You may want to recheck your calculations. You must go 8+ inches higher than the rim to be able to dunk. That even barely. I could touch the rim but never could dunk on 10 feet poll.

Yes, I do play at times. My action got limited (last few years) because of family and two destroyed shoulders (dislocated so many times that there is no longer cups to hold the bones in the socket). I use to play street ball. Now just shoot around with my son when time permits. I was blessed to go to a school where they had 3 courts with yearly tournaments.
