Sacramento Kings' Nik Stauskas throws down dunks (Video)

Sacramento Kings rookie Nik Stauskas, along with the rest of his freshman class, took part in the Panini America rookie photo shoot today and needless to say, there was plenty of down time.

Nik took part in an AMA Reddit with fellow rookies though there weren’t too many Kings specific related questions directed toward the former Michigan Wolverine.

In addition to participating in the Q&A session, Nik Stauskas also decided to throw down some dunks.

While a few of the slams were likely done for photographers so they could capture the Kings rookie in a ‘playing scenario’, a few of the other dunks were all for fun.

Early in the day as the players were waiting for their opportunity to be photographed, they started a Twitter challenge where one rookie would dunk and then challenge another rookie on social media to one-up them. Stauskas decided to help out in the challenge as evidenced below.

Solid as that was, Nik wasn’t involved very much. This one however, was all Stauskas and was probably my favorite of the day.

Some questioned Nik Stauskas’ athletic ability coming out of college, but I’m pretty sure this will end any looming speculation regarding that.

Dude had no trouble playing above the rim when needed.
