OK folks, the NBA Playoffs are almost upon us (first round begins on Saturday). After a year of "lockout ugly" basketball we will be rewarded with intense playoff hoops, but that doesn't mean there was a shortage of highlights this year. Everyone loves a rim-rattling dunk, even (in secret) those cornballs that say, "It's only worth two points!" Blah, blah, blah. A proper jam can change the momentum of a game and get your fans and teammates amped. Just listen to OKC's commentator, Brian Davis' reaction to a Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook connection, check the faces of Blake Griffin's teammates when he blammed it on Kendrick Perkins, or watch Jersey (RIP) go into a frenzy when Gerald Green did the unthinkable.

This was the year of the poster. So many facials, so many stare downs, too many to include them all. Find out who made the cut in The 25 Best Dunks of the 2011-2012 NBA Season.
