Used to be 3 inches or so from putting down a windmill. Put on 15-20 lbs in the last 4 months and can barely dunk now.

How tall are you? What's your height? I'm 5'8 so at one time being able to dunk a tennis ball wasn't too bad, considering I'm white.

Can't quite dunk, technically have kinda of like Dwight Howards Freethrow line dunk, just the ball hit the rim and rolled up and in, but I am almost there to being able to put it in with two hands because not strong enough to palm a basketball, but thats what I get for being 6 foot 125

Jump a lot (everyday) and squat occasionally, maybe twice a week.

Always got shoes off when ever I am measuring, I come from a family that my parents were real skinny when they were younger, and both my great grandpas were skinny their entire lifes, so ya I am pretty sure

Dunked for the first time in 2 years yesterday despite 2 knee procedures in those two years. Being 2m/6'6-7" certainly helped but if I was any shorter, I wouldn't have been able to get that elevation with my knee.

been practicing my one leg jump recently, and for some reason i jump higher off 1 leg WITH a basketball. weird huh? maybe im just programmed to do it from practicing doing layups and stuff. for 2 leg jumping, its the opposite though, i can get a lot higher off an alley oop
