    Eliminate weight cutting. Have Pride rules!
    The average player is 6"5 or 6"6

    The height for the rim has not changed I heard im decades or a century is this true?

    1 arm reached up surely adds 2 feet minimum as the average human arm is 2 feet. This means the close to or 7 foot or taller players can just about touch the rim without jumping

    They should so we can see people selectively breed 10' tall humans. Life will find a way

    imagine a knee buckling on that landing.... It's already brutal when they are in the air for a dunk and get hit and land awkwardly on their knees or ankles with bones splitting out.

    Yeah, by at least ten feet.

    Also, make it vibrating.

    No way, the hight is fine. There are less 7 footers than there used to be and the slam dunk is one of the most exciting plays in the game.
