dead on. easily 32 inches. it looked like who were running w/o he ball to dunk. Though you did get some down, you have to work on dribbling before you dunk to be able to do it in a game. still your an above average athlete

do some plyometrics, 3 days a week for a month, then take a week off to let your legs rest, you'll be dunkin waay easier, more explosive too.

Yea don't waste your money on jumpsoles. Just do some plyos and Pistols (1 leg squats). Because you are a one leg jumper those will work well for you. At some point you need to work on your actual leg strength tho because you lack explosion off of 2 feet (Look good off one tho). You can throw down some sick dunks off one foot but with 2 feet it's easier and looks so much better IMO unless you just have that insane bounce like Lebron, Shannon Brown, James White, and the like. You'll need another 3 or 4 inches to throw it down hard... so yea just do some plyos and pistols (if you have access to weights do some step ups... and you can throw lunges in there too).

If you want I can design a little program for you.

good dunk on the 1st, and your attempts. throw it down HARDER! Maybe this is why I threw so many off the back of the rim when i was obsessed with dunking (tried way to hard to tear down the rim). I wonder how far I am from dunking now
