If your 5' 10 it depends on how long your arm is. Jumping 4 feet like the other person said would allow you to hit your head on the rim. You probably need about two feet to be able to dunk the Basketball. I am 5' 6 and I can almost dunk, NO JOKE! What helped me achieve this was an elite basketball program call The Vertical Leap and when following the steps right you can inproving dunking a lot. Or if you just want to know how high you can jump it's probably about 2 1/2 feet or 30 inches which is pretty good if you are dunking.
