#1 – Barrett Posterizes Bogdanovic: 2021 NBA Playoffs Game 1 vs Atlanta Hawks

This was the dunk of the year. Hands down.

In RJ Barrett’s playoff debut, he struggled to shoot from the floor, but that didn’t stop him from giving us both the highlight of the game and the highlight of his young career. This is also of course arguably the best highlight of the Knicks playoffs. Cleary, I think so.

Why? Because he DE-STROYED Bogdan Bogdanovic.

In just one dribble off the pass from Derrick Rose, RJ, just as he did in the Lopez poster, cocked the ball back with his favorite hand and dunked the ball. HARD. And I don’t know which other detail was better, the fact that he did this to tie the game, or that he landed and gave a very brief mean mug just standing there. Just such a savage play all around.

I hope we get to see Barrett create many more fireworks like this in future playoffs.

Next. Four draft prospects that fit perfectly with Julius Randle. dark
