Dunking has never been banned in the NBA. Dunking was banned in college ball between 1967-1976. It was thought that the ban was aimed at Lou Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) to keep him from completely dominating the game. In interviews, John Wooden discounted this saying that the NCAA outlawed the dunk due to safety concerns from players hanging on rims and breaking backboards.

yes, for 3 weeks, towards the end of the 1997-1998 season, the dunk was banned, the thought being that it was too aggressive and was in poor taste. it was reinstated just in time for the playoffs.

Server operators can use the following command, /ban <PlayerName> [Ban Reason] The ban reason is optional. So to ban a player called Hacka, you would use either, /ban Hacka, or, /ban Hacka Hacking

It Depends on the Server you were banned from. Most of them ban you for life while others give Temporary bans that could last for seconds or years. There is a very slim chance that servers do the temp ban though. I would suggest finding a way to contact the server admin and file a ban appeal with reason for why you are innocent.

Ban is not a person, place, idea, or thing, therefore not a noun. 'Ban' is an abstract noun, like 'permission', the antonym to 'ban'.
