I was always short. They always said I’d have a growth spurt. Never did. Ended up a half inch taller than @Human
My cousin was my height then grew 10 inches in one year he’s 6 foot+ tall. My mom said I’d be like him possibly but she was wrong.
I was probably 4 foot 11 when I went into high school. Only grew another 5 inches or so after that.
I touched the rim once on a ten foot basketball hoop when I was shorter than I am now. I was also fat. That helped me jump I dunno why cuz when I lost weight I lost a bit of my hops. Never got back to my 40 inch vertical leap I measured.
