There's definetely 5 foot 6 guys who could get 9'10. A combination of athleticism and length is what you need.

Im 5'6 and 3/4 w/o shoes and I'm pretty sure I could get rim on 9'10 not grabbing but touching... maybe not I can get the orange thing right under the rime though I dont think its much of an accomplishment a lot of guys can do it...

I can get the little connecting thing between rim and orange part under rim, I dont really feel like thats an accomplishment just average

I think it's less to do with how achievable it is and more to do with the fact the same poster came on a few months ago and claimed he was droppin windmills and posted a video with him dunking on a 7 or 8 ft ring.

You guys need to realize that 37 inches is not an unbelievable vert. The only reason it's amazing for NBA guys is because they are huge. I know I could, as a teen, get 40 off a perfect jump and most people would say OMG 40! And yeah I could get up, but I am not some super athlete. I've just got a smaller frame than most and I'm about 5'7.

So when you are saying KOBE JUMPS 37 INCHES, put it in perspective. I think dude got up on that jump. It's not the most convincing video, but it's also so believable that I am not going to question it.

Maybe those NBA players are tall but they are also amongst the most explosive athletes on the planets. Not many guys in your neighbourhood are blessed with those physical gifts.

I applaud you for putting up the video. I'm beginning to realize more and more that baseball players have great verticals. I guess you could say they were dunks.. I was expecting clean dunks. If I would ever put up a video, I would make them clean.
