5'10" Sixers PG Pierre Jackson Gets Above the Rim on Alley-Oop off the Ceiling

Posted on at

At 5'10", Philadelphia 76ers rookie Pierre Jackson doesn’t stand too high off the ground.

But when he jumps, the former D-League sensation could easily kiss the clouds.

Jackson's predraft max vertical jump was 42.5 inches back in 2013, and the video above further cements the notion that this dude can fly.

Jackson launched a basketball toward the ceiling, where the ball hit off a beam, fell back to the floor and then bounced off the backboard. That's when the 24-year-old took flight.

The Sixers might not be a playoff team—OK, they definitely won't be a playoff team—but with young freaks like Jackson, they'll at least be fun to watch.
