I'm 6-3 and I can barely palm the ball. Enough to do a one handed dunk, but not enough to effectively use it for anything else.

I've never been able to palm the ball, so that makes it harder, especially in a game.

If I use a soccer or volleyball it makes it much easier.

Nah, i can't palm a game ball, but my buddy's got this ball that has like this rubber grip stuff. It's made for palming it.

Congrats bro.

We have a ball that is a bit flat at school, and i've been able to dunk that for weeks. The problem is I try it with a real ball, and it goes off the backboard and in. I can't palm the ball well enough, to take it up and push it down.

I finally dunked it all by myself tonight!

What I do to get the ball in the hoop is, I jump up holding it with two hands then when I get up high enough I just flick the ball of the top of my finger tips so it goes straight down, then my hand just lands on the rim..

Well look on the bright side...I can barely touch the rim...and that's on a good day too! But there are still many out there that can't do that!

Palming the ball is less important if your jump can make up for it, but you'd need a seriously high vert! Dunking is over rated anyways....
