I'm nearly 6'1" tall, and I have only dunked twice before. I'm at the point where I can get SO close to dunking, but not quite there (except for those 2 times).

5 feet 9 inches. Can't dunk.
#3 Posted by xTheExploited (12094 posts) -
Depends how high the rim is. :P I'm about 5'10.
#4 Posted by Head_of_games (10859 posts) -
I'll just say it: White guys can't jump. So no.

Not unless I am in an elementary school gym. I'm 5'9".

Before my knees went to ****, I could touch the rim...but that's it. -which is weird b/c I have been able to palm a basketball since 8th grade I am 6'1

Nah, but I can touch the rim on a good day. I'm only 5'7 and white.

I'm 5'10" and if I recall correctly, I could touch the rim but nothing even close to dunking.

I'm 6'1" and I've been able to touch the rim since I was a freshman in high school when I was 5'10" but haven't made any more progress since. In fact, the last time I tried, I was unable to touch the rim.
#16 Posted by Agent-Zero (6196 posts) -
I'm 6 feet tall. And I can't. I can barely touch the rim. Keep in mind I am a white boy.

I'm waiting for Spud Webb to show up in this thread. :P

Damn...I would hope so :lol:
#20 Posted by BMD004 (5883 posts) -
[QUOTE="DJ_Lae"]6'5". Can.

Cheater. lol. And to some other people above me saying that they are white so that explains why they can't dunk. I went to high school with a guy who is 6'5" and black. He could *barely* dunk. And he is a good player. He plays at Texas Tech and was recruited by Bobby Knight, so he's not a bad player. He just should have been able to jump way higher for his size. So a lot of times it doesn't matter if you are black or white.

Yeah, if I couldn't, then I'd have a problem. It's actually a good thing because I can't shoot a basketball worth **bleep**.

True, and I played against this guy that was around 6'6-7" at a park, and he played on a local college team and really couldn't ball for **** despite being able to dunk with ease.

I'm 6' tall and can dunk. I used to be able to do it just standing under the rim, but now I need at least a step or two. I'm not too good doing anything fancy. I'm white btw.

I'm actually not sure if he is related to the football player. He moved to Houston from El Paso when we were in middle school.

#40 Posted by sonic_spark (4644 posts) -

6'0, and could dunk in high school. It wasn't clean, and I could definitely not do it in game. I'm out of basketball shape now though, I can barely grab the rim.

#41 Posted by CatsareTropic (32 posts) -

6'3 and can dunk. Can jump insanely high for being a white boy.

#42 Posted by Machoping (372 posts) -

I'm 5'5 and can touch backboard on a 10 foot rim. :L Asian swag.

#44 Edited by Lord_Daemon (24259 posts) -

I'm 6' but I don't know if I can dunk as I've never tried. More than likely it's a "no" I would think.

#45 Posted by HuggyBear1020 (456 posts) -

I'm 6'2", could dunk back in high school but haven't tried it in over a decade.

#46 Posted by wiifan001 (18416 posts) -

#48 Posted by Darthkaiser (12448 posts) -

#49 Edited by lamprey263 (23972 posts) -

I'm about 6 foot tall and I use to be able to dunk my Koosh ball on my miniature hoop I had in my bedroom as a kid.

#50 Posted by nait2k4 (79 posts) -

6'4" - Consistently yes.

Although, that was 10 years ago, doubt I could manage it now :(
