Watching the likes of Blake Griffin and other high flyers wreak havoc on NBA rims is awesome, but there's something special about dunking on unsuspecting poster victims in the real world and then celebrating accordingly - like you just pulled off the feat on an NBA court anyway.

On that note, here's new Laker Jeremy Lin posterizing a few people, including his mom, to kick off his #JLinDunkCam video contest.

The sidewalk walker and Mama Lin were kind of asking for it by not having their heads in the game - instead buried in a cellphone and fridge contents - but dunking on a sleeping dude is just cold. Not even Timofey Mozgov gets it that bad.
