Watch: Lakers rookie Larry Nance Jr. dunks all over Festus Ezeli

Sunday October 18th, 2015

You might know Larry Nance Jr. best as that one rookie who once tweeted that stuff about Kobe Bryant and had to make nice after the Lakers drafted him. Delete your tweets and clean up those Facebooks before you hit the professional world, kids. But I digress.

Nance and Kobe have made up, but Nance and the rim have apparently not. The first-round pick out of Wyoming announced his arrival in the league during Saturday night’s game against the Warriors (yes, it was a preseason game).

If you've never heard of Larry Nance Jr., it's ok. Festus Ezeli probably hadn’t either. If you don’t know, now you know. 

MAHONEY: Lakers, NBA’s middle class balance winning with draft position

Take a look at Nance’s jam below. Try to keep your jaw closed.

​The Lakers-Warriors game was later canceled due to poor floor conditions, but we all really know why. Especially Festus Ezeli.
