J.J. Watt, a football player for the Houston Texans, dunked a basketball Thursday. 

Watt is working out as he recovers from off-season sports hernia surgery. (UPDATE: Watt insists it was not actually a sports hernia injury.)

In this exciting video of a man dunking a basketball, after a slow-motion crossover, Watt drives down the lane and grazes the rim on a one-handed slam that appears to take place in a college gymnasium. To be completely honest, I'm not sure if this rim is at a regulation height, but then again, Watt is listed at 6'5" and appears to be stretching himself out.

Watt's dunk has already swept the nation, or at least his alma mater Wisconsin.
