VIDEO: Kevin Durant Dunks On, Embarrasses Brendan Haywood

Next time Kevin Durant comes streaking down the lane, the Dallas Mavericks may just want to part like the Red Sea, lest they end up like Brendan Haywood did during the first half of Thursday night's Western Conference Finals matchup. To his credit, Haywood stepped up to the plate and challenged Durant. Unfortunately, Durant put him on a poster in the worst way, dunking on, over and through him.

Here's the video, which is so violent it may not be suitable for children (via Jose3030)

This is a rare occasion where the photo of the dunk may actually be better than the video. After the jump, the poster.

Two questions come to mind here. Is the photo or the video better? And is this dunk better than Taj Gibson's posterization of Dwyane Wade?
