Why did the NBA ban slam dunks in basketball
why did they ban slam dunks in 2967
There are 2 things wrong with this question. 1) The year was 1967; and 2) it was the NCAA that banned the dunk for 10 years because it was not a "pure form" of the game was the rationale. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Was_the_slam_dunk_ever_banned
Slam Dunking was banned in NCAA in 1967 and the ban was attributed to the dominance of the then-college phenomenon Lew Alcindor. The ban lasted for less than one year, perhaps 9 or 11 months only.
The NCAA banned dunking, not the NBA. http://www.ineedseats.com/NBA/Chicago-Bulls-Tickets
