    Since I don't buy this number for a second, never had the felling I jumped that high (but certainly well above average), I am going to measure if this particular one is on regulation height when I am in the neighbourhood (also there is an alternative height of the ground fro backboards depending on how low the rim is mounted on the backboard since there seem to be two variations)

    I don't have a great vertical these days. Knees can't handle the punishment like they used to ( that's I'm much heavier), but I might still get off the ground around 16 - 20" on a good day. love the jump smash!!!!

    There was some photos of me back in the day where on a jump smash, the bottom of my feet were more than half way up the net with my knees pretty much straight. It was estimated that I could jump about 34" inches going backwards. At just under 5'11" I was able to slam a basketball, which gave me about a 40" vertical going forward.


    I was once refered to as a white Swie King
