Perhaps Myles Garrett was still upset with the Cleveland Browns' 0-16 season.
Perhaps he was inspired by all those LeBron highlights he's seen since moving to Cleveland.
Perhaps he just wanted to ruin this kid's day.
Whatever the reason, here's a clip of the NFL's 2017 No. 1 overall pick sending some poor sap's dunk attempt into another galaxy:

That clip comes from Twitter user @Greg_2k who happened to find Garrett hanging out at his local LA Fitness.
Garrett's incredible bounce shouldn't come as too much of a surprise considering he recorded a 41-inch Vertical Jump at the Combine, but that doesn't make this video any less enjoyable. If anything, it serves as a reminder of what a rare athletic talent the 6-foot-4, 272-pound defensive end truly is. While the Browns might've made history in 2017 for all the wrong reasons, Garrett had a strong rookie campaign. After missing the first four games of the season, he totaled 31 tackles and 7 sacks. Pro Football Focus gave Garrett an 88.4 grade on the year, which ranked 12th-best among all NFL edge defenders.
