Brooklyn Nets big man Jarrett Allen has racked up a bunch of poster blocks this season, swatting some of the very best players in the league at the rim. Well, now, he is adding poster dunks to his arsenal.

Now, to be fair to McGee, this wasn't a poster in the traditional sense, as McGee was trailing Allen when he threw it down, but this was still a sweet move by Allen and gave you a taste of his athleticism.
Not only has Allen put together a nice highlight reel this season, but he has played well in general. On the year overall, he is averaging 11.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.6 blocks over 26.6 minutes per game while shooting 58.9 percent from the floor and 71.7 percent from the free-throw line.
The 20-year-old, who played his collegiate basketball at the University of Texas, was originally selected by Brooklyn in the first round (22nd pick overall) of the 2017 NBA Draft.
That represented the only first-round draft pick the Nets had between 2016 and 2018 due to their crippling trade with the Boston Celtics back in the summer of 2013, but they certainly made the most of it.
Jarrett Allen immediately showed his skills during his rookie campaign, registering 8.2 points, 5.4 boards and 1.2 blocks across 20 minutes a night while making 58.9 percent of his field goal attempts and 77.6 percent of his free throws.
Brooklyn improved to 38-36 with the win.
