Aaron Brooks Pulled Off a Julius Erving-esque Layup


Honestly, I had no idea Aaron Brooks playing NBA basketball was still a thing. I tuned out of his roller coaster career after he went to China to avoid the 2011 NBA lockout. But hey, the tiny guard out of Oregon is definitely still in the league and has been quite the revelation for the Chicago Bulls.

He continued his impressive play Tuesday night, dropping 13 points, six assists, and four rebounds in a victory over the Wizards. Of his 13 points, no two were sweeter than the circus layup he pulled off in transition in the third quarter (shown above).

Some fans on Twitter had the same thoughts after seeing that basket:
