Get up young fella, get up.
If you’ve seen any of Derrick Jones Jr.’s high school mixtapes (below), you know this dude can get up. There’s elite bounce, and then there’s a level after that. Well Derrick Jones Jr. is about two levels above that. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such effortless lift. Dude gets to rim level with ease. And while that’s all well and good in a dunk contest, it’s even more impressive to see it in a game. And knowing now what he can go when it’s live, I’m gonna expect dunks like this on a weekly basis. God damn it’s good to have college hoops back.
P.S. Thanks for showing up NMHU
Here’s Jones Jr.’s highlights from a dunk contest. Dude was a senior in high school putting up more impressive dunks than 98% of the NBA.
