Your Next NBA Dunk Contest Champion Could Be Unknown D-league Player

The NBA dunk contest will take place on February 18th. When the participants were announced on February 2nd many people had to turn to the internet to figure out who Derrick Jones Jr. was. Those who did look him up were not disappointed.

Jones Jr. has a legitimate chance at winning the competition. He has the athleticism that could match last years champion Zach Lavine. He has spent most of this season with the Northern Arizona Suns in the D-league. He will be the first D-league player to ever compete in the contest.

With two of the other contestants being bigger guys who can dunk hard, but probably not as stylishly, Jones Jr.'s main competition looks like it will be Aaron Gordon. Gordon finished 2nd last year but was definitely impressive.

Watch his highlights below and decide for yourself if he has a chance.
