Who Are the NBA’s Best ‘And One’ Players?

 

Which NBA players from last season proved to be the best at stuffing the rock, while getting fouled, in an attempt to convert the ever popular, “And One” play? This is a list of players who are not only the best at drawing a foul, but those who are physically and mentally the strongest to be able to finish with the basketball, have the dunk attempt go in, and step to the charity stripe for an opportunity to put another point on the scoreboard. The requirements to make the list are that a player must have had at least 100 dunks and during the ’08-’09 season. The stats include players who had an “And One” attempt but may or may not have made the accompanying free throw.

Chumps, who’s best offensive move is the finger-roll off of a breakaway, need to step aside, only real players who take it to the rack in traffic make the list. These players either go strong or go home!

  7. Ronnie Brewer(UTA)            48                             148
  8. David Lee(NYK)                    46                             103
  9. Kevin Durant(OKC)              44                             114
  10. Amare Stoudemire(PHO)     42                             109

Dwayne Wade

Although most of the usual suspects appear on this list like Lebron, Howard, and Shaq, I was surprised to see Ronnie Brewer of the Jazz make the list. He along with Kevin Durant of the Thunder, and Wade, at 6’4, are probably more thought of as perimeter oriented. Additionally, one would also think that Durant has a hard time finishing with his thin, twig like arms against the stronger defenders of the NBA. Some notable players who didn’t make the list with more than 100 dunks were Josh Smith, Andre Iguodala, and Pau Gasol.
