I know this century is still in the infancy stage, but here’s my list of the 10 best Pistons dunkers NOT named Jason Maxiell from 01 to 09.
I tried to base this list on specific dunks these players made as Pistons and not just what other fine slams they had with other teams.
Mikki Moore- I remember Mikki throwing down the hammer a few times with Detroit. Mikki always played with insatiable hunger.
Ronald Dupree- Ron didn’t get to shoot a lot, much less dunk. But the sole reason he made a decent career out of playing basketball was, without a doubt, his explosive hops.
Michael Curry- Curry had long arms which helped him emphatically slam it home, because after all, his vertical wasn’t much to write home about. But those lefty slams were sweet I’m not gonna lie.
Antonio McDyess- Antonio had his fair share of thunderous put back slams during his run in Detroit.
Carlos Delfino- Carlos only had a few nasty dunks that I can remember, but the one that stands out is the all out attack on Okafor.
Ronald “Flip” Murray- Murray didn’t exactly flourish in Detroit, but he had a moment.
Tayshaun Prince- Tay can do stuff like this. Very unfair, and felonious, as Sheed would say.
Ben Wallace- There were dozens and dozens of these. Cherish them, because they’re all but extinct.
Jerry Stackhouse- Stack dunked quite often via the alley oop but also dunked over people with authority and attitude from the drive.
Dunkin’ Darvin Ham- Each Darvin slam had a little extra in it than the normal monster slam. It was like Darvin had an axe to grind with the rim, the ball, and every single person in the arena. Darvin made rough love to the rim. Nobody denies this.
Lots of flushes by the ‘Ham Slamwich’ in a Detroit uni, plus other Ham shenanigans (pretty neat vid)
