he recored a vert of 46" in his rookie workouts with vancouver.. he still has the franchise record for the grizzlies.

i would bet 5 million Stro doesn't jump 46" off the ground. he would have to be the best dunking power forward ever with a vert like that. Not even Shawn Kemp has a vertical of nearly 4 feet.

there is more to dunking than jumping.. what was kemps vert? 40? its only 6 inches higher, quite a few tall dudes have a 40" vert.

Has a 42-inch vertical leap and a one-step leap of 47 inches

From NBA.com. My bad, still pretty amazing though. McDyess used to be able to fly.
