Mark was wondering why some people prefer to jump off two feet and others off of one. Back in the mid eighties when I was working with the Bulls I saw it up close. Charles Oakley, could not jump off one foot. Tex Winter, one of the assistants, felt it was really hindering him. We tried a bunch of stuff to try to get him to jump off one foot, but under pressure he always reverted. Conversely in testing vertical jump on the Vertec with Michael Jordan, he was terrible off two feet. When he took a step and went off one foot the difference was unbelievable. In short I think it represents a personal preference and it may represent where you play on the floor. Certainly with young kids I think it advisable to devise games that encourage all types of take offs.
