Derrick Jones Jr , aka as airplane mode, will be competing in this years slam dunk contest. This will also be the second time Jones Jr. competes in the slam dunk contest as he looks for his first victory. His first appearance took place in 2017 when he primarily played in the G-league.
This is great news as weve been expecting Jones Jr to recieve an invite for weeks now. He’ll join Dwight Howard as the other participant in the slam dunk contest so far.
This should be the start of a lot of Heat representation in Chicago for all star weekend. The way the standings are currently, Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra should be coaching one of the teams. Also expected in Chicago are soon to be all stars Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler. Along with Duncan Robinson who should be participating in the three point contest , and Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro who should be in the rising stars game.
Derrick Jones Jr. is by far one of the best high flyers in the league so It should be very exciting to see him put on a show all star weekend. Down below is a video that includes some of Jones Jr. best dunks.
