Video: UNLV Freshman Derrick Jones Throws Down 2 Ridiculously Athletic Dunks

Derrick Jones, a UNLV freshman, dunks through the legs at practice.


Derrick Jones is months away from making his collegiate basketball debut for UNLV, but we feel pretty confident in saying that he will be one of the best dunkers in the sport next year. Jones, who chose the Runnin' Rebels over offers from schools like Arizona, Connecticut, Kentucky, and Syracuse, partnered with Team Flight Brothers to put together a short, but amazing, dunk reel. He only throws down two jams, but he really makes them count.

Anyone who can throw down a flawless windmill or through-the-legs dunk from a step inside the free throw line is worth watching. We can't wait to see Jones get out on fast breaks this season. He's absolutely electrifying.
