Meet Jaylen Brown. He is a 17-year-old, 6-7 wing that hails from Marietta, Georgia. Some say he reminds them of 2014 second overall Draft pick Jabari Parker with more athleticism.

The human body has its limits, after all, and most of basketball’s rarest slams are performed by those who count dunking as a habit instead of the game itself. There’s just something extra compelling about the best high-level, in-game dunkers even if you can’t exactly put your finger on it.
