Yeah, 5'11'' is definitely doable in terms of dunking, but I know what you're saying in terms of the realistic possibilities. I'm 6'3'' with a pretty normal wingspan (my 5'11'' little brother has a higher reach than me).

Have you been working out on the basketball court in addition to lifting weights? Sometimes an overlooked aspect of gaining the ability to dunk is constantly trying to dunk. Lifting weights or jumping in the weight room doesn't always carry directly over to the basketball court without a lot of jumping work on the court as well.
