Chicago Bulls forward Taj Gibson puts Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade on a poster. Posted by Ben Golliver.

We have a new leader in the clubhouse for best dunk of the 2010-2011 NBA playoffs.

During the second quarter of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, Chicago Bulls forward Taj Gibson annihilated Miami Heat All-Star guard Dwyane Wade with a vicious two-hand dunk in transition.

The play began with a turnover by Heat guard Mario Chalmers. Bulls forward Luol Deng gathered the ball and tossed an outlet pass to Bulls guard C.J. Watson, who led a three-on-one break with Wade the only defender getting back. Watson dished to the trailing Gibson, who wasted no time in hauling in the pass near the free throw line, taking two gather steps and then throwing in a two-handed dunk over Wade, who contested with both hands. 

Gibson's flush went in cleanly and Wade was whistled for a foul on the play.

Here's the must-see video of Gibson's dunk on Wade. Don't miss Gibson's fourth quarter putback dunk which was almost as impressive.

I saw the dunk on Taj Gibson TV and was proud that a SC basketball player had done that to what some consider one of the premier guards in he NBA get dunked on.  Taj Gibson was a good player for us at SC and I got to see him play on a few occasions.

I am not a Bull fan therefore I did not see him play a lot, but knew he was a bench player for the Bulls. When he dunked over Wade the entire Trojan nation stood and cheered, even those that were yelling for the Heat.

He put the icing on the cake with the last dunk he made.  Once again all that were from the Trojan Nation stood and yelled for our man.

If the Bulls continue to play defense the way they did in the first game and the Heat don’t find a way to solve this defense, this series will be a  long one, I mean short one for the Heat.

Hey Dwayne how does Taj's ass taste!? That being said no one should ever be made fun of for attempting to play defense. If people keep making fun of players for contesting dunks they will just clear out of the way and we'll be left with And 1. In this age of style over substance Taj's dunk is worth more than Kareem's 30.000 career pts in the estimation of you young hip hoppers with your pants on the ground.

The Bulls are over confident? Really? A Heat fan is calling the Bulls over confident? I seem to recall a recent preseason championship celebration by a certain team. This group of 3 players were going to win "not 1... not 2... not 3... not 4... not 5... not 6..." before they even won one game. And the team they are playing is over confident? That my friend is comical.

here is the thing though....the bulls are not overly confident and never have been.  they beat miami all three times in the regular season...couldn't that have been a reason to be cocky too? nope, they just went out and beat miami even worse than before.  With thibodeau and rose as the leaders, im pretty the sure the bulls are one team that will not get too overconfidident no matter who they play or what the outcome is. not saying they will sweet miami or anything like that like some other people are stating, but they definitely will not lose the next three, thats just a stupid prediction

I love to see what I'm seeing with all the comments.  This game was perfect!  The heat got beat up and now know what they need to do.  The Bulls are going to be over confident now and lose the next game, get swept in MIAMI come back home win one and lose the series in the final game in MIAMI!  The heat will prevail for sure!

As a Wade fan, I don't see how anybody could argue the call.  Wade was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
#1. He was in the restricted area and contact was made which is a foul in itself. 
#2. He jumped and contact was made
#3.  He didn't argue the call for a 2nd.  

It was an incredibly obvious and routine call, and a great dunk by Taj.  Hopefully it fires up the Heat to be hungry in game 2.

Dude.........I am not trying to start a fight or anything but it cannot be an offensive foul based soley on the fact that Wade left his feet.  Now I realize that his hands smacking Taj in the face make it look like he "stood his ground" but common man...... he jumped........left the floor...........restricted area or not.......... it is a foul.  Just was in a bad position to be in for Wade......... I didn't hear him complaining that he was fouled.  Because he wasn't.......period.  This will be a great series to watch.
