If your 6' 125lbs I'm surprised your hand hasn't been shattered as you block a shot.

I can do a 180 off one foot on a nerf hoop. that sounds lame to you but the nerf hoop is 11 feet up. that sounds impressive to you but i'm jumping off a trampoline. that sounds lame to you but the trampoline is on fire and over a pit of alligators

I can touch the rim, But i cannot palm the ball. I can do a tap board.

Surprisingly I don't get hurt often, other than a few bumps and bruises I am most of the time on 100% other than small nagging things that happen to everyone. But I've almost dunked it as of late but my ankle I rolled it and have played on it three times and hurt it worse everytime since then and still getting easy rim grab two handed.

sometimes I think it would be better to just know you'll never dunk so you could work on your below the rim game in peace, not always be jumping and tyring to touch higher things, trying to just push the ball through the basket instead of throwing it in

My brother's friend left his Strength Shoes at our house for a few months, like, 15 years ago. I went hard on them for a while. They weren't magical, as in, they didn't boost my vert five inches in two weeks, but I did feel like they activated and worked muscles quickly and readily.

im 5'9 but have a short wingspan so probably im like a 5'7 person. I only touched the rim once, but I get rim connector easily. (That was in the teens though, dont know bout now) I believed I can jump pretty well but the short wingspan was killing me lol, most of the time Im off a couple inches only.

Just now getting able to head out to the courts after a lonnnnng winter. 30 years old, but still doing alright.



Sidenote, any better gif-making sites out there? Gifninja used to be awesome, but it shut down. Now I can only find ones where you animate jpgs or ones that have really poor framerates.
