How would you like to be playing a game of pickup basketball at your local rec center, and then the next thing you know, Myles Garrett is involved in the action?
In a video posted to Twitter by @mntgoo, the Cleveland Browns’ first overall pick from a year ago can be seen dunking the ball during a pickup game, presumably at Texas A&M’s recreation center.
A week or so earlier, Garrett’s hops were also captured as he went straight up to deny a basket:

Let’s just hope he doesn’t suffer an ankle-turner.
The most notable athlete I’ve played with during my recreation time is Chauncey Billups at the CSU recreation center in back-to-back years (in town for the NBA Finals). Several years ago, I heard that Josh Gordon had been up there at least once.
