True but that dude could fly though, mad hops, just goes to show that athleticism (leaping ability here) isn't everything, however he showed signs of improvement with the Nets, hope he keeps it up.

Lol you really think NBA players bring out a trampoline to dunk the ball and post pictures on twitter trying to pass it off as real? Especially of Gerald Green?

Looks really legit. It looks like he's really trying his best to put his chin above the rim.

NBA players do quirky sh*t all the time, you don't think NBA players are capable of lacking shame or having a sense of humor that would allow them to pull phony publicity stunts?

People are really trying to complicate this picture

Pause at 0:13. His head isn't as high as it is in the pic, but this was during a fast break. Just shows what he's capable of.

Nah. Gerald Green just has insane hoops. Not hard to believe he could do this.

They showed video of it during the Pacers/Bulls game earlier. If you think it's fake you're just dumb.

He wasn't doing a dunk or anything though, just got a few step start and pogo'ed up off 2 feet to see how high he can get.

The dude's explosion is just nuts. Lots of guys can jump high, but Green gets high QUICK.

pic definitely looks real to me. just watch the video someone posted before and you'll see that he can actually get that high up in the air. If he can jump that high in a game then he can probably even get 1-2 inches higher when he's rested.

Can he touch the top of the backboard?
James White was pretty close but he failed...
