Dan Majerle should be mentioned.. right now, it would probably be David Lee, but look out for Chase Budinger. He's clearly the future of white dunkers.

No one's probably going to agree with this (or really know what I'm talking about), but I'm throwing my vote in with Bobby Jones for all time. I was watching a Celtics/76ers game from 81, and he just had a vicious dunk in that. Also, Tom Chambers should get a mention.

Surprised no one has mentioned Marco Belinelli. He has had some great dunks, including this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Sh6ohvZYUE

Good call. Tom Chambers is one of the best in game dunkers ever, white boy or not.

Lee definitely deserved the win. Everyone says White should have won because he's more athletic (and clearly displays it in the contest). But dunk contests aren't purely about how athletic you are. They're about the dunks you perform and how you performed them. White's dunks weren't bad but they were definitely much less interesting and in my opinion less difficult than Lee's. Best white dunker ----> David Lee. Would love to see him in the contest this year (though he has bulked up a bit since joining the NBA which could be a problem).

David Lee got 10s for throwing the ball up and taking his shirt off then doing a basic reverse 2 handed catch dunk. That is a VERY easy dunk. The taking the shirt off during the self lob adds some flair but has no impact on the difficulty of the dunk

Thunder Dan Marjlie or Tom Chambers if you want to go back in the day. Chase Budinger when he gets to the league.

I don't know about the best White dunker, but best dunker i have ever seen is by far James White.

I mean come on.... between the legs from the free throw line?
he also has done a one handed dunk from the free throw line, and a 2 handed dunk from the free throw line.

he also has a crazy windmill.
