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.

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.
