In the Krzyzewski era, we've gotten used to seeing phenomenal athletes - Johnny Dawkins, Robert Brickey, Jason Williams, Grant Hill, Thomas Hill, Corey Maggette, Jason Williams, Grayson Allen and on and on and on.

The first really great athletic talent Duke basketball had though was Gene Banks and it was really obvious, as soon as he showed up, that he was on a different planet talent-wise.

He was just electrifying.

Perhaps the most electrifying moment of his Duke career though, aside from his game-winning shot against UNC, was this incredible dunk over Virginia's 7-4 Ralph Sampson.

This clip is in slow-motion though and can't capture the speed and intensity of this play. It was astonishing at the time and still is.
