When Lew Alcindor came into the NCAA he was able to absolutely dominate games with the dunk. The NCAA decided to ban the slam dunk in an effort to neutralize the effectiveness of Alcindor. The rule was not set in place to prohibit Alcindor singularly, but rather to level the playing field so that teams that had a big man that could dun couldn't dominate their smaller stature opponents. Once there were more athletes who could dunk coming into the NCAA the rule was lifted, as it no longer served the purpose of leveling the playing field.
