That’s the famous expression you’re sure to hear from the world famous, Harlem Rucker Park, after a CRAZY play!  But, what’s more interesting is what exactly just happened? Did someone just create a youngster’s new favorite poster?  Or did someone just find themselves visiting an orthopedist, for an ankle injury?  That’s the question, what exactly is more embarrassing to be on the end of?  Getting dunked on like personally offended the person who just engraved SPALDING on your forehead, or getting up close and personal with surface of which you play on, after someone decided to high the highlight stick, with a MEAN Cross? 
All Hoops fans have seen their favorite players deliver some of the nastiest moves, since Sloth from the Goonies!  It’s hard to say what’s more embarrassing, though…but, keep it real, if you’re on the receiving end of either, that girl who you THOUGHT, was checkin’ you out during the game, JUST found her a new target!  I mean think about it, you were just the reason that the crowd just went shocked1 OOOOOOHHHHH!!!  Which is usually followed by a, DAAAAMMMNNN, Did you see that?  Never a good look for you of course!  However, there are people who can come back from receiving such a self esteem killer.  Who could forget Allen Iverson’s destruction of Michael Jordan’s ankles…  Or Shaq’s devastating dunk on David Robinson in front of HIS home crowd, at the 1996 All-Star Game… Both of those guys went on to salvage their careers…lol  However, you could be someone that NEVER recovers, anyone heard from Fredrick Weis?  Yeah, Fredrick Weis, you know, the guy that the Knicks drafted in the first round of the 1999 Draft…still no?  Hmm…maybe this picture rings a bell…
I could go on and on about this, and laugh the entire time…some notable clips you should research
Kobe over Ben Wallace, Ricky Davis over Steve Nash, Vince Carter over Mutombo, Mourning, etc…lol
Deron Williams crosses Jason Terry (PUURRREE COMEDY!!!), Derrick Rose crosses Andre Miller (Parts 1 & 2), Jamal Crawford crosses Kirk Hinrich

    This is a tough call, I can make a case either way, but I would have to go with getting dunk on because that can get put on a poster. Getting crossed and falling is better now that we have youtube, but you can’t posterize that. The one thing about falling is that it happens less than getting dunked on and there are few ballers who can actually do it. I can’t remember Kobe make any one fall, but he had one of the best crossover dunk combos of all-time and probably the best preseason highlight of all-time when he crossed (can’t see who it is) then dunked on Ben Wallace before he was good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72BCI3Tvyrw&feature=PlayList&p=6C98EF8F043AAA04&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=37.
    But if you make your defender fall and then tell him to get up then knock down a three while he tries to get up now that’s some ill shit I.E. Randolph Childress crossing over Jeff McGinnis in the 1995 ACC Tourney http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRJMsoIptQo. But the Vince Carter pic says it all, because the thing I like to look at when someone gets posterized, is the people in the background. Look at KG and GP’s faces classic. It’s even worse when the other guys teammates are looking like WTF.

    Reece..I agree being posterized is the prolly the worst thing that can happen to you. But many of greats have been posterized. I.E Jordan, Shaq, Duncan, Yao, the Dream..etc.. However in my opinion getting crossed over and FALL is worse. And I mainly say this because i’m a guard. And I would get over it. But if im Ding someone and that dude cross me and male me fall, i’m going to be thinking about that for the rest of the game while im guarding dude. And to me people get dunked on damn near EVERY game. You even said being crossed and broke to the ground you seldom see, which to me makes it worse when it happens to you..
