Zach LaVine, Andrew Wiggins engage in spectacular dunk-off
Aug 4, 2014 at 9:27a ET
Zach LaVine caught the attention of many NBA teams prior to the 2014 draft due to his athleticism, posting a 46-inch vertical in a workout with the Los Angeles Lakers.
He then went viral after videos of his insane dunks surfaced on the Internet. LaVine threw down a behind-the-back slam during the same workout with the Lakers, then showed off some monster dunks only a month after the Minnesota Timberwolves selected him with the No. 13 pick.
Fellow rookie and Wolves teammate Glenn Robinson III is well aware of LaVine's freakish athleticism, so Robinson decided to challenge LaVine to an impromptu dunk contest at the NBA rookie photo shoot in New York City.
LaVine responded in a big way with a huge dunk of his own.
Then LaVine challenged Cleveland Cavaliers No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins, who didn't disappoint either. Wiggins threw down a smooth behind-the-back slam, making it look almost effortless.
Wiggins could be joining Robinson and LaVine in Minnesota soon, as Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said Saturday that Kevin Love will "likely" be dealt to the Cavaliers by the end of August.
If the Cavs land Love, they would likely have to give up Wiggins in the deal, who can be traded on Aug. 23. Could you imagine Robinson, LaVine and Wiggins having dunk-offs in practice every day?
