I’m 44, turning 45 in a month. I’ve never played organized basketball in my life, I have played rec basketball 5 times and that was 5 years ago. Most of my basketball playing stopped when I moved out of my parents house at 18. I was never able to dunk. However, when I was 17 I was also 5’3

As info, I am now 6’2 and not overweight.

Do you denoy riding motorcycles? Because if so, you should probably quit trying to dunk right now.

According to my calculations, you need at least a 28 inch vertical in order to dunk.

You grew 11 inches AFTER 17 years old? What the fuck?

Yep. Soccer practice senior, got slide tackled and my knee swelled up bad. Went in for an MRI and the doctor looked at me (5’3) looked at my mom (5’5) and said “How tall is your dad?” and I said “6’1 or so” and he said “Bad news is you’re done for the year with soccer. Good news is, you’ll probably be as tall as your dad.” Grew 6” the summer before college

I have two boys and my girlfriend has a boy as well.... 7, 7 and 9. So I got them a portable hoop and have been messing around in the driveway and it has my interest now as a goal.

Mine was right at 17. I didn’t turn 18 until I was just starting my freshman year in college. But yeah, seeing people 2-3 years later at the bars who I hadn’t seen since high school was a trip
