    How could you leave off Darnell Hillman?

    Of that group I voted for Wilkins but I would have given serious consideration to Hillman or Dawkins

    Sorry bout that. I added an Other vote just for that reason now.

    Hillman was really before my time but I should've thought of Dawkins.

    I guess I was thinking in terms of contest more than anything. Ah well, that'll teach me

    Definently Wilkins. Everytime him and Jordan clashed, he kicked Jordan's *** (yes even in 88, Dominique was robbed big time), and while Julius was VERY good at dunking, he was just a little too early and was in his older years by the times he was in the dunk contest. If he started 5-10 years later, he would've been the best ever probably.

    One of the most underrated dunkers of our time (now) is Rasheed Wallace. The guy can SOAR to the air, and catches the most ridiculous alley-oops around, yes better than K-Mart. One time, a saw a game with Portland in Charlotte, and Stoudamire from about the OPPOSITE free-throw line, fired an alley-oop to Sheed, he catches it ONE HANDED and slams it down. My mouth was like .
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    The bar gets raised each and every year.


    Looking back at the dunks by MJ and Wilkins that seemed unbelievable 15 years ago, now they don't seem so great.


    I think Vince carter is the best.

    I would have to say Dominique and David Thompson.

    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Spud Webb put on the greatest single dunk contest performance ever, but
    Dominique is the best dunker over all, IMO.

    Is this question focused just on the "dunk contest"? Because for in-game dunking (and by that, I mean in traffic but still breathtaking) Dominique and Julius have to be #1 and #1A. Other guys only looked good in dunk contests or on unguarded breakaways, which I don't think is a big deal.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
