TORONTO RAPTORS:
TOSS-UP, DEMAR DEROZAN or TERRENCE ROSS

This is a bit of a cop-out, but DeRozan and Ross are similar in their dunking styles. They both prefer jumping off one foot, but they can do tricks and posterize people off two feet. Ross has won an NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest, but DeRozan definitely left the 2011 Dunk Contest feeling cheated after completing two amazing dunks and not advancing. DeRozan has dunked on more people because he has been around longer, but Ross proved with his dunk on Kenneth Faried that he belongs right there with him!

Attributes:
-- New-Age
-- Aggressive
-- Stylish

BROOKLYN NETS: MARKEL BROWN

His name may not be popular, but Brown is a highlight waiting to happen. He has a few nice dunks in his short NBA career, but go back to his college days, and there is blatant evidence why he's one of the top dunkers in the NBA.

Attributes:
-- Punisher
-- Top-Tier Athlete
-- Flashy

PHILADELPHIA 76ERS: PHIL PRESSEY

This diminutive guard may be a bit of a sleeper, but he's got a ton of hops. The Sixers don't have a prolific dunker, but Pressey can get up if given the opportunity. He's listed at 5-11 but is really closer to 5-8 or 5-9 in height.

Attributes:
-- Sneaky Bounce
-- Spud-Like
-- Quick

NEW YORK KNICKS: JERIAN GRANT

Grant, another guy without a big name, takes the top spot for the Knicks. Admittedly, this pick is largely based on one dunk that he had in college, but the dunk was so amazing that he gets the nod.

Attributes:
-- Confident
-- Attacker
-- Exciting

BOSTON CELTICS: AVERY BRADLEY

Avery Bradley is mostly known for his defensive prowess, being able to lock down perimeter players with his quick feet and athleticism. Those same traits make him an excellent dunker. He won the 2009 McDonald's All-American Dunk Contest, and he has posterized a few defenders in the NBA.

Attributes:
-- Agile
-- Strong
-- Bouncy
