Rio Grande Valley Vipers guard Jarvis Threatt walked into Barclays a relative unknown and after an eye opening performance in the 2015 NBA D-League dunk contest, walked out a dunk contest winner and with his name on the minds of scouts, coaches, gm's and fans who were on hand. The former Delaware Blue Hen guard averaged 18 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.4 assist and 2.5 steals per game last season and was impressive in leading Delaware to the 2014 NCAA Tournament with a win over William & Mary in the CAA Championship, winning Tournament MVP honors in the process. Threatt was ultimately dismissed last summer by Delaware for violations of team rules. Threatt decided to hire an agent and turned pro to get ready for the 2015 NBA Draft. By the looks of things, Threatt a Richmond, VA native, is adjusting to the pro game well and looks to be well on his way to getting his opportunity on the NBA stage sooner rather then later. Watch his exploits in the dunk contest below.
