Derrick Jones Jr. can literally fly whenever the ball is anywhere in the atmosphere. He showed off his prime time dunking skills during the 2020 slam dunk competition in Chicago, a competition that he won under heavy controversy.
After his win, Twitter user and volleyball player @britt__robinson took to the popular social media site and revealed that the Miami Heat star jumped in her direct messages on Instagram just four years ago. She curved him, but it was because she had a boyfriend at the time and she wasn’t trying to cheat on him.
Well, her boyfriend turned out to be a piece of crap and now she regrets it.
At the time of the exchange, Robinson was playing volleyball for University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, while Jones was preparing for the 2016 NBA Draft where he would be undrafted. He ended up signing as a free agent with the Phoenix Suns.
Somebody told her to go and rekindle the flame, but she pointed out that he is now married with kids.
Jones Jr. averaging 8.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game for the Heat.
