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

this is wrong and in fact makes no sense.

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.

2 hands is a different story, but 1 handed based on my experience on 8ft rim and such, you have to jump at least 13 in over the rim to consistently throw it down, unless u can palm the ball.

I've also had the same experience. I can dunk one handed and my vert is 35 inches max. To touch rim I need 26 inches so with 8-9 inches I'm able to dunk albeit palming the ball. Sometimes I can get weak 2 handed dunks but that's without dribbling the ball and they are weak as fuck so imo they are not legitimate dunks.

yea.. i know j clark is jumping high, but i don't think he's near 13'/top of the backboard on his 11'8 dunks.

put down some 1 foot dunks off the dribble on 9'6 today. can't wait to start deadlifting again too to keep strengthening the P chain which is too vital in the 1 foot jump.

had a short, solid 1 foot dunk session in the first time in a while. felt great, no knee pain. i think i'm barely even getting my whole hand over the rim, yet i'm slipping dunks in on 9'6 off the dribble. seems like a skill i'm really good at though. i just take 1 dribble then take off hard off 1 foot and i can get dunks in

dno man.. looks very high. Why are you talking about 13' though? to get that 11'8 dunk, he'd need like 12'2" at least.. 12'2" is pretty far from 13'... If it's really 11'6, he'd need ~12' to land it. Either way, that rim looks HIGH.

also, if Myree isn't doing it, it has to be crazy high. Myree can jump out of the gym.





On a 10' rim, I imagine he's almost touching the net (given his height/reach).





look at the people on the left.. obviously there's some angle going on, but that hoop looks enormous compared to them.



so ya, he wouldn't need 13' to land those dunks.. *only* ~12'-12'2.

pC!

oh ya i know he wasn't close to 13'. fast does lie was saying you needed 15 inches above the rim, so i wanted to prove him wrong by saying that J clark wasn't close to 13' on that jump and made the dunk on 11'8.

ah ok.

ya you need 4" for a tip in dunk which people will debate is a dunk, 6" MINIMUM IMHO for a legit dunk, 8" ideal.. 12" = landing hard dunks.. 18+" = murdering the rim like a monster.

i see. yea, 4 inches over is probably a very iffy dunk lol. 18 inches is touching the top of the square. right now am probably a bit under 10'4 off 1 foot, and around 10'6 off two. will be sick to get 8 inches over the rim though off both though, will have my entire hand over the rim.

hmm, i'm actually pretty good off my right leg, almost equal to my left foot. probably from all the RL plants i'm guessing.

my left knee is actually starting to bug me now though. probably gonna play it safe and stick with LR now. hopefully can finally get an MRI and see what's exactly up with it.

can still jump higher off RL, but am sticking to LR. LR definitely easier on my left knee

yo, hello again. damn the summer whizzed by. yep, i'm still hopping around in my backyard sometimes, really just greasing the groove on 9 ft. guess i've been busy with other stuff hence no footage and just sticking around on 9 ft. but yea, seems there's not much to it i guess. gotta just keep jumping.
