For more than a decade, the NCAA prohibited players from performing dunks. The league’s rules committee officially launched the ban during the 1967-1968 season and kept the prohibition until 1977. Why did the NCAA outlaw the dunk? Over the course of the 1965-1966 season, league medical personnel recorded 1,500 incidents in which players were injured after colliding with the backboard. The committee believed the ban would prevent such incidents. However, many college basketball fans speculate that the NCAA instituted the prohibition due to then-UCLA star and eventual NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who enjoyed posterizing opponents.
