There really isn't a height restriction, it's all about how high you can get yourself to jump. Strength in all of the leg muscles and knowing the right way to approach a dunk can help any-sized person.

You could be really tall but not be able to dunk while you could be really short but have a lot of jumping ability and can dunk.
