Best poster-job: Dwyane Wade on Anderson Varejao or Ty Lawson on L.A. Lakers?


Best poster-job: Dwyane Wade on Anderson Varejao or Ty Lawson on L.A. Lakers?Right now, two dunks are the talk of the NBA.

The first came on Thursday when Dwyane Wade’s Miami Heat took on LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers. Wade, who is already in mid-season form, dribbled the length of the floor and dunked on Anderson Varejao with such ferocity the seven-foot super-pest fell into the basket’s protective cushions.

The play was so impressive broadcasters, for a moment, stopped discussing Wade and James’ pending free agency and actually focused on the game. 

The second took place during yesterday’s rematch of the 2009 Western Conference Finals between the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers. During the final stages of the Nuggets’ blowout win, rookie Ty Lawson got free off a high screen and promptly packed it on posts Josh Powell and DJ Mbenga.

So, what dunk impressed you the most: Wade’s facial or Lawson’s poster job? Watch the clips and get at us with thoughts in the comment box below.
