DTB’s Top 100 Dunks of the 2018-19 NBA Season (2018-19 Season Dunkilation)

A season of dunks-of-the-month videos culminates right now with the ultimate videographic display of dunking prowess: DTB’s Best 100 Dunks of the 2018-19 Season. One hundred sick slams curated by, perhaps, the one highlight maker who is not swayed by stardom or view counts. You know the NBA’s version of this video would be 90%…

DTB’s Best NBA Dunks of the Playoffs (2018-2019 Playoff Dunkilation)

This year’s playoff dunkilation can be described in one word: “underwhelming”. I think this is mostly LeBron’s fault, because LeBron was always good for five or ten sick dunks during the playoffs. I also blame the last dunkilation I did, which was combined for March and April. That one was so sick that this one…

DTB’s Best NBA Dunks of the Month (March/April 2019 Dunkilation)

Here’s the deal: March and April got a combined dunkilation because April’s would have been too short otherwise. However, this resulted in me tragically having to remove two minutes’ worth of dunks to get under YouTube’s limit. However, this leaves only the sickest and most vile dunks to remain, so it’s not all bad. It’s…

DTB’s Best NBA Dunks of the Month (February 2019 Dunkilation)

February might be a shorter month than most but that doesn’t mean that there’s a shortage of sick whamjams to cram into this month’s dunkilation. Below you can find some commentary on the most notable/entertaining/disrespectful/jammerific dunks this month. 0:03 – I think this is what the kids call “The People’s Elbow.” 0:07 – I’m experimenting…

DTB’s Best Dunks of the Month (January 2019 Dunkilation)

In lieu of a “real” video description, below you will find my thoughts on a selection of the dunks found in this “Dunkilation” (that is, a “Dunk Compilation”). Writing my thoughts free-form is way easier than trying to cram them into some kind of narrative. Let’s begin! 0:12 – Josh Hart looks like he’s ready…

DTB’s Best NBA Dunks of the Month (December 2018 Dunkilation)

As has become tradition (doing something twice means it counts as a tradition), DTB will provide commentary on selected dunks this month instead of typing out a whole long story that taxes the reading ability of YouTube users to its absolute limit. It also taxes my “coherent storytelling” ability to its absolute limit. A description…

DTB’s Best NBA Dunks of the Month (October/November 2018 Dunkilation)

In past years, my “Dunks of the Month” videos have been accompanied by a serialized storyline which stretches from the beginning to the end of the season. However, that process is too much like “real writing” and not enough like “regurgitating half-baked opinions” (which is how I do most of my writing), so this season…

DTB’s Top 90 Dunks of the 2017-18 NBA Season (2017-18 Season Dunkilation)

Approaching the familiar doorway off the alley, Greg uttered the latest password (“Gordon was robbed”) and was granted entry into the dunk club. His usual excitement was magnified by two factors: he would get to see Emma for the first time since their secretive rendezvous at that far-flung cafe, and progress on his leaping ability…

DTB’s Best NBA Dunks of the Playoffs (2017-18 Playoff Dunkilation)

Greg stared at the text message for a while, waiting for his racing thoughts to calm down before he even considered crafting a response. The intent of Emma’s message was clear, but Greg knew he would have to respond in a way that kept their friendship platonic; if anybody monitoring their text conversation had reason…

DTB’s Best NBA Dunks of the Month (March/April 2018 Dunkilation)

Greg was aware that all eyes (including Emma’s) were on him. There was nothing to do except run at the basket, jump as high as he could, and pray for the best. So that’s what he did. The attempt could have gone worse. The clandestine leg exercises Greg had been doing at home had apparently…
