What has been your favorite Leslie highlight so far this year?

No one on the University of Georgia’s Men’s Basketball team is doing better Public Relations work  for the program than sophomore guard Travis Leslie.

Leslie came in at #4 on ESPN Sportscenter’s “Plays of the Weekend” for two of his highlight dunks against the Gamecocks.  The first dunk was the one in the first half in which Leslie grabbed an offensive rebound, and through it back down with one hand (very reminiscent of the jams that Dominique Wilkins was famous for with the Atlanta Hawks).  The second dunk showcased on ESPN was the one where Leslie went through the Carolina defender to throw down a monster flush.

Through 6 games of SEC play, Travis “Why drive when you can fly” Leslie is averaging 2.67 dunks per game!  He has been on ESPN’s “Top Plays” segment a handful of times already this season.

Here are links to my 3 favorite Travis Leslie dunks this season…which one do you guys like best?
