On an unrelated note, i did get close to dunking today off of one foot, the P.E teacher even said all i needed was an inch and it would have been a dunk.

You don't need a good vertical if you can just drop the ball into the hoop without even jumping...but for everybody else then you might have to actually jump.

Back in college I had about a 35" on a run up. Never really measured the one foot, or standing vert. I'm short tho, 5'-11" with no real wingspan (as in, my wingspan doesn't exceed my height). All I could do was grab rim.

After my Rhuematoid arthritis, my vert is like 12" if I'm lucky.

That's not bad...I don't think I know anyone with that high of a vertical to be honest! Mine is like 8-9 inches shorter than that (but I can just barely touch the rim even though I have a 7,7 ish standing reach w/ shoes on). Can you dunk btw?

Not sure what it is now, but I was able to hit 36" at age 17. Not bad for a 5'11" white guy.
