    Seems like some people don't know. Westbrook is what i consider a power dunker even at his height, not particularly explosive. Now Derrick Rose, Steve Francis are explosive.

    Westbrook #1 in that department, easily. Rose 2 and I don't care enough to debate between Steve Francis, Baron Davis or whoever TF else. All I know is ESPN was trying to do too much putting Davis ahead of those two. Trying to "show off" historical observance of the game and instead made themselves look like fools. Westbrook is easily the most explosive point guard to ever play the game.

    Derrick Rose No.1 and they could add Steve Francis ... You only save the ball under the opponents basket when you throw it to half court ...

    d rose had the best 2 handers and vert... baron davis caught some good bodies... but wetsbrook the best one hand windmill and dunked the HARDEST in general. i'd say it's between westbrook and d rose depending on style... i think westbrook dunked the hardest but d rose had more variety of dunks

    I'm surprised this is still up for debate.. Russell Westbrook in his prime was far much more explosive than D-Rose. The comparison is about explosive dunking. Dont try and use player stats or saying Westbrook chokes too much to determine who's the most explosive dunker. The most explosive dunker in the history of the nba is Russell Westbrook. Period. Watching his old highlights still gives me chills the way he was mad at the rim every game.

    In my opinion Russ is the most athletic explosive dunking PG ever(although D-Rose comes close) mainly because he dunks with that kind of passion, aggression and fire like no other PG in history. With that Mamba mentality. You know what I mean????

    This just confirmed the media always hating on D-Rose and Westbrook. I don’t even like Westbrook, but Baron Davis has nothing on him in terms of athleticism. And D-Rose is undoubtedly number 1 on this list.

    Russ is not same size as Kyrie. Heck Jefferson seeing. They stood side by side in a game and Russ was clearly maybe 3 inches taller than Kyrie. Russ is a big point guard like Wall. And they forgot about Steve Francis.

      +AthletiQ nah, him and Steven Francis are arguable possibly prime Baron level, but Nate for his size is clearly more explosive with a 42' vert and played football well and was known for his speed and power. Meanwhile MVP Rose is a bigger, stronger, faster version of WB. Draft combine stats, sports science, and eye test videos of him getting up higher, getting across the court faster, and out powering other guards back all these up

    I hope those top 3 weren't supposed to be in order of most explosive.

  • I love traps, but I'm not gay

    D Rose is the most explosive, Westbrook is listed at 6'3 but he's 6'5, Steve Francis should've been picked for this
