Shortly after showing you an insane poster dunk thrown down by Tennessee freshman Keon Johnson on Wednesday evening, we bring a ridiculous dunk from the NBA ranks.

During the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Denver Nuggets rookie R.J. Hampton stole a pass and led a 3-on-2 fast break. Hampton decided to just keep it, and at full-speed, threw down a nasty poster jam on Cleveland’s Cedi Osman.

Here’s how the Nuggets’ bench reacted:


Hampton — the 24th overall pick of the 2020 draft — had a career-high nine points in the Nuggets’ 133-95 win over the Cavs.

As for Osman, well, even if he can mentally recover from that dunk, he’ll likely still have nightmares of it for a long time.
