Lakers Nation Countdown: Kobe Bryant’s Top-10 Dunks
7. Windmill Over Latrell Sprewell
Crime Date: February 6, 2003
Scene of the Crime: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
Victim(s): Latrell Sprewell aka Spree
Easily one of his most popular dunks of all-time, Kobe made a statement at the mecca of basketball, Madison Square Garden. His victim, Latrell Sprewell was one of the top wing players in the league at the time.
But Kobe was cold-blooded and ruthless, with no regard for human life. He would blow by Sprewell on the baseline, jumping from one end of the rim, and finishing on the other side with a quick windmill under the basket for good measure.
The dunk was undoubtedly an impressive feat, the degree of difficulty was excellent, and making this happen at Madison Square Garden makes this even more memorable.
Ultimately, it falls this low on the count of there being dunks that were either in more meaningful games, or over bigger, more imposing defenders.
