Re: Being able to jump onto a 44 inch platform does not equal a 44 inch vert?
It's not that hard to comprehend. Some people are genetically engineered (through DNA) to jump high, and through constant training, they are able to reach at or near their potential. Basketball players who can jump high by only playing bball... they are special people who have the gifts to jump, but they also do what it takes to reach that potential. You won't see a guy who sits at a computer desk all day jumping very high even if his body was made for it... You have to get up and jump around. Basketball is a great way to do that.
