Default Why the dunk was banned:

Footage of Lew Alcindor from Power Memorial High and his first UCLA season. Immediately following his first dominant UCLA season, the NCAA banned dunking.

Good stuff.

Also, I like that official at the 1:30 mark setting up for the power spike.

And he was already 7-1 and 3/8ths of an inch tall WITHOUT shoes at that particular time. Already taller than Hasheem Thabeet, the tallest player in the NBA right now. Moves with the agility most centers 6-9 or 6-10 don't have.

Nah it wouldn't change much. He'd still cherry pick, he'd just have to finish with layups.

The dunk was banned from NCAA ball from the 1968 to the 1977 season. It is known as the Lew Alcindor rule. Please tell me your not this ignorant and that you knew this all along and was just joking
