True, I think most people have a much higher potential than they think though. Dunking isn't always the best measure of athleticism though. I know guys who are lanky with long arms that can dunk but aren't very athletic. If you compare Jacob Tuckers dunks in last years college dunk contest to some of Dewight Howards dunks in the NBA contest a few years ago I think Tuckers required more athleticism even though Howard got the ball a lot higher.
