So what you want me to believe is, Russell could essentially jump 48 inches?

So... that would put him with a higher vertical than, MJ, Vince Carter, Julius Erving, Dominique Wilkins, Spud Webb, Nate Robinson.

Am I missing something, or am I the only one that doesn't see the insane explosiveness as I did with the other players mentioned?
