    WOAH THAT'S CRAZY! Please get someone to film your next in-game dunk because I would really love to see it! I think you should be the one giving US tips for jumping! What drills or excercises do you do? Keep working hard! I'm looking forward to your mixtape

    I tried doing that stuff with a chair once. I broke it and my Mom got out the wooden spoon. Not a good day. Thanks for the drills! I'll find a subsitute for a chair and get some ankle weights! and Jump Rope for an hour?! Straight?! I can touch a 9 foot rim so Im quite a bit aways. 12 more inches. I'll get there. Thanks again!

    A thin wooden chair. Not too sturdy and I'm surprised a team with a guy like you can lose! Are you the only good player on your team? There must be others! (Maybe not as good as you but you know 'good')

    If you are 5'8" and dunking that is awesome.  If you want to play at the next level you should start working your pg skills.  Unfortunately, you won't be a 3-man in college most likely. 

     

    How are you ball handling skills?  I would say if you jump like this, you don't need to keep working on your jumping ability, but rather your skills (shooting, ball handling, defense, passing, etc.). 

     

    If you have this type of ability, with the right coaching you could get a scholarship offer in a few years.

    I'm glad to hear that the rest of your team has skill and that you respect them. I've seen posts about how a person's team sucks and their the only ones who can play. I didn't like that too much. You got to respect your teammates and help them improve. As cheesy as it is you're only as strong as your weakest link.
