The coolest dunking videos I've ever seen are ones by "The Dunk Father" on youtube. That guy is maybe 5'9/5'10. Really cool.

You didn't dunk that was traveling you took like half the court worth of steps without bouncing the ball.

@IrishGymSheep hands too small to palm a regulation basketball, torn ACL/MCL, and Frank's between 5'8" and 5'10" depending on who is measuring him.

Thus, no dunking for me. -3X

You don't even jump high, and are you using a woman's ball? Or do you have huge hands at 6'1, do something that half of America can't do and then I might listen

It weirds me out that this video exists. I am not hating but this video isnt showing a lot. So you were a white kid that did squats so you could dunk. Every white kid in suburbia has done this. I think it's ultra cool you had a goal and achieved it but sometimes you keep some shit to yourself.

No bro I have big hands. I can palm most basketballs.

My running vertical jump is about 30-33 inches.

Without any strength and speed training I can only get about half an inch over the rim.

This guy gets a running start, but at 3:30 in the video he hits a jump for like 57.5 inches. It's one of the craziest jumps I've seen in a while.

Thanks bro. The reason that method won't work is you also need limit along with relative strength.
