Did you know that basketball hoops in the NBA are 10 feet off the ground? That means if you want to dunk, you have to jump really high! Of course, it’s easier to reach if you’re taller, but can working on your jump help you gain more height? Or can tall people just already jump higher? We asked sports doctor Ed Laskowski to help us find the answer.
