Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives

One of the all time best dunks by anyone wearing a Suns uniform was Kevin Johnson going off on Hakeem Olajuwon. I always liked Kevin as he played hard, had a lot of talent and seemed like a genuinely nice guy. Since retiring from basketball, he has been involved in real estate development and has now decided to run for mayor of Sacramento. When I read this, I was a little surprised but not entirely. I wish him well but mostly, I wanted to share this video with you. :-) I remember watching this game and literally jumping to my feet when he dunked on the big guy..

Hi Steve.. Thanks for stopping by! Now that the Suns finally have a "big guy" of their own, I hope they can make it pay off. Looks like they still have some work to do though. :-)

As much fun as the KJ dunk was, the John Starks dunk on the Bulls was one of my all time favorites.  Click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnANzFkW2oQ

MJ was nothing but the third man over on that...."over" him might be an exaggeration. I think the dunk Max wanted to link to was this one. I've always been partial to this one too.

In all seriousness- I saw the headlines about KJ and thought he was a good floor leader. Some of those skills will be helpful in politics.

Jim... the MJ dunk over Ewing is also one of the best.  I remember watching that game and being amazed with his ability to elude nearly the entire Knicks team for that spectacular dunk.  Nice pick.

Nick,

Lately, it does not even look like the Suns can win anymore.

Hi Gary.. Last night was a tough loss for the Suns. I thought they had em' but, in the end, they couldn't finish.

Jim.. We could do a whole series of MJ dunks. He could single handily take over a game better than anyone. Simply an amazing athlete..
