Jay Z’s Nephew Dunks on Two High School Superstars
Jay Z's known for leaping to the top of the charts. His nephew, 6'6" Nahziah Carter, is known for leaping a foot-and-a-half above the rim and over defenders. He showcased his incredible bounce during a couple of games in Nike's 2017 EYBL League (an AAU league) this past weekend.
The first target we see is Marvin Bagley III, a 6'11" small forward ESPN ranks as the No. 1 player in the class of 2018. In the clip, we see the lanky Carter sprinting down the court during a fast break as he makes his way to the rim. From there, we see Bagley try to contest the dunk himself, but to no avail. He gets viciously posterized.
In another video, we see Carter, who, according to Zags Blog, is being recruited by Georgetown, streaking toward the middle of the lane where he receives a pass and explodes for a two-handed dunk over a helpless defender.
Here's the thing about that "helpless defender": he's actually not all that helpless. In fact, he's a 7'1" center who ESPN ranks as the 40th best player in the high school class of 2018. He's received offers from virtually every major division one basketball program in the country. So, yeah, this dunk was no easy feat.
Jay, who recently signed a $200 million deal with Live Nation, was there in attendance for one of Carter's games on Saturday.
You can peep both dunks for yourself below. Peep the picture of Jay at his nephew's game below the videos.
