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.
