Every team in the NBA has played at least 30 games now, and the All-Star break is just about a month away. It’s not even too early to start figuring out who is going to make the playoffs and who isn’t.

More importantly though, the season has brought us a ton of highlights. While the video clips are always good, sometimes the still photos show the true majesty and athleticism of the dunk. The other player’s reactions, the looks of determination on the faces of the dunkers, all captured in one frame makes for some great drama.
