Owned: 20 Great Dunkers In The NBA Today

19. Derrick Rose

Sure, Derrick Rose has not been the same since his knee injury, but that does not mean that he is still not one of the top dunkers in the entire game.

He reminds us a lot of Allen Iverson, who was one of the best small guys that was able to put down big dunks. Rose is a bit bigger than Iverson, which allows him to get to the hole more easily and stuff the dunk with more power.

He is surprisingly powerful for his size, and that is something that takes a lot of people by surprise. Many defenders expect that he will go for a layup or some type of a trick shot, but instead, he takes it to the rim and dunks it on them.

Hopefully he will be able to recover fully so that we can continue to be dazzled by his speed and acceleration to the rim.
