Another great dunker was Ford: vs AEK (40 points game for him) he add one in traffic, despite the defense of Hatzis (!!!!). He left him on his feet and then almost destroyed the basket (and the help of Ntikoudis if I remember well) with a devastanting two-hands jam. He had a similar one vs Olympiacos, but the help came from Radja (with whom Ford had some issues the precedent season).
