European Centers Scream "Dunk On Me!"

In honor of K. Smoove's Thunderdunk last night on Valanciunas, we decided to put together a compilation of some of the best balls-in-your-face baptisms of European Centers.  What is it about those tall drinks of water that makes them so poster friendly?

Back when Shaq was the most dominant player in the world, The Daddy himself over Muresan: 

The Black Mamba over Arvydas Sabonis in the 1999-2000 season:

Trevor Ariza over Marcin Gortat in 2010:

DeAndre Jordan dunking on everyone's favorite punching bag, Pau Gasol:

The most famous dunk (power layup) of the last few years, Blake Griffin over Timofey Mozgov from last season:

And the most famous of them all: USA vs. France in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney; Vince Carter over 7' 2" Frederic Weis:

And just for good measure, even though he's not European, here's a video of the top 10 dunks on Shawn Bradley:

Have you no shame, Mr. Bradley?
