The diameter of an NBA Basketball is just under 9.5 inches. The height of an NBA rim is 10 feet off the ground. Therefore, a minimum height of 10' 91/2' would be required to slam dunk.

In NBA the hoop is 10 feet high. So if you were 5' 6'' you would have to jump 3-4 feet depending on your wingspan.
