After watching Kyle Korver attempt a breakaway dunk this week and settle for a lay up, I was just wondering which NBA players cant dunk, and if there are any tallish ones that cant that I can laugh at. Have there been any funny moments where these players have attempted one and failed badly?

for the record I've seen Kyle dunk before, he said he slipped but the team got a good laugh out of it. I think everyone on my team, the Jazz, can dunk, though I havnt seen Sundiata Gianes attempt one yet.

From the Raptors, I don't think Marcus Banks can dunk, he's like 6'2 though.

Jose can dunk, he dunked 2 times last season.

Banks could dunk, although I haven't seen him dunk as a raptor.

I'm going out on a limb and saying that every NBA player can dunk, except maybe really small guys like Earl Boykins, and the older pg's like Nash.

These guys are ridiculous athletes, and i really think a lot of them dont care to dunk most of the time.

Oh lol.

So everyone, except Jarret Jack can dunk.

Jack did dunk in college, but I don't think he ever did in the NBA, I could be wrong though.

I actually thought i remembered hearing that he could dunk, i could be wrong. But yeah, i mean the really really small guys like Mugsy probably couldn't. But look at this image of Boykins with Gstate:

Zach Randolph

Zach had a dunk as a Knick. I remember it because the bench got up and started cheering since it didnt happen often. It is the only one I can remember him doing as a Knick. I believe it was a put back dunk where a rebound was coming off the rim. I'm amazed he can get so many rebounds but usually plays below the rim.
