NBA Rookies Throw It Down During a Photo Shoot

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffAugust 6, 2013

NBA rookies posed in their brand new jerseys for the first time in the NBA's rookie photo shoot, and to unwind after a tough day of shooting, they threw down the most impressive dunks in their repertoire. 

Yahoo! Sports spotted these Vines of rookies Tony Mitchell, Shabazz Muhammad, Trey Burke, Peyton Siva and Archie Goodwin putting on a show, and if they're any indication of the future of the NBA, we should be excited.

Pistons rookie Tony Mitchell (who jumped so high during the NBA Combine that they had to raise the vertical bar) threw down the most ferocious dunk of all by slamming two balls in one hoop.

Phoenix's Archie Goodwin (who, we'll remind you, just turned 18) went Jason Richardson on this dunk.

Another Pistons rookie, Peyton Siva, threw a behind-the-back alley-oop to Shabazz Muhammad on this first video before going behind the back again on a half-court shot in the second video.

Finally, this Tim Hardaway Jr. to Tony Mitchell to Trey Burke dunk might be our favorite, as it combines three teams getting together and finishing with a 6'0" PG throwing it down off the backboard.
