Just to clarify, is that Fred "Mad Dog" Carter?

CavaliersFTW, don't understand the purpose of this thread, there are shorter HS-players who throws down way nastier dunks than that one, Reed wasn't even contesting the dunk.

I have friend who is 6-1 who plays in like division 3 in Sweden who got nastier in game dunks than that..

No one is claiming that the guards couldn't dunk, a 6'3 NBA player should be able to dunk and you finding a 6'3 player who dunks without any contest shouldn't be such a big deal that you actually would make a thread about it. The thing is more that people claims that very few of the guards back then played above the rim like some of the freak guards do today. And guards being less athletic is a fact, they played under the rim in that era.

I remember seeing something about the courts today having a little more bounce/cushion to it as well...while back then it was a slab of wood over concrete...any truth to this? And would it even affect jumping

They were hitting 23 mph in their bare feet in mud. Put them in a pair of track spikes on a mondo track, and they're reaching Bolt's 28 mph, if not faster.

I think all sorts of things effect jumping, but it depends on the person as to whether one may consider those effects dramatic. For instance, even in 2012, I'm sure many of us know folks who could walk onto any given street court in a pair of flip flops and still hammer one through the hoop. Newer and better shoes alongside bouncier courts can only help, but it's not necessarily going to add eight inches to anyone's vertical.

it actually can/does happen in one or two generations depending on the conditions, but just not causing a difference like some of these derpti think
