I first dunked at 5'11"
I could dunk until the day I screwed my knee. That day it felt a little weird but I kept playing.... dumbass.
Now 6'4" and probably wont dunk again.
By the way statman, get into chat at HH, and I edited your pic in the Photo Album thread.
Man how can I get that few extra inches I need to get dunking. I'm 5'7 1/2" like I said earlier, and I'm just like 1 inch from touching the rim. I want to be able to dunk it though, so what can I do to give me those extra inches, any advice?
I know alot of 6'0-6'2 guys that can get rim but not dunk. If i was 6'0-6'2 i would be out there everyday trying to dunk it, building up muscle. I'm 5'9 so at my height it's a REAL long shot.
If you are around 6'0-6'2 (and white) the biggest question is whether you:
a) have long arms
b) can palm the ball
I have long arms and can palm the ball. As for my vert, it was never good. 32-33 inches. I know some guys the same height with better verticals who never could dunk due to their inability to hold onto the ball in mid-air. They could dunk a volleyball with ease. But never a basketball.
