This video of Team USA's minicamp dunk practice may only be a minute long, but you better carve out at least 10 minutes to fully enjoy the experience. As soon as you see DeAndre Jordan jump so high he has to duck in the first throwdown, you'll know this needs to be on loop.
What does this have that's not to like?
We have Damian Lillard bringing the ball all the way down and then back up for a slam, Harrison Barnes throwing alley-oops to Greg Monroe and Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins getting their 360 on.
It's all here, and the sight should be terrifying to international opponents. This U.S. squad can dunk with a vengeance. They have hops, and they aren't afraid to use them.
Jordan is the show-stopper here, though. Maybe it's just something about that last name.
Even when followed up by Dion Waiters' through-the-legs dunk, the Los Angeles Clippers' big man stands out. Any time a player emerges from the bottom of the screen and elevates with ease to the point that he's almost looking right at the rim, you might wonder if he's using a trampoline.
That's just what Jordan does, and there's a reason he's the only player in the video who gets to show off twice.
Sit back, enjoy the slams and then rinse and repeat.
It's a great preview for what you'll be seeing when this team isn't just practicing.
