Default Official #2 Dunker Of All Time According To ISH.

1. Vince Carter

If you look up creativity in the dictionary, Vince Carter's name should be there.The countless hours spent on the basketball court by Vince began to pay off when Vince was 11. That was the year he first ticked the rim with his finger. He stood just over five feet tall. A year later he threw down his first dunk.
Coming into the league, Toronto Raptors fans had no idea what was a bout to happen. Vince was destroying rims, just as he did in the playgrounds of Daytona Beach.
Entering the 2000 dunk contest he put on a Jordan-like show in the Slam Dunk competition, including a through-the-legs alley-oop jam with McGrady as his spotter.
He is without a shadow of a doubt the greatest dunker ever to step foot in an NBA arena.

Yeah haha, It shouldn't even be close (and it wasn't). Vince is the best dunker by a long shot.

As for 2nd best vote, Jason Richardson.

Michael Jordan, He brought the dunk contest into greater heights and the 1st NBA player to win back to back Slamdunk Championship. His greatest moments is jumping from the free throw line and beating Dominique Wilkins in the 1988 NBA Slamdunk Contest, dubbed as one of the greatest dunk rivalry of all time.

The winner of the 1987 and 1988 contests and the runner-up in the 1985 competition, Michael became a crowd favorite at the Slam Dunk Contests with his tongue-hanging showmanship and free-throw line takeoffs.

His Airness is also one of the best in ring dunkers of all time being blessed by having a 48 inches running vertical leap. Combine this with his great athletism he redefine the showmanship in dunk contest by taking the 1st step in making the NBA dunk contest one of the best highlights of the NBA All Star Game.

Right, because we actually wanted to hear a lame storyline for your vote.

Dominique Wilkins.

According to most internet site the vertical leap of his airness Michael Jordan is between 42- 48 inches. His highest was in college at UNC and it was 48", I think when he face Dominique Wilkins in the 1988 Slamdunk Contest it was officially measured at 44" inches Running Vertical Leap.

Ya, I know. For some reason I missed the word running. I knew his standing was in the low 40's though. That's why I edited my post.
