List Rules Only current NBA Dunkers. No retired or collegiate players.

Who are the best dunkers currently in the NBA? Certainly, this list includes some of the best dunkers playing right now, and potentially some of the top NBA players of all time. Check out these lists of best current shot blockers and best current scorers, along with the best (worst) NBA floppers playing today

The top dunkers who are currently playing in the NBA are certainly among the overall top current NBA players too (Giannis Antetokounmpo, Gerald Green, Blake Griffin, and Dwight Howard come to mind immediately). 

The highly skilled NBA players on this list can make or break a team's performance on the court. They are usually athletic jumpers who have huge hops and can slam dunk the ball with power. These high flyers are experts at putting their defenders on posters with their dunks.

Vote for the current NBA dunkers that you think are the most important, key players for their respective teams, and if your favorite player isn't listed, add him. You can also re-rank this list of NBA posterizers in any order you want.
