January Online Dunk Contest

Few days late to posting the thread, my bad. The idea here is for those of us who like dunking to have something to work on. Heck, I only have a few dunks I can do well so after a couple months I'm going to have to really work on other dunks if I still want to enter. So here we go.

Rules:
- Must have your legitimate measurements posted (height & standing reach are all required)
- Try to provide a picture of you standing under the rim with your arms up to give us an idea of the rim height. (#)
- If the rim is low, just tell us. It's not a huge deal as long as it's only maybe an inch or two low. We understand not everyone has access to a legit 10' rim. Just be honest about it. There are no real prizes here so there is no gain by cheating saying you're not on a low rim.
- Only 1 Dunk per video. Don't post a highlight reel and say to choose one. Just 1 dunk.
- 1 entry per person per contest.

# = I won't require this in January as a lot of people probably don't have this done on their recent dunk videos. Starting in February though it will be a requirement.


Okay, start posting away. I'll get mine up tomorrow.
My real name is Daniel. (6'5" - 217lbs.)

My request is that if you dunk in a FIBA/NCAA/High School, etc official gym on the main rims you shouldn't have to measure them...

Yeah there's no reason to measure 10'2 rims.

Don't worry man, even if a rim looks like 8 feet and you say it's 10, we'll believe you.

Little late but here's my entry. Dunk off one step and power dribble.

Edit: Forgot my stats. 6'5" w/ shoes. 8'2" standing reach w/ shoes. I stood under the rim with my arm up to show roughly what the height of the rim is.

This is my entry. It's in the main basketball Arena in Bucharest (Capital of Romania) where 2 first division clubs and the national team play, so it's pretty obvious the rim is 10 feet.

I'm 6"5' and i reach 8"3'
