We are nearly at that certain point in the season where we could start ranking the dunks of the season. Some of them that we thought were really awesome early on in the year, have probably dropped a few spots. Others, as in the newer and shinier variety, are fresh in our mind and will likely be closer to the top of the list. Then, well, then there’s Nevada Wolfpack guard, Deonte Burton. Who, you know, just through down one of the best dunks you will see all year.
Burton, who averages 19.9 points per game, nearly jumped out of the gym. To appreciate what he did, though, you might need to take a few looks at the dunk. Just casually observing it will make it seem like he just did a random dunk. Which he did not.
If gif dunks are not your thing (because why would they be), here is just the normal, ho-hum YouTube version of this slam.
Those two points ended up being very important for the Wolfpack. They went into double-overtime with Boise State and came away the victor by just two points.
