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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
