JJ Watt Dunks All Over Civilians

A few months removed from offseason sports hernia surgery, a bored JJ Watt understandably wanted to put himself to the test in a competitive environment, putting out this Tweet to the Houston public early on Saturday afternoon.

As expected considering the three-time AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year's Twitter following of more than 2 million people, he had no trouble finding some interested takers.

First, Watt headed to some outdoor courts at Root Memorial Square Park, according to The Houston Chronicle.

"He just walked up with a ball like anyone else," 17-year-old Damon Cormier, Jr. told the newspaper. "We were all like, 'Is that really J.J. Watt?' Then, we just started playing."

Fortunately for the Internet, we were blessed with the videography skills of Cormier Jr. and his friends, which were later put on display on Cormier Jr.'s Twitter account. Watt, unsurprisingly the largest player on the floor by a sizable margin, got to work quickly, as evidenced by this nice one-handed jam:

"There was a little bit of trash talking, but not too much, because he's J.J. Watt," Cormier Jr. told the Houston Chronicle. "Some people were scared to guard him though, because he's so big."

But Watt wasn't done yet, as he proceeded to stop by Houston Fire Station No. 9 later in the afternoon for Round Two.

"One of our guy's girlfriends saw J.J.'s tweet about playing ball and responded to him, telling him that the boys at the 9 are always playing basketball," firefighter Paul Portis told the Houston Chronicle. "He just pulled up and had a basketball with him, and said, 'You guys ready for some hoops?' I think everyone's jaw just dropped."

Once again, Watt's efforts were well-documented, this time by the Houston Chronicle. The 6-foot-5 superstar used his 290-pound frame to absolutely dominate the glass en route to a few buckets, including a two-handed jam at around the 50-second mark of the following clip:

Needless to say, it was a fun day for Watt and those around him, but playtime will soon be over for the defending No. 1 selection in the NFL Network's Top 100 players. Watt will lead a revamped Texans squad, including offseason acquisitions Brock Osweiler, Lamar Miller and Will Fuller, which opens its preseason with an August 14 showdown against the 49ers.
