That's the worst thing for me...holding on to the ball. If it's got really good grip, I can work with it, but can't dribble and then dunk it one-handed. I have to push it into my fingers before I go up, you know?

When I first started dunking when I was 17, I could ONLY dunk 2-handed. It's pretty crazy because after high school I started dunking one-handed and coudn't do 2 hands anymore. To be honest it's a bit scary when you're not quite sure you're going to make it. If you go up with 2 hands and don't quite get there, you're ass is going down hard.

I PM'd the people that called me out, just telling them that they may want to check the thread again. I only got a reply from TJones, which read...

"I stay in tha SWAT maaaayne. Noticed u also form H-town. I guess ima be seeing u on Wed. at the and1 open run."

I don't know what SWAT is, but at least he gave me props...I think

Nothing from Him or Skywalker yet, but I'd really like to hear what they have to say.

I've been dunking for the last 3 years. first threw it down at the age of 15. Most b-ball players who dunk, have first dunked around 14 to 16 years of age.

My standing vert was 25" as a 16 year old. Might be 23" now as an 18 year old cuz i haven't been ballin' much, too busy workin'.

I'm 6'0", i think i have a 6'3" wingspan. I dunno.

The average NBA player has a vert around 28 to 34 inches.

Sure. Pretty easily once my legs are warm.

Nothing special there, but it's the only video proof I have on 10 feet at the moment. I was trying to do it without being noticed, because the refs had already gotten onto me about dunking before our game (this was right after a YMCA league game).

Damn. How the hell did this thing get resurrected? lol

Anyway, for those interested, watch this short video for proof of the height of the goal and some other various forms of evidence...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5PgyGqW2zc


Then look at these stills from the video...



The white line shows where my feet are starting on the ground (0 feet 0 inches, obviously). The red line is even with the back of the rim (10 feet 3.5 inches) since I'm jumping from under the backboard, not the front of the rim. Therefore, the correct distance from 0 feet 0 inches up to 10 feet 3.5 inches in this picture is the distance from the white line to the red line. Knowing that, you can determine that the yellow line, which goes from the white line to the bottom of my right foot, is equal to about 38 inches.

Examine it until your brain explodes if you want to. In fact if you want to really get technical with it, open up a photo program and do the math using pixel values. But trust me, your conclusion will be that the yellow line is = 38 inches. That's my standing vertical.
