Hey so after a lot of work I think ive finally gotten to the point where im able to dunk fairly consistently!
im by no means throwing it down but i can manage a 1 handed jam just about!
heres a video i took today and im just wondering if you would consider this a dunk?
this rim is a little over 10'1" and i jump a couple inches higher indoors but this is the first time iv done it on camera!
its weak as hell i know but i have gotten better ones before!

anyway this has been my goal for a long time and im pretty happy about it!
Goal for the summer: 2 hand Jam! ;)

im 5'9"
standing reach is about 7'6"

Re: Dunking??
Thats a lay up with a rim grab at the end, sorry. You've got a looong way to go before you're putting it down two handed. As a matter of fact, you have a couple more inches until you're getting it with 1. Keep working, your vert's pretty good and you'll get there. So close man.

Hell no, it's not a dunk.

I can actually dunk with two hands off of two feet, but can't touch the rim jumping from my left foot, so you've got me beat there.

6', BTW

Re: Dunking??
Not to be rude, but that is no where near a dunk. I used to attempt to dunk all the time and always ask my friends "Was that a dunk?" The answer would always be "No." Then, once I finally did get my first dunk, I absolutely knew it was a dunk. If you are asking whether or not it is a dunk, in all likeliness, it is not. When you do get your first dunk, you will be absolutely 100% sure that it was a dunk, it just feels a certain way.

i can dunk.. im not saying i do in this video but thats just the closest iv gotten on tape!
but that rim is one or two inches high and i can jump 3 or 4 inches higher on an indoor court in proper basketball shoes!
i know that wasnt a dunk in the video but i can dunk!
