Fans of the Los Angeles Lakers have been able to get a good look at all of the team’s young players this season, and one who is beginning to stand out is first-round pick Larry Nance Jr.
Nance is an outstanding athlete and he showed that off in the team’s preseason game against the Golden State Warriors. Nance caught the ball on the wing and drove right by James Michael McAdoo before rising up and slamming home a monstrous dunk over center Festus Ezili.
The dunk itself got a massive reaction from the crowd, as well as on social media with all of the Lakers fans watching reacting tremendously. For his part, Nance just jogged back down the court and gave a little bit of a shrug.
Since he is the second of the first round picks by the Lakers, Nance hasn’t gotten quite as much attention, but with highlights like these, it won’t be long before he is on everyone’s radar.
