Hmm... pretty sure the answer is Shaq if you are looking for raw volume.
Shaq only scored around 23-30% of his points on Dunks though.

The leader in Dunk % was actually Mutombo I think with like a 40+% or so.

Screw that guys, the Leesburg Yellowjackets beat the Ocala Wildcats!

Oh, and if it's dunks per career, I'd be curious to see what Shaq's career total is...

I know Wilt woud have like 8 to 10 dunks a game. Shaq woud may have gotten 10 dunks a couple times. For Non-Big Men Dr. J, Michael Jordan, and Clyde Drexler could pull off alot of dunks a game! Kiki Vandeweghe once said that in his rookie year Marques Johnson dunked 10 times in one game against him.

BBR's Play+Index allows us to search for most dunks in a game from 01-13 if that helps (only 1 season at a time though)

Here's 2012

I would think he had games of 30 or more dunks as well back in the 60's.
