The Contenders

11 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 . ...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.

12 David Thompson

Nicknamed "Skywalker" for a reason!
