When the camera is rolling, Cassius Stanley has an uncanny knack for filling its storage space with showstopper dunks. On Thursday afternoon, Stanley shared an Instagram post where he skied off the hardwood and threw down a dunk that seems like it should only be possible in video games.

Stanley jokingly commented on the post that the purpose of the dunk was because he was “checking to see if [he] still got it.” If that under-the-legs left-handed slam where his forehead nearly hit the rim was any indication, Stanley is still the elite player he was when he left Duke a few months ago.

Joining the list of stunned witnesses to Stanley's dunk is the 2018-19 NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, who added in some playful banter of his own on Twitter. Antetokounmpo claims that "its gotta be the shoes" in regards to what is allowing Stanley to seemingly transcend the normal laws of physics.
