oh yea, seems like most of you prefer low tops for jumping in, probably cause of the extra range of motion. i'm completely fine with high tops though, and think they might be preferred cause i get heel slip with some low top shoes.

yeah some low top shoes can cause heel slips. Also depends on structure of your feet. For me the nike low tops are great; kobes, hyperdunk lows, hyperfuse, etc.... great for shifting and acceleration

i see. yea both are good for me i guess. high tops just solve heel slip so i feel safer with them i guess. but yea, always good to find low top without heel slip.

is anyone else training to want to be able to eventually dunk in games? obviously vert training in general goes hand in hand(maybe except training JUST for standing vert), but i'm specifically gonna work on being good at going off LR and off my left foot. seems like going off 1 foot is definitely necessary for easy dunks in full court. am still a far way from making a 1 hander off the dribble off 1 foot though.

oh, thats quite a bit lol. off 2 feet off the dribble, i'm not quite sure how much i'll need, but i think high 30's will be enough to just do put backs. off the dribble off 1 foot though, i think jumping high 30's will be enough to comfortably dunk 1 handed.

I have small hands and couldn't palm a bball if someone put a bazooka to my head, so i'll need to get about 15 inches over the rim to actually throw it down. BS

how tall are u and whats ur reach?

think i'm 6' with a 7'8 reach. i don't think hand size matters too much even for one handers, you definitely don't need to be able to palm the ball. and even then, you always can just go for two hand dunks. try playing around with low rims and dunking on as high of a rim as you can, and you'll get a feel though. if you ever manage to get 15 inches over the rim though, i'm pretty sure you'll be able to do more than just throw it down lol. probably windmills, 360s, etc

nah trust me, people with small hands need at least 15 in over the rim to throw it down, cause they need their hand over the ball in a downward motion to dunk

if i could palm the ball i can just use my wrist to dunk it in, but now i have to use my entire arm to throw it down

hmm, well i can dunk one handed and two handed on 9'6, but my hands are more on the small side. i wish i was touching 15 inches above it though, which is 10'9 lol. i'm probably closer around 10'6 though but still getting the job done.

Think about it, your hands have to be on top of the ball to dunk it in. You might get lucky once in a blue moon and the ball goes in, but to be able to consistently throw it down you need at least 13-15 in over the rim if you can't palm the ball.

no dude. 13-15" is halfway down a normal person's forearm. it's possible to throw down with an inch of clearance (i.e. 8" over the rim); that was my personal experience. higher is better, and obviously the higher you are the more consistent you can be. but there's no universe in which 13" over the rim is the minimum to dunk. not even with two hands.
