    My max vert is 50 inches, whoops I forget a decimal. 5.0 inches.

      Haven't even seen him jump. He sits in a chair on the sidelines. Number one pick ended up being an expensive non enthusiastic cheer leader.

              Just give the all time high to Jordan cause Wilt vertical is fake AF.

                    I would say that 8-10 of the players on the top 51 max vert. list are HOF worthy.

                      A lot of the Wilt Chamberlain blocks were technically a goal tend, based off what I can tell.

                        Connaughton (wrong spelling, I bet) is a great athlete. Just because he is white, doesn't mean he can't be a "freak athlete".

                          Im glad you clarified the time of Vert, because lots of asterisks are involved in that method.
                          Also, it might more appropriately be called a "Peak" Vert as it is pinnacle unless he can replicate it over and over then it would be called.

                          Somethings to consider, Running to vert means that factors such as "Force" "Velocity" & "Momentum" have a role to play in the results.
                          And considering that those conditions aren't always replicable then it mkes it a margin of error, ergo not a standard of which everyone can be judged by. Too many variables and factors play into the efficacy of the results.

                          Like the video tho, and congrats on that 41", years ago at 6'0 230lbs (standing) Vert of 32 iirc. Basketball recreationally.

                                    You know if Wilt, a 7"1 dude had a 468 inch vert his ENTIRE head would be above the rim? Man tf is this...

                                        Stevie Thompson of Syracuse U back in the late 1980’s could fly high. He was somewhere in the 40’s for vertical leap. Between him and Derrick Coleman, the ally-oop from Sherman Douglas was a show. Then the big guy Rony figured it out. Eventually, Sherman was scoring shots from his hip because his ally-oop pass was so accurate, they let them just go in.

                                            I am 5'8, in my prime could touch rim, think it works out to 29" vertical. But when playing sports like softball...1 time a line drive was coming at me at shortstop and I did standing vert to get ball...it felt like I went higher, like maybe 6".. A couple of players were impressed. I also felt like many times in volleyball I went above my tested vertical. My point: adrenaline..I think many athletes jump higher in competition above their testing vertices.

                                                40" vert with that body weight means he will be injured for most of his career....no way his knees, hips and back can withstand the landing unless he loses like 40lbs or so

                                                That number from Wilt is actually Bullshit, he didn't have anyplace close to 49" and Jordan didn't have 46. I don't know where these guys get numbers, but these numbers are inflated, I watched Jordan live more than once, he wasn't 46", not even close.

It was competition for the ball that made him better at jumping.

Back in those days, basketball was still a sport dominated by white people, and to this very day, white people can only shoot the ball. They have no handles, they have virtually no hops, and they cant body for their lives. on account of this, Wilt, being 7'1, managed to have it SO easy against his opponents. Now, basketball has changed. Everybody in the NBA is so well rounded and so skilled, that they within themselves have the same skill, if not greater than that of Wilt Chamberlain. It is because of this that Wilt's records still cannot be broken. Now, basketball in the NBA has gotten so hard, so difficult, that it is literally impossible to beat WIlt's records. However, my bet is that if the top-performing NBA players were sent into games with conditions just like that of Wilt's games, they would not only blow most of Wilt's records out of the water but also set new records that are so high that the future generations of the NBA would only dream of beating.
