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

9 Spud 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.

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

15 Wilt Chamberlain Wilt Chamberlain Wilton 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 . 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.

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