2022 NBA playoffs: The best poster dunks from every series

Basketball fans can appreciate a well-practiced pick-and-roll, or a fine series of passes or a defender's ability to force an opponent into taking an ill-advised shot. But one thing everyone loves is a posterizing dunk.

What's not to love? You're either going to energize the crowd or silence them, depending on who's throwing it down. The reactions of players on the court, teammates on the bench and fans in the crowd only add more hype to the sequence. You've got the sound of the rock dropping home, the rim rattling, the net swishing. On top of that, it just looks incredible -- a player mustering all their talents to literally rise above the rest. It's no wonder some of the most famous plays in hoops history are posters.

With the latest throw down by Jaylen Brown in Game 1 of the NBA finals, we're taking a look back at the best posters from in each series of the 2022 NBA playoffs. The bar is set pretty high, and we're still on the lookout for the best of the Finals.
