    He weighs 285 pounds and just set the Duke vertical leap
    record. So, he's basically walking around on a pair of falcon9 rockets.

    Is Justin Robinson undergoing a Robinsonian growth spurt? I seem to remember he was closer to 6'7 before.

    maybe I'm wrong, but I think these "measurements" are self reported...I know in the past you could look at roster "measurements" from year to year and sometimes they would could not be reconciled
    with various comments from the coaching staff...
    p.s. Williamson was officially measured in October and he was an even 6-5 without shoes...so yeah, he's kind of 6-7 in basketball terms...

    I think Duke did their combine today so those measurements might be accurate.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Not saying it's not true, but it seems hard to believe. At 285 lbs, he can vertically leap higher than: Grant Hill, Grayson Allen, Corey Maggette, Gerald Henderson?

    That's hard to believe, but scary good if true.

    Yeah, DukeMBB posted a video today of the team doing combine tests, which they do every summer. Zion reaches the top of the max vert bar and reportedly set a Duke record on that test. 285 is a little surprising though, he looks slimmer than in his high school videos. Maybe heís somehow managed to add even more muscle?

    Aside from Zion we are actually kind of a skinny team. Good height and athleticism across the board though.

    I suspect Maggette and Hill predated this testing at Duke. But I'd not be shocked if Zion outjumped Hill. Maggette might be a different story. Henderson actually had a surprisingly low (for him) vertical at the NBA combine. Allen's number was quite good, but not outlandish either. Also, we don't know if it is the highest vertical or highest max reach (highest point at which a player reached on his leap). If it was the latter, then the height and reach advantage Zion has over Henderson and Allen would play into things.

    Muscle is heavy and purposeful.

    I would think the videos make it very easy to believe...

    But doing some math, if his standing reach of 8'7" is accurate, and the tweet of 2.3' above the rim is true, that comes out to about a 44.6" vertical. That would be 2nd highest all time at the NBA combine (going back to 2000), and in the top 10 historically depending on how accurate some reported numbers were (not sure I believe Wilt having a 48inch vertical). His weight of 285(!) puts him up there with maybe only Lebron and Wilt to move that kind of mass as high as he does (though even those two didn't play that heavy). He is a truly amazing physical specimen - let's hope his basketball skills (and health) can keep up.

    For your reference:
    Grayson 40.5
    Corey 39-40
    Gerald 35
    Grant unavailable

    I think we tend to overestimate vertical numbers based on how easily or quickly some guys dunk. At 6'8", Grant didn't really need an insane vertical to dunk like he did - none of his most famous dunks have his head anywhere near the rim. He was just such an amazingly graceful and yet explosive athlete that we feel like he must have been jumping higher.

    Here is the video of Zion's vertical measurement.

    Zion weighs more than 100 lbs more than Alex, and they're about the same height. That's just insane. In fact 1 AOC is about 1/2 of a Beejay Anya or Sean May.

    Didn't Dawkins have a 42" vertical, or something close?

    I know he had springs for legs, and a jackknife for a waist.

    We'll have to hope all season that Zion doesn't get real hungry one night and have AOC for a snack.

    And then there was David Thompson. 44"? 48"? 50"? Depends which video you watch after Googling DT. Here's the 44" video.

    He's still the greatest college player I've ever seen.
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    FWIW, I was told a few years back that Carmen Wallace had the highest vertical of any Duke player in K's tenure. Didn't have an exact number, however. Wallace graduated in 1997, btw.


    And yes, some of these numbers can be a bit iffy. I'm sure I'm not the only person who recalls DeMarcus Nelson suddenly becoming 6-4 as a senior.

    This is the funniest thing I have read on here in quite some time. Great image. Well played.
