I'm 27 I'd been trying to dunk since I was 20 when I started to play basketball often. I easily get over the rim. I missed way more than I made until one day...listen it sounds so obvious but its the only thing I can tell you and do this...you literally have to put the ball in lol. I missed so many dunks hitting the back of the rim. Just jump don't rush and put the ball in. I can dunk now with two hands off vert. Just elevate hang a little and just put the ball in the hole. Trust me its obvious but its the only tip I can give

I'm with Louis calves raises will help lil da rest is you. I'm 23 and 6'1. Windmills and 360s and 720s is out of my reach too for right now. The most you goin to get from me is a reverse and alleys. I mean if you want to do it just keep trying and go up strong. When get it and you dunk on somebody man it feel good. Have that manĀ  asking himself "why he do that me. I did nothing to him"
