The first round of the playoffs have delivered some excellent highlights, but last night Taj Gibson of the Chicago Bulls did one of the best dunks of the playoffs so far. Gibson did Kris Humphries (yup, that one) dirty and slammed in an awesome dunk to help give his team two points and effectively break his opponent’s spirit by posterizing him. See the dunk above.
After securing their 20th league championship, Manchester United may be sporting a new team badge starting next season.

We also have goals from Serie A, the Bundesliga and the MLS. See the rest of the goals on the list after the jump. Continue reading
