2Michael JordanMichael Jeffrey Jordan, also known by his initials, MJ, is an American retired professional basketball player.

Michael Jordan can leap up in air like your not even there. He wants you to block him so he can just leap over your head. He dunked from the free throw line known as the foul line 6 times 4 during games and 2 during dunk contest. - DavidHayes

This high-flying killing machine is the best of all time. I mean the best ever! - DavidHayes

6Blake Griffin

Exceeds the line lined up by Michael Jordan

7Dominique Wilkins

The only ones that should be in front of this man is Vince carter and Michael Jordan

8Lebron JamesLeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association.

Most POWERFUL dunker of all time. Deserves to be at least #2

9Clyde Drexler
10Spud Webb

This list should really be about who is the second-best dunker after Spud Webb.
For those who do not know, everybody else on this list is between 6 foot 6 inches and 7 feet tall, but Spud Webb is only "5 foot 6 inches", but still easily won the NBA slam dunk contest when he entered it.

13Wilt ChamberlainWilton Norman "Wilt" Chamberlain was an American basketball player . He was born on August 21, 1936 in Philadelphia and died on October 12, 1999 in Los Angeles due to heart failure . ...read more.

People well over seven feet tall never look too impressive when they are dunking, except for the very young Wilt Chamberlain. Early on, he realized his free-throw shooting was not too good, and he also discovered that he could jump from behind the line, and dunk his free-throws.
Upon learning of this ability, the NBA immediately adjusted the rules to require that FT shooters end up behind the line even after releasing their shots.
No other player, not MJ, not Dr. J, nobody, has ever actually taken off from cleanly behind the line.

14Shaquille O'NealShaquille Rashaun O'Neal, nicknamed Shaq, is a retired American professional basketball player who is currently an analyst on the television program Inside the NBA.

He could hang like he was doing pull ups if he could jump higher he would be number #1

16Paul GeorgePaul George is an American professional basketball player for the Indiana Pacers of the National Basketball Association.
