And I can get about 6 inches above rim.

So 10'6" - 8'2" = 24 in. running vert. Sad.
Try again on the math

Quick question, do you measure reach on your tiptoes or flat footed on the floor?

If your vert is 40 right now, and you are down from your prime then what was it in your prime?

Alright this is a REALLY rough estimate. I remember reaching as high as I could on one of those giant rulers at Home Depot and I could barely touch 7'6-7'7 reaching as high as I could. When I (running)jump I'm about 2-3 inches under the rim. I'm 5'8.5. So apparently my running vertical would be what?

9'10 - 7'6 = 28 inches?

Is that decent for someone who just plays ball for fun and is an average sixteen year old white kid?

My reach has to be wrong, anyway. I can't only reach two feet above my head? Or can I?

Ok then, that makes my standing reach 8'1.

Off of no step/one step gather two footed, I can get like 2 inches above the rim so: 10'2-8'1= 25 inches.

With a runup and one footed, since I am a one footed jumper, I can get like 5-6 inches above the rim:

10'5-8'1= 28 inches, and i am 14 years old.

Here is a pic with a one step gather, that i took during photography class at school, I am 100% certain the rim is 10 foot and later on maybe after next class i can get a picture with me with a runup one footed in an indoor gym.

EDIT: Put it as thumbnail now.


Not the best jump/picture, but if i can take another one ill upload it.


If you are wondering btw, I'm 14, 6'1, reach is 8'1, and I weigh about 145.

You're 14. You don't need to do any weight lifting for a while.
