Well, I'm 5'2 or 5'3 but I'm still young. I was just wondering the minimum height to dunk. Do you have to jump really high when you reach the minimum height?

6 5" or in my fathers case 5 6"
depends on how high u can jump
with an "average" vertical leap I'd say about 6'4". Of course if you're smaller than that you can still dunk, you'll just need to be able to jump higher (which is all about improving leg strength).
It all depends on how high you can jump really. You could be over 6 foot, but have no hops. Take for example:
Jason Kidd, (6'4) he can't dunk to save his life,
Nate Robinson (5'7) can jump out of the gym.
Although, if you combine height with athleticism, the AVERAGE dunking height is 6'4.
Anthony "Spud" Webb, a 12 year NBA basketball superstar, was 5'7" and had an amazing 42 inch vertical jump.
Ummmmmmmmm................................. is no definitive answer here. Somewhere between Nate Robinson and Shawn Bradley. But I think the answer is any height at which you can get your hand over 10 foot tall or your goal under 5 foot good luck hope that helps. OOOH or become black.
If you're black there is no height requirement. For white people, I've seen people over 6'9 who are unable to dunk. It's sad.
The average height for someone in shape to dunk is about 6'1.....But there have been alot of small dunkers like Spud Webb & Nate Robinson who stand 5'7 & 5'9...Allen Iverson can also dunk and he is 6'0.Its not really about height, it has more to do with leg strength....
There is no average height really. You see Shaq at 7 feet dunking and Nate Robinson dunkin at 5 foot 9. Also Spud Webb was 5 foot 5 when he won the slam dunk competition.
6 feet!! Allen Iverson used to dunk when he was younger and he is only 6 feet.
Depends on the jumping ability, 6'1" or 2"
I dont think there is any average age to dunk a ball. If you can jump well you make a jump and put it in.
probably around 6'4. depending on how high you jump.
