Default Dunks, getting out of shape (VIDEO)

Ever since my knee started bothering me a couple months ago, I stopped hooping as often as i did, and really haven't played basketball in a few weeks. Summer has come and i started it off eating unhealthily and not being active.
I am going to change that and videotape my progress in the form of dunks.

Some clips from this morning.
Didn't edit.

Nice dunks...but...

Maybe it's just me, but your handle looks quite awkward throughout the vid? What position do you play?

totally agree. He has a lot of potential at least leaping wise. He isn't very explosive, but with the right amount of steps can dunk very easily.

I don't play for a school team anymore, just pick up games. So no real position for me.

And yes i need to work on my handle.

As a dude standing 6'3'' with the build of a T-Rex, I envy that wingspan.
