Indiana Pacers: Paul George 45.8%

George’s performances in the dunk contest are criminally underrated – don’t sleep on his reverse through-the-legs dunk in 2014 – but what cements his place as the Pacers’ all-time dunker is, simply, the Birdman poster. Sure, his slam dunk contest win preceded it – he took home the trophy with an Isaiah “J.R.” Rider-inspired between-the-legs dunk – but his best dunks came when it mattered. His signature dunk, a reverse double pump dunk, became a go-to move for future dunkers in the competition. Eric Woodyard
