Dunking has never been banned in the NBA. Dunking was banned in college ball between 1967-1976. It was thought that the ban was aimed at Lou Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) to keep him from completely dominating the game. In interviews, John Wooden discounted this saying that the NCAA outlawed the dunk due to safety concerns from players hanging on rims and breaking backboards.
Six fouls are allowed in the NBA.
