The 2014 NBA Draft Class gathered in New York for the annual Rookie Photo Shoot on Sunday.

Amid the flash bulbs, rookies showed off their leaping abilities and trading card company Panini captured most of the dunks on Vine.

It appears the league is in good (high-flying) hands.

  1. Tekoa says:

    It was definitely Emiid had the best dunk… But it’s actually good to see him out with the guys, hope he can join his fellow rooks’ in throwing it down soon!

  2. TheKush says:

    The Brazilian Kevin Durant 2 years away from being two years away! Josh Huestis you need to stop bruh!

  3. brock says:

    Of course lavine and robinson were best among them.

  4. LoveFromSingapore says:

    Lavine has hops… earlier in the summer league there was this Nick Johnson (leftie) who has a great leap too.
