We know that most NBA players can dunk the ball without problems but the question is who has the highest vertical leap in NBA History. We remember great leapers in history like Michael Jordan, Dominik Wilkins, Julius Erwing etc. When we talking about active players then we mention always LeBron James, Gerald Green, Nate Robinson, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin.
