Guys. I have a new quiz "NBA Top 10 League Leaders of the 2010s" for all NBA fans out there. I have many unique quizzes in my profile you gotta try these hard quizzes. Thanks more power jetpunk!. https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/342321/nba-top-10-league-leaders-of-the-2010s

How about limiting your spamming of every NBA-related quiz comment section to only 1 post advertising your quiz(zes)?

Yes, please stop. I know this was 2 years ago (and these appear to have been done all on the same day, Aug 6), but EVERY NBA quiz has Nix commenting on 1) the oldest original comment, ensuring it's seen right at the top, and 2) again later on in Nix's own comment. So it's there twice. We get it.

Honestly, it makes me less likely to take your quizzes, so there's that. No one likes spam.

Teams would help more than height, though it's an interesting data point!

Interesting fact: Dirk had less than a third as many dunks as Dwyane Wade despite being 8 inches taller and playing 5 more seasons.

Just double-checked Vince. Only 739 dunks.

They expanded the data. He still had less than 1000 dunks in his career.

I tried Carter and McGrady, too, before honing in on team/height. Racking up dunks seems to be mostly a Center/Power Forward thing. Not enough fast breaks for hardly any wings/tall guards to make the list. Got to be able to dunk in the post with traffic on the regular. Sure the wings/tall guards on fast breaks make for the better poster material, but just doesn't happen frequently enough for relevance in career totals.

Shocked to see Iggy on here. Even though he played almost every game and a ton of minutes in the post-Iverson 76er era, he just never would have been on my radar absent clues.

There's a noticeable Steve Nash effect. It's too bad these stats don't go back further for historical comparison.

Blake Griffin is #21 on the list. As a Pistons fan, I'm annoyed that he apparently forgot how to jump once he left Los Angeles. Seriously, he had ZERO dunks in 20 games with the Pistons this year.

And then he comes to the Nets and plays well. God the pistons are so bad that their stars are disrespecting them. Hopefully we can get our hands on a good prospect this year.
