Default What's LeBron James real vertical?

I've read from 39" to 44". It's hard to know since we don't have his measurements in 2003, so it would be great if someone could get a link to a interview or something we could really trust in.

I would say prob a 34"- 37" inch vert...vert is measured off 2 feet from a stand still and Bron isnt a two foot jumper.

lmao 44in get that shyt outta hear the most ever recorded was nate robinson 43.5in vertical then VC and MJ(skinny rookie) both recorded a 43in

LBJ when he was a senior in HS recorded a 37.5in vertical its on many website and if you watch the 2003 draft over again right after LBJ was pick they even said he has a 37.5in vert

and i honestly dont think its higher now he just added to much muscle but he is a better dunker tho

LBJ doesnt jump as high as Rudy Gay who had a 40in and he skkinny as heck Josh Smith who is just as big as LBJ was 39.5in

keep in mind your vertical only goes down when u enter the league just like in the NFL your speed goes down cause of all the muscle you build if you look at alot of NFL RB in HS they all ran 4.2-4.4 40's now if they get 4.5-4.6 your concerned fast

its 45'' the guy jumps and get his eyes 2 look at the rim off one foot. 2 foot he's not so great but he's easily the best one foot jumper ever.

lebron's head can get above the rim so 10.1 inch subtract 6'8-6'9 so around 39-41 inch vert could be higher too
