i was hoping to see TJ in the dunk contest, he can definitely fly.. he's got some sick cellphone video dunks on YT.



DJ Stephens has to be the highest jumper in the NBA right now.. maybe he doesn't get enough minutes to be considered in this thread, but:

definitely disagree.

"TFB" people have next level hops.. ie, T-DUB's legit ~50 is light years beyond 40.. and most people in the NBA don't even have 40" -> 40" is elite-level. MAYBE someone like nate could.. who knows maybe even lavine also.. very select few.

also NFL SVJ's are inflated a bit because of the double arm reach test.

so t-dub level hops is near the highest level of human jumping performance, IMHO.. only people coming close to that are elite/olympic high jumpers and other bball-jumper-freaks.

Yeah, i would say it goes the other way around, imagine if TFB people had the NBA ( or NFL or T&F , whatever high level pro ) training/nutrition/recovery infrastructure, VJ oriented. 60'' would happen!
The same with those elites of the NFL/NBA, those guys that record 40+ in the combines, if they never worked on skills/endurance but just vert, they would also reach there.
It is the same thing. Pick elite jumping genetics and apply professional dedicated training. You would see people jumping insane high.
Like clearing 8'...
Oh wait...

you misunderstood what I mean. we all know the NBA players don't train to jump high, they train to get really strong especially upper body and taht weighs you down. Plus an 82 game season lol u know how tired the legs get?

What i mean is taht if these guys trained EXCLUSIVELY for speed and vertical like olympic sprinters and track athletes, they'd be flying on dunks.

Is counter intuitive though. Skill work at that level is in essence extreme conditioning/cardio/stamina. MOST cant maintain that level of skill, grind, etc AND a elite level vert. Those that can...well theyre genetic outliers already lol! Have them train for any high CNS/explosive work and they would excel.
