Derrick Jones Shows Yet Again Why He’s A Freak Of Nature

The #DriveByDunkChallenge has produced a number of highlight jams, but none better than what former UNLV guard Derrick Jones Jr. did to an innocent basketball player on Friday.

Jones pulls up to a nearby basketball court where two young men are shooting near the basket. Then, while one of the players was facing the hoop, Jones peaks out from behind a post where he leaps over the flat-footed man to tomahawk an unbelievable dunk.

The full video of Jones’ jam is below.

WARNING: language in the video may be NSFW.

Ever since he stepped foot on the hardwood at the Thomas & Mack, many knew that Jones would be a special basketball player. At just 20 years old, Jones has found himself on an NBA roster with the Phoenix Suns.

Though he went undrafted in 2016, Jones has already created a name for himself at the professional level. His elite athletic ability should allow for a productive and exciting career over the next decade or so.

And, hopefully, more jaw-dropping dunks.
