Long before Patrick Ewing became a Hall of Fame center, opposing defenses were still finding out the hard way that double and triple teams did little to slow down the legendary New York Knicks big man. In just his second season — the second of 13 consecutive campaigns in which he averaged at least 20 points per game — Ewing catches an entry pass in the post with his back to the basket and three Atlanta Hawks defenders draped all over him. The 11-time All-Star patiently waits for the right moment to strike, pivoting around the defensive wall and posterizing one unfortunate Atlanta challenger with an authoritative one-handed slam. Ewing torched the Hawks for 43 points on 16-for-20 shooting and added six rebounds, two assists and three blocks on December 13, 1986.
