I've played on that court many times. I don't think the rims there are not 10 feet high.

My first thought looking at that was that the rims didn't quite look the full 10', though that was before I knew that she's 190cm tall (= 6'3).

If they aren't 10' they're not too far off I reckon.
Impressive leap either way.

Lol have a better look at the backboards, they look lowered, probably why the others are laughing, even at 190cm she would have to get higher off the ground to put it in like that...... But give a good hype

The backboards look to be fixed on angle-iron, I can't see any lowering mechanisms.
If you pause the footage just before she starts to leap, she's 6ft and there looks to be roughly 4ft short of the rim.

I suppose the rims could be 9.5ft, but why would anybody make rims that height?

Some old Gyms have standard backboard heights of 9'6.

Take a look at the video and tell me if its just my eyes or does the ring look slightly tilted downwards?

The dunk was legit. If you can dunk does that make you a great baller?

No. Why? Do you see people claiming it does?

No just a pointless thread if the rim isn't 10'

If you can be bothered doing a freeze frame, then pause it at the moment when she actually dunks

If she's 6 foot 3 then the rings look too low to me. Just look at her feet and how close to the floor they are!

The majority of my teammates are 6’2 - 6’4. A few of them can throw down proper dunks – and they definitely get higher off the ground than that

It is a regulation rim, it was all legit.

Props to zitina...

magbegor, mcspadden, pizzey, Cochrane or any other of the 6'3+ girls. Can they dunk?
Horvat comes close I'm pretty sure.

Not yet, but I've never seen LJ dunk and she went ok.
