There was LeBron James' dunk over the top of John Lucas III. And the Paul George double-clutch reverse dunk in transition. And a ton of Blake Griffin throwdowns, most notably the posterization of Kendrick Perkins.

But one dunk topped them all.

To find out which, you'll have to click below, where the NBA compiled the 10 best dunks of the season.

Griffin appeared on the list the most, occupying the Nos. 2, 5 and 6 spots. Pau Gasol also showed up twice . . . unfortunately for Gasol, both times, he was defending Griffin.

Enjoy three minutes of dunking, then enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.
