Dunking: “What is rarely addressed is whether or not dunking, as opposed to laying it up, can help your team, both in the standings and on the bottom line.

The answer – after looking at NBA stats over the last two years – is yes. “Dunk totals also represent a general aggressiveness: a willingness to drive through the lane, pick up fouls, and to try for the offensive rebound, as well as athletic ability – all things that a good team should have.” [Harvard Sports Analysis]
