Dunk of the day: Victor Oladipo or Sam Thompson?

On the first Saturday sans Big Ten football, BTN aired five consecutive men’s basketball games. It all started at noon ET and came to an end just before 10:30 p.m. There were too many highlights to count during the 10-plus hours of action, but it’s safe to say none were bigger than Victor Oladipo and Sam Thompson’s ridiculous dunks.

Thompson slams home the inbound pass:

Now that you’ve watched both, tell us which one was better.

Funny thing is, each player had at least two other impressive pokes.

Here are Oladipo’s:

Does BTN realize that the MINNESOTA GOPHERS are 10-1?

Sam Thompson delivers with style and grace; never with an in-your-face cocky street-strutting mentality. Sam seems to never lose sight of the fact that his exploits are part of and contribute to team goals. Somehow, strutting, scowling and chest thumping suggests that “I am the reason this team is good!”.

Sam is a class act and a really good player for the Buckeyes — look out Big Ten.

If you think Victor is the selfish type of player then you’re sadly mistaken.
