I think he's just lazy. Maybe he will slip...

Pretty sure that 48" is an urban legend...
Back when he was playing, I thought it was widely known that Jordan's vert was 36" (that's what I remember). Now, I'm reading it was 48"?...which means he could touch the top of the backboard from a standing position? Don't think so.
I'm betting it was a lot closer to 36". Kobe (an inch taller than Jordan) is listed as 38" vert and he can do all the dunks Jordan could (free throw line etc.).
