The most electrifying and highly anticipated play in basketball, the word "dunk" conjures up MJ revolutionizing the Slam Dunk contest with his free-throw line jam, Spud Webb conquering the odds as well as his minuscule stature to throw down some wicked jams and Vince Carter having one of the most dominating dunk contest performances ever.

The Utah Jazz are not known for having a large number of talented dunk artists on their roster historically, but they're actually fairly rich in dunking heritage. The Jazz have been fairly well represented over the years in the dunk contest, and two of the more unheralded and underrated dunkers in NBA history will appear on this list.

The group of five players that I selected for this list were not unusually difficult choices, but ranking them was very difficult. An argument could be made for just about any of these five as the best dunker in Utah Jazz history.
