Vertical Jump Distances of NBA and WNBA

These are some of the estimated vertical jump distances for well-known NBA players. These are said to be "stand-still" vertical jumps, and we don't know if these are "average" vertical jumps or "best ever" vertical jumps.

David Thompson: 48 inches
Darrell Griffith: 48 inches
Spud Webb: 46 inches
Vince Carter: 43 inches
Michael Jordan: 43 inches
Julius Erving: 41 inches
Shaquille O'Neal: 32 inches

Now, some vertical jump distances for WNBA players.

Deanna Nolan: 34 inches
Candace Parker: 28 inches
Lisa Leslie: over 20 inches, at least

I don't know why I put this up, but I thought it was interesting.
