Here is something I just learned:
In 2000, Michael “Wild Thing” Wilson of the Harlem Globetrotters set a new world record by dunking a basketball at a height of 12 feet (24 inches above a standard rim).
Holy Mother of Ricky the Cat. Twelve feet. I could probably dunk about..... 5'9''.
Where do basketball players come from? How do they get to be so tall? Are they considered normal or do they actually have giantitis? (I mean the real kind, not like when I make up words.)
For real. I might test myself and see how high I can actually dunk. Then I can know how impressed I should really be. Because if I can dunk at like 11'2, then big whoop, Mr. Wild Thing Wilson.
