Oregon basketball fans are no stranger to Jordan Bell dunks. Golden State Warriors fans, however, are still a bit new to the 22-year-old rookie. No matter. They can certainly get used to plays like this:

The game, of course, against the Dallas Mavericks, was well in hand by the time Bell decided to put on his own dunk contest. The Warriors were up 119-94 with less than three minutes remaining. No better time to toss one off the glass to yourself.
After three years in Eugene, the final of which featured a Final Four appearance, Bell was taken with the 38th overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft, which would have put Bell on the Chicago Bulls had the Warriors not traded $3.5 million for the pick.
At the moment, it seems a good fit.
