Also that isn't a true vertical jump as he was moving.
FWIW a true vertical jump of 4' would be higher than Vince Carter, Kobe Bryant, Jason Richardson, and Lebron James.
Yeah, GSP doesn't have a 4' vertical. A vertical jump is measured from either bottom of the foot to the ground with a "straight leg," not extremely flexed hip-flexors or more traditionally measured by touching a high object. Nonetheless, I've always admired how much emphasis GSP puts on plyometrics, he's one of the few fighters that I consider a very smart trainer. I credit a lot of his shooting speed to the explosive training he does.
