    How many of you can dunk?

    and i'm not talking about one of these haha


    one of my goals in working out and getting into shape is that i want to be able to dunk on a 10ft hoop. I'm 6'2" 185lbs and i've never been able to come close. the past few months i've really been working on my legs in hopes of dunking someday.

    I'm not telling you people. You'll steal my moves. My moves are mine. They belong to me.

    Re: How many of you can dunk?

    I could dunk when I was young. A couple of years ago I was in a gym with no one around and I tried. oh my God it was ugly. I couldn't come close to touching the rim and i'm the same weight I was in high school.

    I wish.

    I'm 5'11 and can dunk a tennis ball. In college I could tip dunk a basketball but that's about it. Hands aren't big enough to grip the ball.

    well i'm very excited for you. I've always been really skinny and had chicken legs and i've never had much of a vertical at all.

    This just happens to be a small goal i set, you can set some other goal for yourself!

    Hope you can get some tail by hanging on the rim bud, because the girls/your wife aint gonna want anything to do with you when they see you wearing these around town/school/work. It's not worth it bud, take the lay up.
