Ask any NBA fan to describe NBA MVP Derrick Rose's(notes) game and the first thing they're likely to mention is his peerless athleticism for a guard. Even then, though, he's capable of pulling off dunks that must be seen to be believed.
Case in point: this ridiculous and-one jam around and over Heat center Joel Anthony(notes) in the second quarter of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. There are only a handful of guards in the NBA who can complete a play like that, and somehow he does it on a consistent basis.
In fact, you can check out another amazing and-one dunk from Rose from just 23 seconds earlier in the game after the jump.
Ho-hum, just another day in the life of the league's most athletic point guard. In truth, Rose probably shouldn't have even earned continuation on this play, but he moves so fast that there's little other option than to make the call. With him, any fast break is a presumed basket.
