In a league predicated on players’ athletic ability and height relative to their position, finding NBA players who can’t dunk is equivalent to finding a needle in a haystack.
Logically speaking, if a player has made it to the NBA, he has dunked at one time or another. So what constitutes a player who "can’t" dunk?
Does dunking the ball in practice count? What about a video clip from high school, college or earlier in a player’s basketball career? If a player could dunk in the past and no longer has the ability to do so, does he make the list?
Ideally, for a player to make this list, he would never have had the ability to dunk. Of course, these are some of the best athletes on the planet, so do NBA non-dunkers even exist?
On the quest to find the rare breed of NBAers who can’t dunk, I’ll go through a list of suspects and provide the appropriate evidence to support their dunk claim when necessary.
