Default Official #10 Dunker Of All Time According To ISH

#9. David Thompson
David "Skywalker" Thompson is one the most legendary dunkers in the history of the NBA. He was given his nickname because of his 48-inch vertical leap, which helped him be able to take a quarter of the top of a backboard and leave change. The alley-oop pass, now a staple of today's high-flying, above-the-rim game was "invented" by Thompson and his NC State teammate Monte Towe. At 6'4'' David Thompson was and always will be one of the best dunkers of all time.

Where is Spud, man? Spud Webb should NOT, under any imagination, be out of the top 10. Spud Webb, AGAIN. Please take the time and find some video on this guy. Being 5' 7" doing the dunks that he did as well as he did, he deserves to at least round off the top 10, and he's a true pioneer for very small people in the league.

Name one time that Spud slammed over anyone? He's spectacular in the dunk contest, but that does not put him in the top 10!

Spud's dunk over Manute Bol:

And yeah, he's definitely top 10 all time.

My vote goes to Spud.

LOL at the "48 inch vertical" and "leaving change on the backboard".

That never happened and Thompson's vert was 40 at best.

Spud was 5"7. He deserves extra credit for the dunks he did. McGrady's never won a dunk championship either.
