I used to rock the straight 2 handed 'barely over the rim' weak dunk on my neighbor's adjustable net. I was a monster when the rim was 8'-9' with a small non-regulation ball. I think the highest I ever dunked on was that rim set to 9' 6" . Woot woot!

As a 5'10 3/4" white guy, my game was necessarily below the rim.

I used to be able to touch rim with my fingertips on a 10' net, back in the day. That's what my grandkids will hear about one day. Only by then I'm sure my story will have morphed into some kind of Dwight Howard superman dunk.

i am about 5' 10" but was a pretty good athlete in my time. I played every sport there was and in grade 12, the last year before high school went to the 3 point line in canada, i actually slammed in a game on a slash to the hole over a kid about 6' 4". it rocked the place! I was a shooter and a passer, attacking was not my forte, but for that game i had been working on my vertical and tried it! what a rush!! I was able to dunk in my first year of college as well, but didn't do it in a real game after that high school game. i didn't make the university team.... ah, sweet memories....

hahaha

I've dunked on a 9' in my driveway before, probably the highlight of my life. That was back in grade 9 though, before seven sprained ankles when I was actually more athletic than 90% of the guys I was balling with.

Kennys between the leg bounce to a reverse. It was actually not that hard.

my boxers hung below the bottom of the shorts. it was brutal.

one kid on the junior team used to be all gangster about it, so he stretched the shirt as far down as possible and wore the shorts below his ass. he got ridiculed at oakwood one time when he dove for a loose ball and the shirt pulled up, exposing his jockeys for the crowd to see. you don't want that happening at oakwood.

those uniforms were just awful.

heh. I wish I had NOT been a dunker. I have steel hips now because of it.

ok this next one is my best and hardest. It was when I was at my best during VB season in University..... I had a very big vert then, so what ya see here is basically what I looked like. Except I took off from a little farther out. Only did it once, but thank god there was people there to see it.

Okay, I know almost nothing about you SJ, so this is a serious question. I'm not trying to be rude. Are you being serious? If so, how tall are you? I'm just curious what is allowing you to pull that dunk off. Is it height, or is it leaping ability?

Armchair, it's quite alright. I am 6'1" and one half.

In University, I had a 41" vertical leap.
I was short for years so I have to learn t jump to play volleyball in HS, or I wasn't making the team. SO I practised everyday alone in the gym after school for 2 years (true story) But then I grew 9 inches.

A lot of what i did then people won't believe, and I really only brought it up because my older sister posted some photo's of me from then on facebook. Totally embarrasing, but they reminded me of who I was back then. I was a little gym rat from hell.

Um, earlier in the thread, when you were mentioning your dunks, were you referring to this same 9'3 rim? Because that would explain a whole lot. I mean, a 9'3 rim is another ball game. You gave the impression you were doing your dunks on a regulation rim, and that's why people are being so skeptical.

it was a pain getting it done CB, but they are better now, no pain.

and don't get discouraged about guys not believing you, it's what we do and dudes, we can't let you have that without giving you a hard time.

It' sok to talk about what you can do, it's no tok to rub peoples face in it or think you're gods gift because of it. the guys on this site are ALL hoops lovers, and some of us have a little history. Truth is, now I can barely grab a rim at all.
