I agree. Most small players I know who can dunk are doing it off 1 foot. For the reason you mentioned. Unfortunately I'm a 2 foot jumper and I simply can't jump with the ball in my hands because I really need that full arm swing. So I have to try it with a lob to myself. Last night I almost put one down. Unfortunately the ball rattled out. That would have been my very first dunk ever. I really hope I'll make one soon...
