And of course theirs always this little diddy... if someone had their arm that high today for a dunk the announcers would have a massive coronary heart attack and die at the table the way the spaz over dunks today.

A camera looking up at a shot like that isn't really something to go off of.

You can judge that he's really f_cking high... don't be an idiot and try to deny it. Just look at his feet in relation to other athletes/the floor. Deuce claimed a "2 foot" vertical. Does it look like 2 feet? Or is the camera angle too tricky to tell...

35" if he's at rim level. But I think the angle affects that
edit: 30-33"

You must be around 13 if you don't know about camera perspective, here's a giant holding onto the Christ the redeemer statue in Brazil:




That statue is 130ft tall, he's clearly a monster.



Like I said, you can't tell ANYTHING from these garbage camera angles you're posting as proof, all of them are either off angle or pointing up at the rim.

I know damn well about camera distortion and perspective in photography is a hobby of mine. I'll ask again. Are you going to sit here and say "I can not deduce whether or not Wilt's vertical was two feet or not because I don't trust the angle"!?

Get real. The distortion is NOT that extreme.

You're, not YOUR. If you plan on calling someone an idiot learn the difference.
