Saturday night, Pat Connaughton managed an amazing athletic display during the NBA’s Slam Dunk Contest. Even though the judges (especially Dwyane Wade) didn’t show as much with their scoring, the Bucks guard put on a rim-rocking spectacle with a series of thunderous dunks that found him leaping over Christian Yelich and Giannis Antetokounmpo…and sporting some White Men Can’t Jump cosplay.
Though Connaughton’s commendable performance was easily the best showing in the short and unspectacular history of Milwaukee Bucks in the Slam Dunk Contest, it’s safe to say Marques Johnson just gave him a run for his money.
Today, the 64-year-old former Bucks forward (and current Bucks analyst) posted a video on Twitter that showed he still has at least some of the hops he routinely showcased during his Hall Of Fame playing career. Not only can Johnson still dunk on a 10-foot hoop, he’s able to do so while leaping over TWO HARD SHELL TACOS.

What more is there to say? Marques Johnson, 64, is able to clear two tacos on his way to dunking on a regulation size basketball hoop. We, 35, got winded clearing the snow off our car today.
