Default THIS PICTURE IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!! .... Shannon Brown's head is

I am not sure how to post a picture to the page. Somebody who knows should do it. But I ran across this picture of Shannon Brown and thought it was pretty incredible. And it looks like this picture was captured after he made the block, while he is on his way down. At 6'3" for his head to be this high (while on the way down).... what does that make his vertical??? I am guessing atleast 47 inches.

Here is the pic:

2 questions:

1) What do you estimate his vertical to be based upon that picture?

And

2) Is there anybody in the league, right now, that can jump higher than this guy?

If there is somebody who is getting up higher than this guy, post the pic..... I would love to see it.

im guessing 48 inches like Shannon Brown says it is. Also on that block Shannon got higher than that, that pic was taken not when shannon was at the peak of the block but when he's coming down from it.

Also Shannon isn't fully extended, his head is down. If it were him just warmed up and jumped I bet he would have a bigger vert than Joe. Just my guess though.

The picture makes it look like he leaped right over him clean. But like I said, from I recall, that wasn't the case.

His vertical is at least 45 inches, but Nate Robinson's is 50

The thing about Shannon's picture is his head and body lean is pointed at a downward angle. Not up like Joe Alexander for instance. If Shannon raises his head and body up, he should be at rim level.

He pushed his head down because he wasn't going to clear

Vince Carter did the same thing against the 7 footer...

that pic was not the highest peak of that block. like serg's said it was him coming down. i remember the pic when he was at the peak. he was definitely above rim.
