Default Was mj the most versatile leaper in NBA history?

Could get his head at rim from one of two foot and Would regularly dunk on guys off either. He would even bang on guys off of a jump stop which you rarely see.

Zion is the only guy that I can think of who looks as versatile. All of the other great leapers like Bron, vince, Dominique and Dr j are mostly one or the other. Am I missing someone? Who you got?

Yes. MJ was a versatile leaper. I haven't seen enough of Zion to compare him. Weird how we geek out over something like jumping but it's so critical to basketball. 3ball will be entering shortly with a character limit hitting post on this topic.

I don't know jumpings kind of important In Basketball and pretty much every topic has been discussed 100 times over on here. If You don't like it why don't you make a better one

There is no video of Dr. J or Lebron getting their head at rim off two legs, and no video of Dominique getting his head at rim off one leg... Only Jordan has documented footage of him getting his head at rim off both one AND two legs.

one leg: http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/sho...1&postcount=62
two legs: https://media.giphy.com/media/l2JhuR...D3fG/giphy.gif



Therefore, he's the greatest leaper of all time, out of the players that matter.. Jordan's superior leaping versatility helps explain his goat scoring skill and unstoppableness.

(again, this is out of the players that matter - so aside from gerald green and a couple other dunk specialists - but tbh, i've only seen gerald green get his head at rim off two legs, and james white only off one leg)

Jordan is no doubt #1 for me.

Rose is the other guy that comes to mind.

Ok fair enough. I actually looked for some videos of him off one because he came to mind but I didn't see any. If that's the he case then he would have a good argument because he definitely gets up higher off of 2.
