"What does it mean to fly in the NBA?"

Jordan Brand and SB Nation asked, you answered, and after a week of voting, we have our winner. You selected Dwyane Wade flying through Anderson Varejao, an example of Flying Through one's opponent, as the top Jordan Brand Flight Meter highlight. In the final round, Wade topped his own jam against Kendrick Perkins (Flying Over)--which was my personal pick--and Chris Paul crossing over Kobe Bryant (Flying Around) to take the title.

As SB Nation NBA editor Tom Ziller points out, it's hardly a surprise that fans selected Wade flying through Varejao as the top Flight Meter play, given how it recalls Michael Jordan's exploits from the past. Ziller called this canonical Jordan dunk on Patrick Ewing "the foundation of Wade-through-Varejao," and it's difficult to disagree.
