Watch as dunk champion Jason Richardson’s son pulls down a nasty slam

Jason Richardson gets a little overlooked in the channels of basketball history. Though he somehow never made an All-Star appearance, in the mid-2000s he had a five-year track record of averaging about 20 points, six rebounds and three assists per game while also being a good 3-point shooter. He played a key role in a number of playoff appearances, including helping the Phoenix Suns win the Western Conference championship. However, his true legacy was built in dunk competition.

He won it two years in a row 2002 And 2003his final dunk of 2003, in which he snatched NBA players off the bench to ambush him, causing the announcer to exclaim, “I saw something I’ve never seen before!”

Anyway, here’s his 15-year-old son Jaxon slam dunking:

He managed the 360. The one hand. The power on two legs. However, I’m not sure we’ve ever seen his pops combine the three into a single dunk.

For a kid his age, that’s an incredible achievement. Richardson, a 6-foot-5 small forward, is beginning his second season at Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) alongside his older brother Jace, a 6-foot-2 guard who is considered a four-star player.

Jace has 14 college offers, according to 247Sports, while Jaxon has yet to receive any – but given his height and athleticism, that could change sooner or later.

We hope to one day see him in the NBA Dunk Contest as well.
