Booth? how did he even occur to you? the guy can't jump 6 inches off the ground.

he can hit a 3 though... who was that against? anyone remember? it was a clutch 3, too. 4th quarter, cut a lead to 1. wish I could remember the opponent.

if anyone could I'd say Dwight howard could, remember that dunk he threw down in practices for Team Usa in the summer? bounced it off the floor and was literally so high he threw the ball through essentially.

Rumor has it Vince Carter did it before. Toke a penny off the top or something, not a chance in hell he could do it now though.

my friend is 6'3 and i've seen him get all his fingers over the top of the box so if an athletic 6'10-7 player should be able to do it.

when jerry west invited kobe to a pre draft camp workout, he was testing his skills and athleticism, and he stated how kobe was able to explode and touch the top of the backboard with ease...

I dont think Kareem could. I only say that because I read a quote from Kareem after he watched some guy do it(Dont remember if it was Wilt, Earl the Goat, or Jackie Johnson) and saying he couldnt get that high.

Larry Nance id bet anything could have. Him, Kemp, G, and Travis Outlaw I figure could. Also Ralph Sampson. 7'4'' with a 34 inch standing vertical. Running I figure at least 38. And he had long arms too.

If someone can dunk on 12-feet rim, they sure can touch the 13-feet top of backboard.

A young Vince Carter, Dwight Howard, or Josh Smith can maybe do it.
Oh and a young Kobe maybe can just miss it
