Default Re: LeBron's Vertical Revealed

.
Are posters really trying to say that ALL of the Jordan pics are bad angles?

That's almost impossible, and simply one of the most obvious denials i've ever seen.




UPDATED: Pictures of Jordan with Head At or Above Rim


http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/73...d3ec665aca.jpg - head clearly at rim, not sure about angle tho

http://thebestten.files.wordpress.co...pg?w=595&h=801 - not at peak of jump; looks 1-2 inch below rim

http://sports.mearsonlineauctions.co...f9ed25_lg.jpeg - he's backwards to rim & eventually ducks head to avoid rim - 43 inches

http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ps36f2be72.jpg - great angle, shoulder very close to rim, head is bent sideways but would be over rim if straight

https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/i...JUWB-ASvtcj-DJ - head looks 1-2 inches over rim.. 43-44 inches

http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...ps94088237.png - FT line dunk - head 1 inch over rim - 43 inches.

http://gifsforum.com/images_new/gif/...d5a253d6f.jpeg - bad angle.

http://gifsforum.com/images_new/gif/...7c3ed3316.jpeg - best angle of them all - his eyes clear the rim easily and actually it looks like his mouth is close enough to kiss the rim... 46 inches or more.

I think people are forgetting the selection bias again Jordan since there were fewer cameras in the Jordan era. Especially the 80's with the grainy as f**know shots. This means there is no hd or enough shots or good angles of Jordans vertical in his athletic prime. I would say he at the minimum had 45 or 46 inches out of high school or rookie seasons.
