Okay, so I might have missed on the Hakim Warrick flat-footed dunk yesterday. That one could have probably moved up the list a bit, but at least I can admit when I'm wrong, right? Nonetheless, here are the top 10 Syracuse dunks since 2000.
10: CJ Fair - St. John's
This one was waved off, but my goodness, CJ. This was so good it had to be on the list.
9: Jerami Grant - Western Michigan
Why Jump Wednesday. No really, why did you even jump? Just get out of the way.
8: CJ Fair - Minnesota
CJ again? Yep. and he's not done yet. No blood, no foul. Wait...
7: Paul Harris - Villanova
A little underwhelming performance from the broadcast team, but this dunk is absurd. Way more absurd than given credit for.
6: Chris McCullough - Cornell
Another underrated dunk, probably because it was against Cornell. But my goodness. As the kids say, "body bag."
5: CJ Fair - Cornell
Poor Cornell, they just can't catch a break on the court. This was CJ Fair's first major play at Syracuse and he let fans know early just how good he was. The finish is outstanding but so was Rick Jackson's full court bounce pass. Lefty to lefty.
4: Michael Carter-Williams - St. John's
There was really only one God's gift involved in this play and he wasn't wearing white.
3: Johnny Flynn - Rutgers
Flynn with no regard for the opposition. What about Mike Rosario's feelings, Johnny? That's somebody's kid! You made him feel so bad he transferred to Florida. That's just not nice, Johnny.
2: Hakim Warrick - Texas
Just. Get. Out. Of. The. Way. Add this one to Syracuse royal(ty).
1: CJ Fair - Georgetown
I mean just how good was CJ Fair? Otto Porter dogged him all season and all game yet CJ was the one with the final blow. This play marked the terminus of Syracuse vs. Georgetown as fans knew it. It's always good to get the last laugh.

So what say you, Orange Nation? Were there any misnomers? Were there any dunks that were left out? As Andrew Carey pointed out, was this MCW dunk against Cincy deserving to be on the list? If there was video of Louie McCroskey -- who I have an affinity for for graduating from Marist -- dunking on Hilton Armstrong, where should that have been? Surely there was a Terrence Roberts dunk out there that was omitted. Let us know what you think below in the comments section.
