Yes, a lot. You have to know the projectory when jumping, and how much mass you have when jumping in order to know if you can slam dunk, not to mention the force of the ball going in the basket.

What is the meaning of slam duck?

A "slam dunk" is a basketball move in which an offensive player elevates towards the basket and powers the ball through the hoop from above; it is usually uncontested and indefensible. The slam dunk results in an easy 2 points. In slang, a "slam dunk" has come to mean any situation where the outcome is a foregone, positive conclusion - an easy win or an obvious decision. For example, to say that a runner with a 10-mile lead is going to win a marathon is a slam dunk; clearly the frontrunner has an insurmountable advantage and will win the race. Similarly, the decision to hire a credible, experienced worker over an untested, unreliable person is a slam dunk - obviously you would hire the credible, experienced worker, and you would be pleased with (but not surprised by) the predictable results.
