Michael Jordan's vertical was unofficially measured at 48 inches during his playing career. The leaping ability brought Jordan to hundreds of highlight reel dunks and back-to-back NBA Slam Dunk titles in 1987 and 1988.
While vertical jumps are not officially kept, it is reported that Jordan shares the highest vertical leap with Darrell Griffith, as of 2014. Players with 46-inch vertical leaps are fellow NBA dunk champions Jason Richardson and Spud Webb. Considered by many to be the greatest basketball player ever, the 14-time all-star and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA titles in his career.
