i imagine they just re-print what the athletes tell them. if Guy had a 59" rvj, at his height, he'd be bumping his sternum on the rim. :f

So they don't bother checking or thinking about it at all?

At least the guy was modest, claiming just a 59". 60" is reserved for Kadour Ziani.

So I'm having this dispute with Myree about his reported 53 inch vertical. There's a video with him here:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zL7wohPJYU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zL7wohPJYU</a>

What do you think? Legit 53 or not? His head would have to be at 10'6" for him to have a 53 inch vert.

53 in that video? or 53 max, at some point, in his entire life?

i dno.. I know him and t-dub have the highest verts i've ever seen. I can believe Myree has hit LEGIT > 50" in his life.. video estimated > 50" -> definitely.

I think that video does more to support his case than yours. That's one of my favorite videos, it's absolutely mind blowing. This is perhaps a better image, given the camera angle. I'm not even sure I caught it at his complete apex. Also remember these are dunks and not max RVJ's. Obviously there won't be a huge difference but I suspect he could have made us lose our shit if he max head height jumped that day, on that rim.



If his max RVJ isn't 53", then what is it? 50-52"? The thing about Myree is, I don't suspect he actually pulled that number out of his ass like Guy or Ziani do with their 59/60's. Myree seems to have a decent understanding of s&c, from what i've seen. Imagine if Guy had hops like Myree? He'd be claiming an 80" RVJ. lmao.

Definitely, the question is - was that rim 10 feet? Because if so, even with the angles and so on, definitely head over rim there. 10'6"? I don't know.

The point I was trying to make is that he's definitely at ~48" or so. But 53? Hard to say, it's exponentially harder to cover these 5 inches from 48 to 53 than it is from 20 to 25...

sure, but look at that video I posted. He hits his head on the way down, and still hits the top of his forehead.

and ya I definitely am not minimizing those ~3" from 50-53.. It's astronomical - olympic level record gap. I just think that if there's anyone out there who can make the case, it's myree (and t-dub). Most of these dunkers are several inches taller than they report and don't get up anywhere near how high he gets up. If you took all of his vids and searched for legit 50", you'd find some (like the vids you and I posted).. and for 53"? the one I posted seems pretty close.

all of this depends on legit 10' rims though.. he's gotten up crazy on so many rims that i'd believe he's hit at least legit 50" several times in his life.

pc!

Yup, the dunking video has some distortion, i would guess it is around eye-level to rim, so 4'' above rim
The other one is insane though, he is about nose-to-rim level with a huge body angle too. I'd give him 6'' above rim easy for that one, maybe a couple inches more.
But i don't know his height or the rim height. So no numbers.
woot

Exactly. I once did some filming with Nightfly in the past, with him jumping head level to the rim, from a low angle. Then I went up on a fence and filmed from exactly the level of the rim. He was 4-6 inches below the rim with his head. Such a big, big difference.

I feel that in this vid he might have gotten a very very slight push from the guy with the ball, based on the way his elbows bend a bit when Myree grabs it...very slight though.
