Around a 32-33 inches on my vert.
Standstill is about 26 or so inches.

It's plausible. Some people are 1 foot jumpers.

while 6-7 inches is a lot to gain just from running...its possible. When I was 17-18 (im 22 now), my vert was 28" standing and 32-33". Sometimes I was able to hit 34" on a really good day. I sucked at jumping off of 2 feet..I could barely dunk it. Off of one foot it was easy as hell though....go figure

It's nice that your running vertical is significantly higher than your stand still vertical because my running vertical is hardily any better than my stand still vertical. I can't use the kinetic energy from my running to increase the vertical leap lol...

So I am guessing you can dunk without any problem (even when from a stand-still)?

That's what I'm saying. Anyway, I jump a lot better off of one foot for some reason. I would say I am strictly a "one foot jumper".

31 inches running. 26 inches standing still.

I can only jump off of two feet, If I jump off of one foot it seems like my vertical is around 2.9 inches.

Not really. With my stand still, I get maybe 1"-2" from the bottom of the net.

whoa, I think this topic has been on this forum many times already, but anyways, the truth is I can't think of anyone I personally know who has a vertical leap of more than 36 inches (3ft). Even though I knew everybody on my high school bball team, I don't think anyone of them had that kind of vertical leap.

haha, thats like exactly opposite of me. I can only dunk jumping of two feet. Off of one foot i cant even touch rim..lol..I think its just because ive always jumped off of two feet so I dont think im jumping right off of one foot.
