How can you come to the conclusion that his head may be below the rim?

Ive read alot of counts where its said Gerald had/has a 48" inch max vert (running takeof) and standing was 39" (standstill straight up jump)

For a 6'7" guys top of the head to be at rim level (10' feet) means a ~41"-42" vertical from my calculations, here he looks like he is anything from 4" inches to 6" inches above imo (looks like something straight out of NBA jam, absolutely unreal)... so yea that 48" inch claim is starting to look closer to realistic if that rim really is at 10' feet...

Im sure you have seen these also, the dude can get up there:

It's really close. I mean no one comes comes close to them (maybe Joe Alexander, Lebron) so let the Indy fans enjoy a ton of expectacular dunks from him this year.

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.
So does my boy Mike Beas.

Lebron has the most overrated vertical on in the league.
All his "head at rim" photos are from odd angles where his head is very far in front on the rim..shot from a low angle..so that it seems his head is at rim when it is far from it.

Gerald Green has 6-7 inch vert on Lebron.

Wow that james white video is legit..
Those angles are legit.

I think james white and gerald green get up around the same height..maybe gerald green a bit higher. However...both are good 1 is better one foot jumper other better off 2 feet

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?

You of all people?

You believe every single Wilt story you ever hear, you believe every single quote you hear as long as it is about anyone from the 60's but you actually doubted this...
