Miami Hurricanes forward Tonye Jekiri made a move on the court that reminded everyone of Kevin Durant.
Miami Hurricanes forward Tonye Jekiri is very tall, lanky and absolutely skilled with the basketball in his hands. With his build and the skills that he has on the court, he kind of reminds people of Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant with his style of play.
Against the Florida State Seminoles, Jekiri made a move just like the one Durant usually makes while on the fast break.
With a full head of steam down the court, Jekiri used tremendous balance and control to shake off a defender all the way to the hoop.
Just like Durant, he pulled back to his left with the ball and the defender lost control and went flying out of bounds, as Jekiri finished it off with an impressive slam.
There’s not too many people at seven-foot-tall that can make athletic moves like that, let alone even having the control necessary to pull off such a thing, but Jekiri is a very skilled ball player on the court.
Big men like Jekiri shouldn’t be able to make moves like that, which makes him an even more exciting talent to watch every game.
