    I know it may be hard for you to see little boy, but look at the top of his head, the black hair is hard to see in the image. The top of it is 6-7 inches above the rim, about halfway up the square on the backboard

    I believe Bron can get up to 44" as well with adrenaline. His regular measurement (no adrenaline) is probably somewhere around 40".

    Combine numbers are often less impressive than game numbers. Dudes often go higher and run faster during a game.

    ...
    If Derrick Rose had a 44" vert then he would have had at least 1 dunk where his head is 1 inch away from the rim. 44" + his 6'3 height is 9'11 (1 inch from the rim)


    This is the best I can find

    He is clearly 5-6 inches under the rim

    Unless I can find a higher pic than that

    Lebrons length - 6'8" (203 cm)
    +
    Vertical - 40" (102 cm)
    =
    10' (305 cm)

    Which means the top of his head should be able to reach 10' (305 cm)....

    ..and Lebron can confirm that here:

    Lebrons length - 6'8" (203 cm)
    +
    Peak measured Vertical - 44" (112 cm)
    =
    10'4" (315 cm)

    Which means the top of his head should be able to reach 10'4" (315 cm)....
    Which means the top of his head should be able to reach 4" (10 cm) above the ring....
    Which means he should be almost eye level with the rim....

    ...and Lebron can confirm that one with this one:



    The angle is very horizontal, the rim in line, no angle problems here, he is right next to the rim / not closer to the camera than the rim is.... so as you can see, he is at the very least 4" inches above here, probably more like 5" or arguably even 6" (?)..... which means he reached more like a 45"-46" vertical here........

    1. Show us PROOF he was measured at 44.

    2. That is NOT 4 inches above the rim. Do you know how big 4 inches is? It's 1-2 max. even then there's the angle, headband.

    When has anyone ever said this?

    If anything, Kobe trolls try to use Kobe's inferior athleticism to MJ/Bron to prop him up..

    1. Besides all the pre-draft measurements / scouting reports? (which is not enough "proof").... the actual PROOF is right up there.

    2. 1 inch is 2.5 cm.... 2.5 cm over the rim is like only his hair/headband being over the rim.... You are crazy, this is much more than 1-2, like half his head is up there and a normal head is: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YG2QBG_vKs...easurement.jpg

    3. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that angle, its perfectly horizontal, the rim in line & he is right next to the rim / not closer to the camera than the rim is..

    You are confusing Lebron's head with a goomba

    Angle is pretty terrible on that pic. First one is good though, pretty solid proof of 40+ vertical imo.

    You aren't going to get any proof. It's not like there's a peer-reviewed study on Bron's vert, and like was mentioned, the highest verts are in the heat of the moment, not at the combine.



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrCAskM65N4

    Looks like 3" at least, reasonably.


    And another angle of his other dunk




    then there's this one, if anyone can find the vid let me know
