Video: Zach LaVine Shows Off His Crazy Athleticism

Zach LaVine has become one of the bigger names in the 2014 NBA Draft, despite only one — somewhat disappointing — year at UCLA. He burst onto the national radar after recording a bonkers vertical in Santa Barbara with P3 Sports Science, and he’s likely to be picked in the middle of the first round. A recent video from PureSweatBasketball shows why.

Not only do we get to see the dunks and the athleticism you’d expect from the 6-6 LaVine and his 46-inch vertical…

but he’s also a little more polished handling the ball than we expected.

Our latest mock draft has LaVine listed as the No. 17 pick going to Boston by way of that lopsided Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett deal from last summer. Draft Express has him going in the same spot as well.

    Not hatin’, but for a guy with no jumper nor any other elite level skills, they are going to waste a first rounder on him? Maybe he develops. Maybe he takes on Gerald Green for most insane in-game dunks, but I’d hope level headas prevail and we see him get picked in the second round…

    Joe Alexander had some crazy hops also…
