Kenyon Martin Jr is already more than just the son of the legendary NBA player Kenyon Martin.

The Houston Rockets forward is considered one of the best dunkers in the NBA and deservedly earned the invitation to the All-Star Slam Dunk Contest.

Shortly after the media reported his participation in the event, he delivered one of the best dunks of the season after taking off just inside the free-throw line against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

His impressive dunk was named the play of the night and was included in the top-10 plays along with another dunk that he slammed after collecting an offensive rebound.
