There are not many more deflating plays in sports than being dunked on. Being put on a poster not only means the other team scored on you, but your goofy face as you react to it will be plastered all over social media. And maybe even on a poster on some kid’s wall. But when it is your team’s player pulling off the poster dunk, there are few things that get you out of your seat faster. And the Sixers are no strangers to big-time dunks.
Joel Embiid alone has several poster-worthy dunks. The rightful MVP is certainly not afraid of contact near the rim. Despite the cries from Jokic fans, there is a reason Embiid gets to the line so much. Because having him shoot FTs is better than the alternative. Which is him driving to the time and stealing some guy’s soul with an explosive dunk. But it is not just him. Several Sixers players are responsible for eye-popping dunks this season. Including one guy who hasn’t even stepped on the court in a Sixers game this season. But he put on quite a show in the dunk contest.
