The league has seen many-an-athlete to don an NBA jersey, but among them, there’s a list of very special talents.
Kenyon Martin, who came into the league as an explosive leaper out of the University of Cincinnati was one of the impressive athletes that commanded respect for his ability to block shots and his rim-rattling dunks.
His son, 15-year-old Kenyon Martin, Jr. has shown that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, as he elevated for a left-handed alley-oop finish, taped by K-Mart himself.

Martin, Jr. is a 6-foot-6 sophomore at West Hills Chaminade High School in California — and while he didn’t play basketball as a freshman and is still refining some parts of his game, the height and the hops are there, making him yet another attractive west coast prospect on the map if he can polish himself up into a rising product.
