I'm only 6'2" and I can dunk. first off you have to do a lot of leg work. I did mostly squats, legpress, leg extensions and leg curls. But, probably the most important thing you need to do is plyometrics to increase your explosive strength.
One thing you have to keep in mind is though that once you start doing all this legwork you're going to notice a slight decrease in your vetical because it takes some time for you body to learn how to use the new muscle.
When I was lifting hardcore I was noticing significant speed increases but my vertical was about the same. Then I stopped lifting because of school and like two months later I was dunking with ease, like on a whim. The first time i did it, I wasn't sure I did and my friend was like, did you just dunk? So yeah you have to be patient
