The Dallas Mavericks spent their first round pick in this year’s NBA Draft on NC State’s Dennis Smith Jr., who’ll likely be handed the team’s starting job at point guard when the regular season tips off.
Dallas saw immense potential from the 19-year-old Smith, whose scoring prowess is as impressive as his vision on the court. What the Mavs may not have discovered yet, though, is that the Fayetteville native is quite a beast at attacking the rim as well.
On Tuesday, some lucky guy witnessed Smith’s sheer athleticism in person, immediately tweeting a short clip of the Wolfpack standout throwing down a monster windmill dunk:

This isn’t actually the first time that Smith showed off his tremendous hops, as he’s been dunking all over his competition since back in high school. Nonetheless, seeing the 6-foot-2 rookie pulling off such a nasty dunk is quite the sight to behold. He’s no Spud Webb, but anytime a player of his size does something bananas like this it is just going to increase his stock not just in the eyes of NBA fans, but also the team that put faith in him as the next face of franchise.
Mark Cuban must be doing his best Mr. Burns impression right now.
