Abdul-Malik Abu can jump really high

This is an art film starring Malik Abu, except that it doesn't exist in any museum, which is a bizarre miscalculation on the part of everyone. I'm not trying to get you overly hyped about next season, but then again did you see how far Malik Abu flew off the ground?

I've heard that there's a lot more to basketball than jumping or dunking, which is good since I could do neither, but after watching this it's difficult to imagine basketball any other way.  Malik Abu hits 35,000 feet in this clip, and he has no idea that he is out of his jurisdiction, where rules no longer matter, and has legroom to spare.
