The only one right off the top of my head on this list is Steve Nash. There are obviously others, but he is the only one popping up in my brain. Maybe Stockton should be on the list. How about Adrian Dantley? I dont recall seeing him dunk and to me, he was one of the best post up players ever. I have never seen any 3 of those guys dunk ever in a game.

What does "non-dunking" mean? Never dunked? Couldn't dunk? Didn't dunk more than once every X games?

I don't think I can answer the first two.

Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, Bob Pettit, Cousey, Pete Maravich, George Gervin, John Stockton,
Elgin Baylor probably dunked,

Dunking not being their style/forte.
Rareness.

OK,then I'll stick with what I wrote. Larry Bird wasn't a dunker. Neither was Magic. There aren't too many better players ever - even ones that can dunk.

Well the 1973 NY Knick championship team had at least 5 who made the 50 greatest players list who dunked about as often as Adrian Dantley with about the same vertical leap to boot.. I am pretty sure Frasier never dunked even once.. Not sure about Earl the pearl in his early days though.. Even had Phil Jackson on that team maybe the best coach ever who never dunked....Reed, Lucas, the late Dave Debuschere and senator Bill Bradley...Certainly the smartest team ever
