I am 5 10 and can grab the rim. I can dunk reverse off the wall, but can't do a regular dunk. I can't palm the ball.

How tall is that goal and how tall are you?


The guy in that picture looks like he's jumping around 3'.

A 3' verticle is a freakin' jump man. Stand a yearstick straight up and you'll see how high 3 feet is. The highest I ever jumped in high school was 31" and I worked my butt off all summer to be able to get up that high.

I can get 32" right now. If I get a running start, I can get 3'.

I don't think I could ever jump that high. How tall are you? Can you punch?

I'm 5'9" (175cm) with a 7'3" reach and 175 pounds. When I was younger, I was able to dunk tennis balls and the little miniature basketballs. I was able to grab the rims with two hands front and backward when I was warmed up. I had about a 36" vertical leap without the ball. But, when I hold the ball I can not get up that high. I am a two-foot leaper, like Dominique Wilkins and I need to swing my arms behind me like a volleyball player. I can not jump as high now since I hurt my back. I can still occasionally hit the rim. But, it takes much more effort and warmups.
