Jadeveon Clowney

I’m A Basketball Freak Too

Here's Proof ...

Jadeveon Clowney isn’t just a terror on the gridiron – he DOMINATES the hardwood too ... and TMZ Sports has video proof of the guy throwing down a NASTY dunk back in 2012.

Back before Clowney became a household name, the football stud played in a charity basketball game in South Carolina in May '12 ... when he was just 19 years old. 

Ya gotta watch the clip ... Jadeveon threw down a ferocious dunk off a lob -- it's impressive.

We spoke to some of the guys who played in the game -- which benefited the iCHOPE Foundation for underprivileged kids -- who tell us Jadeveon's performance was super impressive and littered with some quality jams. 

FYI -- Jadeveon played a little high school basketball ... and wasn't bad --averaging 9 points and 9 rebounds a game.  He was better at football though.

They should start calling this idiot TO junior. He is already trying to be a media clown before he puts on an NFL uniform. My guess he will be injured most of his short NFL career and fizzle out quickly.

Randy Moss's daughter is better than him. Still, he has a lot to protect. He'd be better served practicing what he's actually good at. Think about your future, not your braggin rights dude.

Jadeveon? Really? Let's just put syllables together and call it a name. Add a few vowels, maybe a consonant or two.
