why isin't this guy playing valuable minutes for the Spurs? just have Bruce Bowen teach all the defensive (or offensive depending how you look at it) moves and just insert him in the lineup. He can score and you really don't need to play that hard on defense if Tim Duncan is on your team
Topic has been done before but like I said in there, if he can't do it, very few people can. Dudes be listing all these 6'5 average ass athletes claiming they can do it. But it was good to actually see it attempted by someone to get a good gauge of how difficult it is. Travis Outlaw, Stromile Swift, Tyson Chandler, and Dwight Howard are the best guys I give a chance to
It's not like SportsCenter showing the LeBron on Bobcats dunks from the high angle and drawing arrows claiming he's chest level, or freezing the dunk on Duncan and saying he is above the backboard. I wonder what his standing reach is though. Looking at someone with a similar build to him and length to him, Rawle Marshall (another guy listed as 6'7 in college, though he's actually 6'5.75), has an 8'8 standing reach and Julius Hodge who is a legit lanky 6'7 has an 8'11 reach. If James is 2 inches away from getting it, you are talking damn near a 48 inch leap.
Yeah, I've seen those before. I know the guy can seriously get up like no one else... His jumping from the free throw line showed that, still... the angles make it hard to judge accurately. I know he gets up, just hard to pinpoint exactly how high he gets up.. but yeah, the miss gives a good idea.
I remember seeing a Ralph Sampson poster as a kid and his hand was near the top of the backboard or something, at that age I didn't realize it was just the angle from how the picture was taken that made him look so high up.
