Dunker: Larry Nance
Year: 1984

There have been tons of dunking greats that have pulled off miraculous feats in hopes of winning the Dunk contest title to the glee of us fans, but there will only be one who can say they did it first. Larry Nance took home the inaugural Dunk contest trophy and did so in part by pulling out this two ball rim rattler. Standing at 6'10" and making dunks look nice is hard, but Nance's lanky, smooth style helped him beat out Nique and Dr. J in the finals.
