Will Larry Nance JR Enter the 2016 NBA Slam Dunk Contest in Toronto?
Last year Zach Lavine stole the show in New York and took home the 2015 Slam Dunk Trophy. This year Zach Lavine will be defending his title at NBA All Star Weekend Toronto in February. Some new guys in the league are probably gunning for that crown. One of the early guys I think will be a great match up is former NBA Legend Larry Nance son Larry Nance Jr. This guy can get up.
Larry Nance Jr. is now a rookie and he's creating plenty of electricity on his own playing for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Nance Jr. recently 'posterized' the Golden State Warriors' big man, Festus Ezeli, in a way that surely did his dad proud. He took a feed, dribbled to his right, and then exploded through the lane, slamming home a one-fisted jam that exploded through the hoop. The crowd went crazy and Nance simply shrugged off the adulation humbly as if to acknowledge the fact that yes, 'like father, like son.'
