How many of you can relate to this video of Jalen Cone at the CP3 Rising Stars camp? Isn’t it common for 5’8 ballers or 8th graders to throw down windmill dunks off the bounce?

When I was in middle school, I was still just throwing down 1-hand, 2-hand and reverse dunks on (real) low rims and I thought that one kid who could grab the rim was the coolest kid in school.  But that was back in the day when people considered 6’2 Robert Pack and 6’1 Kevin Johnson “little man dunkers.”  Now we under 6 foot 8th graders putting defenders on posters and middle school dunk contests like this!
