The Best Dunks so Far in the 2014-15 College Basketball Season

The name of the game is hang time.

These athletes make video games look unreal. They are anti-gravity. The laws of physics are mere suggestions to these gravitational contrarians.

Sometimes it’s best to just get out of the way and let these cats rattle the rim and raise the roof.

These are the best dunks that I was able to curate in this young season. Hopefully you don’t end up posterized.

You’ve been warned.
