How did I know you'd make your twice monthly post in this thread.

That famous dunk contest dunk where he reverses it, he takes off and is gliding for quite some time, and on the descent still has to duck his head as he comes under the basket.

Jordan getting his head well above rim-level on long distance free throw line, distance and height.


Notice Jordan's head over rim height even on "the shot".



Sorry you exposed yourself as a failure as a basketball fan. The "court level" views of the old school game weren't as prevalent as they are now. Jordan getting his head at rim height and higher would be most prominent in the 80's.

Thanks for playing!

Yea I don't see MJ jumping 48 inches more like 42-44.

Anyone who plays basketball at a semi high level knows Ur dunks don't prove the max height you can get. If you Jordan to just jump as high as he could to see how high he could get his head above the rim he would make all you guys who don't believe look like fools. Seriously.

Last pic in black in white looks crazy. that should be proof to anyone. I think him and Wilkins each had legit 45+ inch verts.

Still waiting for a CLEAR pic where his head is ABOVE the rim. No angles or BS like that. Real talk Jordan Jockers. Man up or shut up.

The shutdown.

Jordan was a little over 6'4" true height, and clearly he had at least a 46'' vertical with the ball in his hands. 48" without the ball. Ran a 4.3 40 yard dash. Could throw a football well over 60 yards.

GOAT athlete!

The closest in all those pictures has Jordan with the top of his head at teh bottom of teh ring at best

They are all taken from low angles and "the shot" is taken from the other end of the court, from a low angle, with the ring 15 feet past him, perspective puts his head below the ring on that one too

I believe MJ had a 42+ vert for sure, but none of those posted pictures show the top of his head at rim level, except the black and white one, the one where he is J'ing it from the freethrow line. For the top of his head to be rim level, the top of his head MUST be displayed ABOVE the rim, top of head @ rim level doesn't cut it, since those are all photos from below.

Actually, in the black and white one, top of his head is at rim level, but shot is from below so take 1-2+ inches off...

For a legit photo, the angle of the shot has to be so that the arc of the rim is non-existant, meaning the rim would look like a straight line...for every inch that the back side of the rim is visible, you must draw the angle out...and every inch a player is further from the rim must be taken into account also...
