Former Duke basketball star Cassius Stanley recently threw down an absurd dunk.

Stanley, who is in the 2020 NBA draft class, posted a video Thursday of him showing off his insane athleticism, and this dunk is mind-boggling. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

He lobbed the ball to himself, caught it and what happened next was nothing short of incredible. Watch the insane dunk below.

I honestly don’t even understand how it’s possible for some people to be that athletic. I’m a white dude who is just over 6’0″ on a good day, and I struggle to grab the net.

Stanley is out here jumping high enough to kiss the rim if he wanted to. How is it possible that we’re both the same species and so different?

I don’t even know what I would do with my life if I had that kind of athleticism. I guess I would just spend all day at the gym dunking.

Again, it blows my mind that there are people walking around the planet capable of doing what Stanley did in the video above.

I have no idea how good Stanley will be in the NBA, but there’s no doubt he’ll be one of the most athletic players in the league from the moment he’s drafted.

The dude is a freak of nature.
