With the Nuggets fighting the injury bug this past month, R.J. Hampton has had the opportunity to showcase not only his potential as a significant role player in the NBA, but also as an incredibly athletic and exciting dunker. In fact, he’s the exact type of dunker that is often showcased during All-Star weekend in the dunk contest. Unfortunately, R.J. Hampton will have to wait a while to prove his dunking abilities on the big stage.
kinda mad I can’t be in the dunk contest in game dunks will have to do for this year— 14 (@RjHampton14) March 3, 2021
Fortunately for Nuggets fans, however, we will undoubtedly have plenty of examples of Hampton’s athleticism in the years to come. After all, in just a few weeks of being a regular part of the rotation, he has already had two impressive dunks that have captivated the attention of NBA fans.
I think Hampton has made it pretty clear that should he ever be invited to the dunk contest during all-star weekend, he will put on quite the display.
