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.

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.
