There are few more electrifying plays in NBA history than the slam-dunk. Nothing gets fans to their seats and the bench going crazy like a monster dunk. Luckily, we have witnessed some of the greatest dunkers in history play the game of professional basketball. The likes of Zach LaVine, Aaron Gordon, and Zion Williamson are the best dunkers in today’s game but some truly iconic athletes rank among the greatest to ever do it.
Here are the 10 ranked greatest dunkers in NBA history.
10. Jason Richardson
Jason Richardson is one of the most electrifying stars in NBA history. Richardson was a good shooter and defender throughout his NBA career, but his athleticism was his greatest attribute. Richardson exploded off his feet for jams probably quicker than anyone in history, and he was a walking highlight reel. Richardson has an unlimited amount of memorable dunks but his 2002 and 2003 Dunk Contest performances have to take the cake as his greatest feats.
