I wasnt saying you were like him, im just saying that these guys under 6'8" usually do need to jump and so besides having a better body for it they have usually worked that part of their athletic capabilities out with a bit more focus then you did because you just didnt need to really jump as you were developing your skillset from 12-20+.

BTW, whats your reach?

Does anyone of you guys use air alert?

I use it,am in week 13(resting week),and it had some effect on my vert, not much so far,but it had a great effect on my speed and endurance.
I don't know how much exactly my vert is.I'm white,and 14 years old.

Still, 12-18 inches is all you need for the dunk or to sky for a block really.

Nope, I never used Air Alert. Skipping and doing step ups on stairs is all I did. Every second morning I would skip for 20 minutes and then do about 5 minutes of step ups. Worked great and help me jump a lot higher.

Like I said I got up to 34 inches of a run up, and could jump 30 inches without a run up. No fancy programs, just simple exercises at the start of the day.

Just find some stair or a ledge or something. Then step up onto it with your right foot then left. Then back down onto the ground with your right foot with the left following. It's just like going up stairs and then going back down, though its only on one stair. Do this really quickly for 5 minutes straight, or as long as you can go for really hard.

This is basically it. Though I did it on a small step really quickly.

My hops are back. W e had a game today where I had like 7 dunks in a game to 15. It was against bums, but that had no bearing on just the fact of being able to dunk consistently and easily in itself.

You have a 34 inch vert and you can only dunk a volleyball? How tall are you?

I'm 6'3 and I was able to throw down windmill's with a 34 inch vert.

Well if you are Kenny George you don't really need a vertical. All you have to do is be vertical as the annoucner on ESPN said.

6'4" and 15 y/o. Standing reach = 8'2"
And I can get about 6 inches above rim.

So 10'6" - 8'2" = 24 in. running vert. Sad.
