Point guard Chris Paul isn’t known for his jumping ability but that didn’t stop the crafty veteran from winning the jump ball in Game 2 of the NBA All Star game.

Yes, you read that right – jump ball. He also threw down a slam dunk in the first half of the game.

First things first, Paul went up for the tip for Team LeBron as Team Durant sent out Mike Conley for their tip and the two looked, well, inexperienced.

The commentary by Chris Webber said it all.

“They don’t even know how to jump ball!” Webber said.

After a few false starts by CP3, he finally was able to swat it back to his teammates to the delight of Steph Curry on Team LeBron’s bench.

Conley certainly has a jumping pedigree that the Suns point god had to overcome.

Conley’s father won the Gold Medal in the 1992 Olympics in triple jump.

Paul was not done showing off his jumping prowess.

He was able to get to the rim later in the game and throw down a slam dunk off an alley-oop pass from Curry.

According to NBA.com, Paul hasn’t had a dunk in the regular season since the 2015-16 season.
