Video: Kings rookie Ben McLemore can fly
The seventh pick in the 2013 draft is primarily known for his picture-perfect jump shot and shooting prowess. As a freshman at Kansas, he fell just short of the famed 50/40/90 shooting splits, finishing 49.5 percent from the field, 42 percent from three-point range and 87 percent from the free-throw line.
But the 6-foot-5, 195-pound shooting guard recently showed off his ridiculous ability as a dunker, too. In a video posted by the Kings, McLemore is seen throwing down a series of dunks that likely would fare pretty well in February's Dunk Contest. The slow-motion effect helps you appreciate just how high McLemore gets, particularly on the last dunk, where he can clearly be seen looking down at the rim.Unfortunately for McLemore, he had a little more success in this practice session than his NBA debut. The highly touted rookie shot just 1-of-7 overall and 1-of-5 from deep Wednesday. He finished with only four points in 17 minutes, but the Kings did manage to beat the Nuggets 90-88 in their opener.
