    Default Michael Jordan ran a 4.3 40 yard dash, and had a 48" vertical!

    "Smith says Jordan is the hardest worker he's ever coached. In high school Jordan hustled so, he was nicknamed The Rabbit. Rabbit, run. When he enrolled at Chapel Hill, Jordan ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds. This fall he ran a 4.3. By running and lifting weights he has substantially built up his upper body and gained 12 pounds in two years, most of it in the shoulders."

    Also Jordan was on a sports special on national TV in the early 90's with Deion Sanders and he was doing sprints with Deion and Jordan ran a 4.3 40 yard dash on TV. I would love to see that again!

    Michael Jordan also had a 48 inch verical. Obviously he wasn't maxing out his jump on every play, but Michael Jordan's max jump was 48"!!

    that means his head should have been 5 inches above the rim on his max jumps!

    Yeah, I don't think MJ had a 48" vert, more like 42-44", which would put his head at rim level or slightly above.

    the high vertical numbers that they use in the NBA aren't the actual vertical leap, they are with a step of run-up, not standing still and jumping vertically
    Not to take anything away from a 48 inch vertical off one step

    My freind has a 36 inch vertical is 5'9" and can run a 4.31 40 yard dash. Funny thing is he has no work ethic what so ever, he is just one of the most athletic people ever. He works out like 2 times a week, doesn't run at all unless it is during sports. He literally dunks a basketball in two steps. I hate him

    Kadour Xiani has a 60 inch vertical, I guess at 5'9" where does that put Xiani's head? Randy Moss has a 51 inch vertical. I posted the links for proof. These are verticals recorded without the ball. Jordan legitimately had a 48" vertical. I saw him run a 4.3 live on TV, he had a 48" vertical which he displayed live on TV, and he also threw a football over 60 yards.

    It was a special event that was run by Deion Sanders. I guess a lot of you Johnny come latelys have a lot to learn.

    Kids (sigh)

    Not a chance in hell he had a 48 inch vertical Not to mention the mathematical flaw in that his standing reach is 8'10 yet his highest reach is 12'6. If he actually had a 48 inch vert, he would reach 12'10......

    Fail.

    My freind can throw a football 73 yards, and can hit a reciever accurately for 57 yards. By accurate I mean like 50% or so.

    You don't reach up in the air when you do your vertical jump, reaching up will diminish your vertical leap in most cases because you adjust the body in order to be able to reach, I also assume that you are a moron who thinks Jordan was actually 6'6".... anyways....
