Lakers' Larry Nance Jr. Sets Up A Nasty Alley-Oop Dunk Off the Backboard

Like father, like son.

Los Angeles Lakers power forward Larry Nance Jr. is a dunking machine. The 6-foot-9, 230-pounder shook the rim multiple times during his rookie year. It didn't matter who was in the lane, Nance Jr. was going to jam on them. Watching action at the Lakers training camp makes us believe not much will change in his second season.

During an intra-squad scrimmage, Nance Jr. got the ball at the top of the key, gave his defender a pump fake, went under the defender, tossed the ball off the backboard and finished  with a nasty alley-oop dunk. The high-flying Nance made the play look easy, but the off-the-backboard move is not as simple as he made it look.


Nance Jr. took the dunk from his dad, who won the NBA's first Slam Dunk Contest in 1984. Larry Sr. definitely passed down his jamming abilities to Larry Jr., who could clearly qualify for the 2017 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
