Social media began buzzing Friday night about an amazing performance from Stanley Johnson at the 2017 OVO Bounce basketball tournament.
Apparently, the third-year pro scored 86 points in the game. Eighty. Six. Points. Damn, maybe the young fella is ready to take hold of that starting small forward job after all.
The game is part of Drake’s OVO festival and always features plenty of NBA talent. This year included Brandon Jennings, Frank Kaminsky, Cory Joseph and Brady Heslip.
Unfortunately, the game was not televised, no official box score exists and we don’t have any way of knowing how he dominated, only that he dominated. Plenty of NBA players were in attendance and/or giving Johnson props for his dominate showing.
Here is a highlight package, though it contains more of our beloved former Piston Brandon Jennings than it does Johnson beasting.
And while little video exists, there is some awesome photography of young Stanley and that almost makes the whole thing worth it anyway. Check out the photos courtesy of the good people at @PalaceofPistons who got that engagement rate up with this gem.
