The Ultimate Poster

According to Deadspin’s Emma Carmichael, this photo of Taj Gibson posterization of Dwyane Wade will replace Bruce Lee posters across America. Personally, I’ve replaced every contact photo on my iPhone with this picture. So if you call me, this is what I’ll see:

    I just don’t want this to become “The Dunk” John Starks type poster that was prevalent in NYC in the ’90s. I lived in NYC (and made a pretty penny betting on the Bulls against the Knicks) and this highlight of the Bulls rivalry (other than the worst playoff call in history-Hue Hollins on Scottie Pippen in 1994 Game 5)

    Here’s a link to the poster:

    Nice that it was over Wade and all, but the put-back dunk was much more authoritative (i.e. Kemp/Dominique/Griffn-like power).

    In any case, let’s hope that Taj continues to have a major impact on this series!

    Jake –

    While you’re right that Dawkins was a tremendously powerful dunker, they were usually two-handed, and aside from Rose’s two handed slams, I’m a sucker for the one-handed variety.

    Reach-back, one-handed dunks are particularly niiiice ….

    Really missed Stacy King in that moment–though I was playing him in my head. Taj is a beast!

    I hear you on that one, Bex.
    Here you go, a link to the play with Stacey King commentary.
