We already knew J.J. Watt can jump, like really, really high, but now we find out the Texans defensive end can get down… well, sort of. After the Rockets went up 2-0 in their NBA Playoff series with the Dallas Mavericks, Watt did an impromptu victory dance with a fellow fan.

Clearly, Watt is from the shake it like you just don’t care school of dance — as evidenced by his shaking his Texas-sized backside with reckless abandon. Before the game, Watt also entertained the sold-out arena by surprising the 12-year-old national anthem singer, Nicholas Connor.


Watt has gone out of his way to show his support for the Houston hoops club, and earlier in the month was visibly in attendance at his alma mater’s battle with Duke in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game.

With Watt’s clear affection for roundball, it’s not hard to imagine the six-foot-five coming off the bench in the NBA as a space eater with serious hops.
