Default Dunking??

Hey so after a lot of work I think ive finally gotten to the point where im able to dunk fairly consistently!
im by no means throwing it down but i can manage a 1 handed jam just about!
heres a video i took today and im just wondering if you would consider this a dunk?
this rim is a little over 10'1" and i jump a couple inches higher indoors but this is the first time iv done it on camera!
its weak as hell i know but i have gotten better ones before!

anyway this has been my goal for a long time and im pretty happy about it!
Goal for the summer: 2 hand Jam! ;)

im 5'9"
standing reach is about 7'6"

Thats a lay up with a rim grab at the end, sorry. You've got a looong way to go before you're putting it down two handed. As a matter of fact, you have a couple more inches until you're getting it with 1. Keep working, your vert's pretty good and you'll get there. So close man.

Hell no, it's not a dunk.

I can actually dunk with two hands off of two feet, but can't touch the rim jumping from my left foot, so you've got me beat there.

6', BTW

Not to be rude, but that is no where near a dunk. I used to attempt to dunk all the time and always ask my friends "Was that a dunk?" The answer would always be "No." Then, once I finally did get my first dunk, I absolutely knew it was a dunk. If you are asking whether or not it is a dunk, in all likeliness, it is not. When you do get your first dunk, you will be absolutely 100% sure that it was a dunk, it just feels a certain way.
