Suns rookie Marquese Chriss wants to dunk on DeAndre Jordan

Marquese Chriss

Phoenix Suns rookie big man Marquese Chriss has lofty goals coming into the 2016-17 season, and he is looking to start things off with a bang.

Chriss has been eyeing DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers, but it’s not to pattern his game after Jordan.

The 6-foot-9 forward recently told FanSided’s Ian Levy in a that one of the things he’d really like to do in the league is dunk on Jordan.

That’s a pretty high goal considering Jordan is one of the league’s best rim protectors. Not only is Jordan one of the best shot-blockers in the league but he has also made the last two NBA All-Defensive teams.

Chriss sounds much like a young Shawn Kemp, who came into the NBA saying he wanted to dunk on every all-star, but ironically may have accomplished his goal one way or another.

Marquese Chriss’ vertical leap is measured at 38.5 inches, but it’s going to take more than just that to posterize Jordan the way his favorite dunkers – Vince Carter,Kobe Bryant, and Shaquille O’Neal – used to do to players.
