For me it is definately a great pass........it's bonus if it turns into a great dunk.

Not a big fan of dunging. Seen too many go flying 20 feet in the air. Could mention a few from last year.

Even when a team's shot is not on, they can always play D. And good D creates offense. Love a great steal and pass to a team mate streaking down the floor. And a laying is okay with me. Like points. :)

Ummm, the cheerleaders.
All of the options you gave are kind of perverse. ;)

Beat me to it! Oh well... I guess I'll have to choose a block. A good dunk can get an arena rocking, but a tough block can be absolutely demoralizing to the other team as well as get the rowdies off their seats. Plus, it often leads to a fast-break and dunk.

A close second for me is a great 3, especially a contested one or a really deep one. Just something about seeing one of those 30 fters go in that gets the blood pumping.

I'll take a big block from Kuso that generates a crisp outlet pass to Matt or Jeremy, who fires off a sharp alley-oop pass for a big jam at the other end by Josh.

I have two favorites and I don't know which one I like more. They are: Defensive pressure so strong and effective the shot clock runs out; and an unselfish and threaded pass that results in a score. Of course, I've been known to come out of my seat for a dramatic dunk as well. :o

Of course, this is a "Great Board" -- thanks to the quality posts, but I don't think we should be patting ourselves on the back over good basketball plays!

a dunk sets it off, but i would rather see a guy knock down 2-3 3s in a row. someone catching fire is the best IMO.

I miss watching Ronny Turiaff clear the boards with his elbows flailing like medieval maces. I musta muttered "what a man!" 15,000 times during his Gonzaga career.

I really miss watching those great boards.

Especially when I can see it before it happens (which happens a lot...it thrills me to no end that I'm not just some silly hack and that I understand my guys' actions.) I'm yelling "SWEET" before the ball has gone through the hoop...

Nothing like a great assist with a solid follow through basket.

On the other side...cute passes that are somewhat showboat, do not thrill me...they happen...occasionally.

I agree with Zag79. In recent memory, those flying dunks off missed shots by Erroll were awesome, but those guys draining several long bombs in a row is best. I remember the WCC championship game against Pepperdine where Dickau got hot....also that game at LMU where AMMO went nuts.

Someone suddenly burying threes just when the opponent is starting to sniff some momentum. Demoralizing. Cap off a run of 2 or 3 threes with a steal and a huge jam.

I'll tell you what DOESN'T turn me on - the phrase "What turns you on" on my basketball message board! :)

I love a great defensive stop. Nothing makes me more happy than to see the team, up by 3 with less than 2 minutes to go, force the other team into a poor shot with 4 seconds on the shot clock. Takes away any potential momentum and gives you a chance to put the game away. Of course if we block a shot with 4 sec on the shot clock, run down and get a sweet dunk on offense, that makes me happy as well. :)
