If you’re a fan of basketball – or athletic evolution – then watch this clip. Many are calling this dunk, “the greatest dunk in league history.” If you missed it, LD2k is dropping it for the world…

    what do u mean?

    I just said he was beastin.

  • droWzY

    Phant0M, you’re not a Basketball Fan. it looks like You’re Just a Lakers Fan. You’re crazy if you don’t like Dwight. Actually, you’re a moron, and i don’t talk to morons. I would give up Lamar odom And Andrew bynum.. ANY DAY FOR DWIGHT HOWARD!

  • maccassedy

    LO N BYNUM NO BUDDY..BUT THAT SUPERMAN SHIITT WAZ COOL

  • http://www.myspace.com/ericthaimyshoe Eric Thai

    LOL I was cracking up SO HARD because he didn’t even dunk it! He threw it in! Hahahah. Nice one Dwight.

  • Sako

    nice, but it wasn’t a dunk, he threw it in

  • Jack Nicholas

    That dunk was sick!

    bynum and LO for howard is stupid cuz bynum will develop into a better player than howard…

  • lakersforlife77

    How can you not like Dwight Howard?

  • Michael_23

    He should have worn red shoes. Then he’s be Superman! hahaha.

  • droWzY

    AS GOOD AS BYNUM IS JACK, DWIGHT HOWARD, WILL ALWAYS BE, ONE STEP AHEAD, OF ANDREW BYNUM. A TRUE BASKETBALL FAN, SAYS THE TRUTH, I Am NOT IN DENIAL, BYNUM ISNT AS ATHLETIC AS HOWARD, AND ISNT AS CONSISTENT.
    DWIGHT HOWARD ALSO HAS A WAY BETTER ATTITUDE, AND IS A TRUE CLASSY PERSON. WHEN IT WAS THE FIBA GAMES IN VEGAS, I WAS SITTING NEXT TO DWIGHT HOWARDS TABLE AT THE LUX CAFE @ THE VENETIAN. HE WAS SOOOO FUNNY I ALWAYS DROPPED MY DRINK. HE’S JUST MORE FUN TO WATCH. SORRY. I WILL ALWAYS BE A LAKER FAN. BUT HONESTLY, I AM ALSO A DWIGHT HOWARD FAN. DWIGHT HOWARD CAN BRING US A CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY WITHOUT ALL THE BAD ATTITUDE AND TRASH TALKING AND MOOD SWINGS THAT COME ALONG WITH BYNUM. I’M NOT GOING TO JUMP ON THE WAGON LIKE EVERYONE ELSE AND KISS BYNUMS ASS.. IT WASNT LONG AGO THAT EVERYONE WAS CRYING ON THIS SITE TO TRADE BYNUM FOR J KIDD OR ONEAL OR WUTEVER. I WAS HERE WHEN YOU GUYS TRASHED ON BYNUM, AND IM HERE NOW THAT YOU GUYS ARE PRACTICALLY HOLDING HIS NUTS FOR HIM. SORRY. THATS JUST MY OPINION.

  • http://lakers.com k0be da 1 andonly

    Let me just say this if i heard Bynum was traded straight up for howard , i wouldnt be dissapointed

  • LA fan in Manila

    That Superman dunk is crazy! I jumped out of my seat just to see that costume. Then he pulled it off, showing it in slow motion is just jaw dropping. WOW!

  • mikedeezy2k8

    he didnt even dunk it. technically it was a layup

  • LA fan in Manila

    but they gave it to him because of the creativeness, the buy in of the crowd and of course the costume.

  • Phant0M

    And people said im not a basketball fan.

    U fuccin idiots
    I never said he wasn’t good.

    nvm i got it lol

  • Tim

    Bynum will NEVER be better than Dwight Howard, jack nicholas

  • kobe4mvp

    I’m a huge fan of Bynum, but I would trade him and Odom for Dwight Howard in a heartbeat. Bynum is a future All star, But Howard is a future Hall of Famer. Can You imagine a future lineup of Farmar, Kobe, Ariza, Gasol, and Howard?

  • maccassedy

    DAMN IT WAS JUSS A DUNK CONTEST AND SOME OF U SO CALLED LAKER FANZ WOULD TRADE LO N BYNUM 4 D.HOWARD WOW B SERIOUS CUH..IT WAS JUSS A DUNK CONTEST HES A BETTA DUNKER THEN BYNUM AND REB THATS ALL CUH

  • WONG63

    they played gerald green for the birthday cake dunk….but anyway we need to get jamario moon change this site to getmoon.com please he needs to be in LA

  • BEC

    Just the superman thing deserved a perfect score alone. I think he knew he was coming up a little short so he kind of just threw it in. Great nonetheless.
    Lo and Bynum thats too much just for Dwight Howard, but id take Howard over bynum. Howards insanely strong, strongest man in the league, and much more athletic than Bynum. Although bynum does have better length and shoots ft better, so tough call really, cant go wrong either way.

  • dcb2069

    what does being a laker fan have to do with being willing to make that trade? oh thats right, laker fans are supposed to always stand by their their players unconditionally. like we did brian cook and kwame brown, right?

    for the record, id prefer not to make that trade. in a way its almost a lateral deal. but anyone except for kobe for howard? in a heartbeat.

  • e

    for a non-laker, dwight howard is prlly one of my favorites…that guy is a BEAST!!!!

  • maccassedy

    I LIKE DHOWARD..BUT AFTER HE KILLED AT DA DUNK CONTEST PEOPLE WANTS HIM ON DA LAKERS.. I’LL LOVE 2 SEE HIM WIT US..BUT KEEP DREAMIN IT WANT HAPPEN

    [Comment ID #26329 Will Be Quoted Here]

    Yeah, he looks like HGH, steroids, and genetic cloning all wrapped up into one. If so, I think all that stuff is great and we should encourage more kids to get into it. Sure, we might loose some people to suicide and organ failure, but isn’t it worth it to see great dunks like that?

    On the other hand, he might just be unbelievably blessed plus work out super hard. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.

    ITS PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT DEGRADE THIS WEBSITE. NO, I DIDN’T BECOME A DWIGHT HOWARD FAN JUST BECAUSE OF THE DUNK CONTEST. I’M A DWIGHT HOWARD FAN BECAUSE THE MAN KNOWS HOW TO PLAY BASKETBALL. SERIOUSLY, ITS SO PATHETIC WHEN INTERNET THUGS TYPE THE WAY THEY SPEAK. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? YOU’RE GOING TO ACTUALLY TYPE OUT ” CUH ” ? THATS FREAKING HILARIOUS. ANYWAYS, POINT IS.. I’VE ALWAYS LIKED DWIGHT HOWARD, I WANTED HIM TO WIN LAST YEARS SLAM DUNK AS WELL BUT IT DIDN’T HAPPEN. YOU SHOULD SEE THE CLIP ON YOUTUBE WHERE IT WAS MAGIC VS SPURS 106-106 4TH QUARTER WITH .08 SECONDS REMAINING.. DWIGHT CAUGHT A LOB THAT WAS THROWN FROM THE SIDELINE AND ROCKED THE HOUSE THROWING IT DOWN OVER TIM DUNCAN WITH A HUGE 1 HANDED TOMA-HAWK , THUS WINING THE GAME. THAT’S HOW YOU FINISH IN A GAME.. CAN BYNUM DO THAT? LEMME RE-PHRASE THAT, WOULD HE HAVE THE BALLS? OR WOULD KOBE EVEN TRUST HIM WITH THAT PLAY? DOUBT IT.. THIS MAN HAS A VERY HIGH IQ. KOBE BRYANT AND DWIGHT HOWARD ARE BY FAR MY FAVORITE BASKETBALL PLAYERS. I LOOK UP TO KOBE BRYANT BECAUSE OF HIS PASSION TO WIN AND EXCEL IN EVERY ASPECT OF THE GAME AND THE ABILITY TO COME OUT AND SCORE 25+ POINTS EVEN AT THE TIME OF INJURY. I LOOK UP TO HOWARD FOR HIS UNBELIEVABLE STRENGTH IN THE PAINT, ABILITY TO SCORE 20+ POINTS AND GRAB 15+ REBOUNDS IN A CONSISTENT FASHION, AND THAT GREAT SMILE OF HIS IS SURE TO ALWAYS MAKE YOU SMILE BACK. THIS MAN IS BRILLIANT. IT WOULD BE A GODSEND IF DWIGHT WAS EVER TRADED TO THE LAKERS. IF YOU WOKE UP TOMORROW MORNING, TURNED ON ESPN, AND SAW THAT THERE IS A POSSIBLE TRADE BETWEEN THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS AND THE ORLANDO MAGIC INVOLVING ANDREW BYNUM + CASH + PICKS IN EXHANGE FOR HOWARD, YOU REALLY WOULD GO AGAINST IT? HA! YOU’RE CRAZY.

    the whole superman drama thing was entertaining, but i thought this was a dunk contest.

    how can you get a perfect score on a dunk contest without even dunking it?

    makes no sense…

    But, his first dunk was off the charts and very creative.

    next year it should be dwight, vince, lebron, and kobe…and lets see the real dunkers bring the contest back to its true form.

    Trade Bynumite & L-O for ‘Superman’! LOL, I was cracking up (and so was everyone else in my house, including tyhat we had a party) when he put on the Superman suit, I literally was and still am jealous of the Magic for having such an athletic, DUNKING CRAZILY, great b-ball player like he is! There’re so much great things I can say about ‘Superman’, that I almost forget that we have Bynumite, LOL! Go Superman!

    Kobe can’t dunk the same as he used too, he even admitted it.
    But that’s a pretty sick dunking lineup

  • Tim

    hey maccasedy, i always wanted D Howard on the lakers

  • http://www.mr47.com mr47

    Someone went off about how everyone wanted bynum traded this season and i’m going to disagree. The majority of people here were for the trade to get Garnett, which MIGHT have changed. The majority of people here were not happy about trading bynum for JO or Jkidd, so get it right. Only kobe was whinin about that one :)

  • lalball81

    That dunk was awesome.

  • Ignard

    Everyone is saying how sick it was but he didn’t actually dunk it, he threw it in, so how is it a dunk? Please explain.

  • kb24lalaland

    its a dunk becuase a dunk is where your arms are above the rims and the ball goes in the net in a downwards motion. U dont have to touch the rim to make it a dunk

  • gugy

    This is the dunk explanation on wikipedia

    “A slam dunk (or simply a dunk) is a type of basketball shot that is performed when a player jumps in the air and manually powers the ball downward through the basket with one or both of his hands. This is a standard field goal worth two points. There is one component required for this particular “field goal” to be classified as a “dunk”: 1) the ball must be thrown into the basketball net in a downward motion where both the ball and player’s hand(s) are both above the basketball rim. The term “slam dunk” was first coined by the late Los Angeles Lakers announcer Chick Hearn.”

    so according to this Dwight superman act was a dunk.

    How can you say that Howard is better than Bynum when Howard has NO post up game. He’s just a pure power player. Have you seen Howard try to create a shot for himself in the post, it’s terrible! (Shaq at least has a post up game). Bynum has somewhat of an outside game. When Bynum is finished establishing his post up presence, then Howard will even have more trouble guarding him because Bynum is taller than Howard.

    With regards to his attitude, he may be a great guy but I think the NBA life is getting to his head. Even his coach, Stan Van Gundy, has called out Dwight Howard and has told him to play more defense, but for some reason Dwight Howard refuses to do so on a consistent basis. Bynum, with his massive wing span alters layups on a more consistent basis. D. Howard is a great player, but Bynum is not too far behind.

    bynum numbers per minute are just as good as howard’s… and better in blocks

    bynum 16/13/3/2 howard 20/14/2/1…pts,reb.blks and assists.. per 36 minutes plus bynum has better post moves, hands, higher ceiling and two years younger.

    lakers FO wouldn’t trade bynum for Howard.. Bynum has a higher ceiling.

    Don’t let your love for Howard not let you look at the facts.

    [Comment ID #26382 Will Be Quoted Here]

    no nescessarily, but I think this is a pretty good and consistent explanation by Wiki.

    Why are you guys giving Dwight so much sh•t?
    He seems to be a cool dude and as far as Kobe react to the whole show, kobe seems to like the guy.

    Dwight had a sick performance last night period!

  • MILO

    He got lucky the ball did not bounce back and hit him in the face so whatever!!!

  • roscoe

    bynum straight up for howard is a no brainer. howard is ridiculous.

  • west213

    THAT WAS NOT A DUNK!!! HE DIDNT EVEN TOUCH THE RIM

  • LakersFirst (Change) (Close)

    [Comment ID #26385 Will Be Quoted Here]

    You’re a f’n idiot if you think Howard has a post up game and is going to get better. Unless Howard develops a post up game and can create his own shots, then he won’t get any better (he’s hit the ceiling). Howard does NOT have a post up game nor does he have the ability to create his own shot. Howards gets 90% of his points on dunks off of missed shots and a few points when he gets to the free throw line a shoots his regular 50% at the line.

    As AB4Sure said:

    “bynum 16/13/3/2 howard 20/14/2/1…pts,reb.blks and assists.. per 36 minutes plus bynum has better post moves, hands, higher ceiling and two years younger.”

    Bynum has a decent post up game now and is getting year after year. Most people are just enamored with Dwight Howard because of his power, but there is more to the game than power. Bynum is going to be a much more complete player than Howard. In my opinion Bynum is already a better defender and shot blocker than Bynum.

  • mplakers

    this howard versus bynum debate reminds me of the shaq versus tim duncan argument. shaq is showing signs of being a broke down cadillac (he might be fixed for a while but he’s got a lot of mileage) while duncan’s still the focal point of his team’s success.

    [Comment ID #26362 Will Be Quoted Here]

    Yea but Kobe brings it everytime no matter who he’s competing with. So im sure he’d cook up something creative. I don’t think he’d win, but he’d come up with something more creative than Green’s smelly-socks-under-the-legs-has-been-done-100-times dunk.
