    He claims a 42 inch vertical, if so that’s a 10 foot rim. What do you see that I don’t?

    I'm confused. Why are you guys so convinced that it's not legit?

    I'm 5'11'' and can touch the rim, and I'm an unathletic, fat, out of shape band geek. What makes it inconcievable that a video with cuts can't be legit of the kid jamming? I don't consider it a stretch that somewhere in the world there's a kid my height that can out jump me by 5 or 6 inches. It's not like it's a continuous video, he could have tried each of those dunks 20 times to get a good take for each. Is it simply cause he's a white guy, or is it his height that makes you think it can't be real?

    Hey Construction Engineers. How tall are standard doors in a gym? Carry the 8 block line (Mortar) around to the basket.

    Standard door height is 6'8". Hoop looks legit to me.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Have you seen 5’11” Billy Duran?

    I had a teammate in HS that was 6' -maybe 6'1. He could not palm a basketball so he cradled it between his hand and forearm. That meant he had to get his elbow at least rim high to dunk it. He could do it with relative ease.

    Some whitemen can jump (just not me.)

    Re: Have you seen 5’11” Billy Duran?

    I know white guys can jump. My problem is the camara angle all the shots are the from the ground up shots. Why is that? Look at most street videos of people dunking, they alway have some friend holding the camara. By putting it on the floor it looks like the hoop is way up there. I think te kid prolly can jump and would have not trouble dunking on a 10 footer, however I do think the rim in the video is about 9'6".

    David Thompson of the Denver Nuggets had a 45" vertical.
