The slam dunk has always been allowed in professional basketball. However, NCAA banned dunking in college games from 1967 to 1976.
Jim Bukata, the former director of marketing and public relations for the ABA, invented the Slam Dunk Contest as a method of selling more tickets, in 1976.
Yes. In 1976 the ABA held the first ever dunk contest. (It would also be its last since the ABA merged with the NBA following the 1976 season.)The contest was held at halftime of the ABA All Star Game in Denver, CO.The contestants were Artis Gilmore, George "Iceman" Gervin, David "Skywalker" Thompson, Julius and one other player. They all had to perform certain dunks and 1 freestyle dunk. David Thompson did a 2 handed 360 on the baseline and some other great dunks but Julius won the contest and performed his famous free throw line dunk. When the NBA brought back the dunk contest for All Star Weekend in Denver in 1984 Julius went up against younger players who grew up idolizing him. He came in 2nd to Larry Nance that year and passed the torch to the next generation of dunkers.
The NBA gives credit for the first dunk to George Mikan of the Minneapolis Lakers in 1961. The dunk has always been a legal shot in the NBA. However, college basketball banned the dunk from 1967-1976.
The dunk was banned from 1967 to 1976 in college basketball, according to Wikipedia.org. I'm not sure it was ever banned in pro basketball, except that the players used to just lay it up rather than dunking in fear of retribution (in the form of hard fouls), if I remember correctly.
No, only guys can dunk, girls are too small and wimpy.

You have to increase your dunk at least to 80 and if you edit your player you can choose what specialty dunk you want. The higher the dunk rating the better the specialty dunk. When you dunk most of the time it will do the specialty dunk.
