I mean to see how much "prop" dunks have changed in the past 20 years... It went from dunking over chairs, to phonebooths, cupcakes, choirs... I don't blame Dwight for changing the "prop" dunk because his are actually pretty tolerable. But this dunk contest made me lose it.

Wilken, Clyde, Dr J were the pioneers of dunking and set the standard while VC set the bar imo. I hate all these props shit. What happened to shear creativity, power, and talent?
