The slam dunk was never prohibited in the NBA but it was in college ball. The story goes that after Texas Western won the NCAA championship in 1966, the 'purists' that ran college athletics at the time were upset because of the very aggresive style that Texas Western played, which included a lot of driving the lane for layups and slam dunks. Whether that is true or not is debatable since Texas Western was the first college in history to start 5 African American players. Regardless, the following season the NCAA Rules Committee voted to ban the slam dunk. The ban lasted 10 years.
