Anybody else thinks the last jump on the video is even higher? It is wrist-at-rim level but with a serious hand angle. That's a typical RVJ PR situation too, overextending trying to catch a bad lob.
Keep it u scoob, awesome stuff lately!!!

Agreed. Looks like if he followed through and hit the ring it would have been slightly below wrist level. Nice work scoob.

The head to net position looks about the same.

Nice job scooby. I'd say with 3-4 more inches that'll be a slam, head should be closer to the middle of the net by then.
"Performance during stretch-shortening cycle exercise is influenced by the visco-elastic properties of the muscle-tendon units. During stretching of an activated muscle, mechanical energy is absorbed in the tendon structures (tendon and aponeurosis) and this energy can subsequently be re-utilized if shortening of the muscle immediately follows the stretching. According to Biscotti (2000), 72% of the elastic energy restitution action comes from tendons, 28% - from contractile elements of muscles.

Forget 3-4. Give him 2 and a good synchronization with the ball.

yea I guess, 2 inches of the wrist above the rim will help produce a SLAM dunk as opposed to just a dunk that barely gets in.
