Anybody who has ever trained can tell you that you add 3-6 inches with a two-step VJ vs. a standing VJ. When you look at the NBA combine numbers and factor in the two-step VJ, the math adds up. If we figure that Kevin Durant is 6'9" with shoes then that puts him at 81 inches tall. He measured a 33.5" standing VJ, so lets round up to 34" to make the math easy. That means that from a standing a position, his head reaches 115 inches (81+34=115), which is only 5 inches away from the rim. If you give him a multi-step start (momentum, and whatnot) and make the mathematical adjustments, then that puts his head at rim-level -- which is pretty much what we see during games.

The NBA combine numbers are fine (at least when it comes to the VJ). The 45" VJ is a myth.

Put another way: if Michael Jordan really had the 48" VJ that some people like to claim, then his head would be a full half-foot above the rim on a simple VJ. Does that make even the slightest bit of sense?
