Ever wonder what it’s like to float in mid-air? Defy the laws of gravity for half a second, only you v. the rim, w/ childlike imagination at your mind’s disposal? – for LA’s Larry Nance Jr., it’s a nightly ritual; a high-jumping forward drafted outta Wyoming, Nance Jr’s most redeemable skills are his work ethic, endless motor & game-changing flushes; a true ‘multiple effort’ guy who rarely takes plays off, you can count on LDN to show up; a scrapper/high-flyer his first couple years, Nance Jr. won’t be an UnderDOG for long – if he adds consistent range (funky looking release is impossible to get green on NBA 2K) to complement his athleticism, he’ll be hard to stop as a PnR finisher (whether it’s an OOP or J, Nance Jr. would be circled on the scouting report); stupid bounce: specializes in ‘climb the ladder’ jams: a one-handed, Space Jam-esque tomahawk; diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease while in HS – has battled to overcome it while pursuing his lifelong dream; the first of LA’s young core to have a defined role, Luke Walton is able to play Nance Jr. in almost any situation
