I'm 6'2" and just started seriously working out and trying to eat okay about 3 months ago, went from 205lbs to 185. I'm going to try and dedicate the summer to making a serious attempt at dunking a ball.

I can grab a 10' rim fairly easy and can dunk fine on 9' but absolutely no hope in getting a ball over a 10' rim it seems.

My basketballs skills are a strange strange mix of average at everything, I had most of my height really early on and my uncle was my YMCA coach and always had me playing under the rim and actually learned a decent amount of post stuff. But as I got older and kept playing, kids caught up to me so 6'2" wasn't that great and I had to start learning how to dribble, face people up, jump shooting and so on. Just never got great at anything, I spend most of my pickup games under the basket collecting the trash.

What are your guys' opinions on people screaming/yelling/clapping at someone while they take a jumpshot? I think that poo poo is annoying as hell...

I've probably yelled at a few people taking a jump shot but if your doing it constantly its just annoying and immature.
