Video: Pulisic opens 2018 with a slam dunk

The Borussia Dortmund youngster showed off his basketball skills as teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cheered him on

U.S. national team star Christian Pulisic started off 2018 with yet another highlight for his fans to enjoy — except this time it was on the basketball court.

The 5-foot-8 midfielder displayed his hooping talents by sharing a video on Instagram of himself throwing down a one-handed dunk following some impressive dribbling skills.

After spending his Christmas break in the United States, Pulisic was back with Borussia Dortmund at the team's training facility when he showed off his hops.

Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can be heard in the background providing some commentary as Pulisic approached the rim.

“The number 22, Christiaaaaan Pulisiiiiiic! Gooooooooooooool!,” the Gabon international yelled out.

Pulisic is clearly a basketball fan, with the Hershey, Pennsylvania, native once calling LeBron James his "biggest inspiration" in a Twitter post.

But who knew he too could throw it down? Even though some may question the height of the basket!
