Hey, the NBA All-Star Game was last night. You know what that means: not much defense (final score: West over East, 143-138). And you know what that means: great players doing ridiculous things on offense, unencumbered by the efforts of opponents. Often, these easy points manifest themselves in the form of dunks, because the All-Star Game is nothing if not a couple hours of pure showmanship, and it doesn’t get much more showy in basketball than giant dunks.
