I'm 6'2 and I can dunk with ease. Athletic ability and height run through my family. All my brothers can dunk, my dad could my cousins can and we're all at least 6'1.

But I'm coming off surgery on my right foot and haven't played ball in months. In fact, I won't be able to play for 2 more months. I really fear that my athleticism won't be the same and that my skill will have declined...

I'm 6'0, & I have no vertical leap at all whatsoever. Kids were like touching the board & stuff, & I couldn't, til a couple of months later... & what's weird was, I played F/C in our league back home & SG/SF in JV/Varsity, & I out rebound the **** out of everyone... I guess my instincts/anticipation is good? And by that, it gives me the ability to anticipate where the ball is headed after a shot is missed & position myself correctly? Because seriously, out of 8 times, I jump higher than them & get the ball.... & this has been bugging me for YEARS. & yeah, let me post too ... haha you don't want none of that.

What are your thoughts on that ISH?

For me, I don't know the right word, but let's start with -- bizarre & weird. lol

Look. my mom & dad are short as f*** ... 5'6 & 5'2 ... & I'm 6 ft.! & I didn't take any supplements while growing up! NO VITAMINS, NOTHING! JUST PLAYED & PLAYED... I drank milk like a motherf*cker, though. Not one of those fake commercialized milk in the Philippines like bear brand & f*cking Nido ... I was drinking the real milk produced in the states! I live in a US military base in Germany at that time with the fam.... just sayin. lol

For me that tells me you've got a good motor, instincts, and positioning. It gets said a lot, but jumping high does not necessarily make a good rebounder. It's but one piece of the puzzle. Rebounding is kind of like defense, in that a lot of folks don't always want to do what's required to be great at it.

Its was most definitely couple inches lower. But Im more than capable of jamming it on a 10ft.

You are correct, I wasnt able to dunk last summer, but somehow every year my jump improves. Im almost 21 but still growing.

Good stuff, sir. I went through the same thing after high school. I didn't grow anymore height-wise beyond age 16 or 17, but my body continued to develop physically well into my 20's.

Default Re: Can you dunk??

i've picked up basketball recently but have a decent vertical from playing volleyball. i can grab the rim with two hands from a running start, but i have mediocre ball handling and dribbling skills and it seems like when i jump with a ball i have to focus on holding the ball and not jumping. what kind of footwork/hold should i try and does dunking a tennis ball and working up really help?

I'm probably 2-4" from touching the rim.

I'll probably spend the summer getting back in shape so I can dunk again. I'm not a big workout guy so I don't care how much I can lift or getting a specific "look" as far as my build goes so dunking will be a nice goal to have.

Update:

Still haven't played in a while but after about 2 months of lifting 4-5 days per week I stopped by a court to test it out. It took a couple jumps to warm up but I was able to get a weak dunk down. I'm probably 2-3 inches away from throwing it down consistently and another inch or two away from doing in game dunks. I think by summer I will be throwing it down again easily.

Yup. I've got no doubts. If you get out there at 22 and start playing again, being as close to dunking consistently as you are already, it's going to be pretty legit.
