No one knows the first player to dunk a basketball, but the first one to dunk a ball in an official game was Bob Kurland. Kurland made his first dunk while playing college ball at Oklahoma State University in 1944 in a game against Temple.

The slam dunk is done in basketball. It is where a player slams a ball through the basketball hoop (thus, a slam dunk). No other sport has this.

From 1967-1977 were the only years the dunk was not allowed in the NCAA. It has always been legal in professional basketball

6' 2'' is the perfect height for a basketball player and it will give your team a tall player to DUNK the ball

Spud Webb 5 ft 7 in (1.70 m) was te smallest (and to even win the NBA slam dunk contest in 1986)... Nate Robinson is a bit taller (5 ft 9 in (1.75 m))

A female has never played in the NBA. Lisa Leslie was the first woman to dunk in a game.

To slam dunk, you need a basketball and a basketball hoop. The definition of a slam dunk is pushing the ball through a basketball hoop.

You have to jump high and dunk the ball. You have to have hops if you want to dunk on a 10 foot hoop and you need strength.

The first woman to be credited with a slam dunk is West Virginia's Georgeann Wills on Dec. 21, 1984: vs. Charleston in an NCAA Division I Women's Basketball game. The first WNBA player to dunk was Lisa Leslie, who did it against the Miami Sol on July 30, 2002.

Bob Kurland, a player for Oklahoma A&M (now Oklahoma State) from 1942 through 46 is reported to be the first player to dunk in games. A Denver newspaper reported his first "duffer shot" in 1945. It was later banned, and then reinstated in the 1970s.

Yes. He did dunk a basketball during the 2013 NBA Allstar Game in Houston.

However, the first NBA player to shatter a backboard, Chuck Connors(who would become far more famous as an actor), did not do so with a dunk. When playing for the Boston Celtics in 1946, Connors took a set shot during pregame warmups, hitting the front of the rim.
