If Santa wants to really embarrass kids on his naughty list, he can forget the coal. Instead, how about throwing down an absolutely vicious dunk in their face, putting them on an all-time poster?

That's what Rayjon Tucker delivered this weekend, playing overseas action in Italy's LBA for Reyer Venezia.

This isn't only the poster of the year, but it's an all-timer.

Rayjon Tucker Dunk Highlight Video

I'll give you a minute, because you're probably going to want to watch that a few times.

This would've been a pretty nasty dunk even without a defender in the picture. A two-foot gather from well outside the restricted area, head almost to the rim for a 6-foot-3 guard, and a nasty tomahawk finish. It may not have made the rounds as a highlight to American basketball media, but it would've been a solid 7.5 or 8 out of 10 for a game dunk.

Now add a significantly taller defender in his path, who Tucker blows through like he's nothing? That's a 10.

Sixers fans probably won’t remember Tucker much for his time in Philly, as he played just a total of 68 minutes across 14 games in his tenure with the team during the 2020-21 season, finishing with 34 points scored.

He did show off this leaping ability in Philly though, just check out the alley-oop he threw down at 11 seconds of the video below:

It's not always fun watching a former 76er succeed if they're doing it elsewhere in the NBA, but for a guy with a super fun game like Tucker to be balling out overseas? You love to see that.

Tucker is currently ninth in the NBA in scoring, averaging 16.2 points per game, which puts him one spot below fellow NBA vet Nikola Mirotic.

His team, Reyer, is 10-3 on the young LBA season, sitting atop the standings.
