WATCH: Jaren Jackson Jr. absolutely posterizes Nikola Mirotic

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Memphis Grizzlies rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. is certainly known for his athleticism and ability to dunk all over the court.

That was not lost on New Orleans Pelicans veteran Nikola Mirotic as the two did battle on Martin Luther King Day in Memphis on Monday.

Check out Jackson absolutely posterizing Mirotic on his way to a thunderous dunk.

We’re legitimately surprised that the youngster didn’t bring down the end backboard with that massive dunk.

Also, what in the world was this defense from Mirotic? He didn’t even attempt to block the shot.

Maybe the veteran was simply making a business decision that will put him on posters the world over from here on out.
