New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram is 5'10" and 215 pounds ... but dude SWEARS he can dunk a basketball ... and he's willing to prove it.

The former Heisman Trophy winner was hanging out in Indianapolis last night, getting ready to take in the Super Bowl ... when we started talkin' hoops.

Ingram -- who's still nursing a busted foot -- told us, "I CAN dunk ... if you don't believe me ... when my foot gets right, we can go to a court ... and you put your money where your mouth is."

Hey Mark -- we're down when you are ... LET'S DO THIS!!!

If he can palm a basketball he's halfway there. It's not all about how high you can jump, you still need to have a grip on the ball.

in the end it doesn't matter if he can dunk at 5'-10", because Spud Webb won a slam competition, and he's listed at 5'-7"

Wow one of millions of people who can dunk a basketball. I bet he can wipe his own ass also, intriguing.

Being 5'10" and dunking isn't that special. There are guys who played in the NBA that size or smaller who have dunked. When I was in high school a guy at my school could dunk who was 5'6" (for the fact yes he was Black)
