Ranking Warriors' 10 most impressive dunks of the 21st century
No. 10: Monta Ellis skies over Leandro Barbosa
We begin with this poster slam in transition, as Ellis shows off his ridiculous athleticism as he goes coast-to-coast and aggressively throws it down on future the Warrior Barbosa.
Some credit is warranted for Barbosa, who managed to come down on both feet despite the ferocity with which Ellis attacked the rim.
No. 9: Andrew Bogut drops hammer on JaVale McGee
JaVale McGee is one of the NBA's best athletes, but he was no match for Andrew Bogut on this physical finish at the rim during the 2013 Western Conference Playoffs.
That postseason roar from the crowd at Oracle really brings back a lot of memories.
No. 7: Andre Iguodala poster on Tristan Thompson
The moment helps here with its ranking, as the play is during crunch time of Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals. Regardless, Iguodala still manages to clear a very athletic big man in Thompson and finish with authority.
You don't see a lot of poster dunks in the final two minutes of an NBA Finals game.
No. 6: Boogie floors Kyle Kuzma
Kyle Kuzma made the poor business decision of trying to slide in front of DeMarcus Cousins for a charge when the big man was coming down the lane. The finish and staredown here make this the most disrespectful dunk on this list.
Now that the two are teammates in Los Angeles, Kuzma likely isn't making this mistake again.
No. 5: Kevin Durant's holiday slam on Kevin Love
Kevin Durant had some great finishes during his time in the Bay Area, but this wild sequence on Christmas Day 2016 might be his most memorable one.
Love had no chance at coming up with the block, but that wasn't going to stop him from trying.
No. 4: Jason Richardson 360-dunk vs. Hawks
There could be an entire list dedicated to Jason Richardson, as he's got a catalog of incredible dunks.
His first appearance on this list comes on something you don't see very often in an NBA game: a complete 360-degree finish. There's a reason the Warriors have not one, but two Slam Dunk Contest trophies in the new case at Chase Center.
No. 3: Harrison Barnes climbs Pekovic Mountain
Nikola Pekovic universally was regarded as one of the strongest players in the NBA. Few could move people in the paint like Pekovic.
No. 2: J-Rich outruns Shawn Kemp
The level of difficulty on this play makes it the No. 2 dunk. Gilbert Arenas came up with the steal and made a bold bounce pass toward the rim. Another play you rarely see in today's NBA, Richardson executed to perfection on the finish.
As great as this and all the other dunks have been, we all know which dunk takes the crown.
Because this list was restricted to in-game finishes, Richardson's dunk contest glory isn't included in the Top 10.
No. 1: Baron Davis over Andrei Kirilenko
One of the most memorable plays in team history. Baron Davis never will be forgotten in the Bay Area for plays like this, the signature moment of the "We Believe" Warriors.
This is such an iconic play that the team began selling shirts featuring Davis throwing it down on Kirilenko during the 2019-20 season.
