I cannot comment on how well rated he is, but those were some sick dunks, for a fool of a Took, that is.

By underrated I mean that no one talks about Scottie Pippen as a great dunker cause he never won any contests or anything. But as an in-game dunker he was a god damn menace.

And even when he was in contests, he got fucked over by the judges. Case in point, this filthy free-throw-line jam from the 1990 Slam Dunk Contest did not get a 50, while Jordan's more stylish and more famous but shorter dunk did:

definitely a hard dunker, but people weren't "awe'd" by his dunks because of his vert.. wasn't as impressive.. it's like if you see scottie pippen vs james white dunk.. james white just blows your mind, scottie pippen just dunks it hard with way less vert.

True, his arms were long as shit so he got away with less vert. Still, he did quite a lot of dunking on fools in his career. That's tight regardless of how high you get up.

And come on, that FT line dunk is awesome.
