Back in June of 2012, during a Team USA practice in Vegas, Blake Griffin threw down a couple of just plain nasty dunks that had a bunch of young ballers going crazy. There was one specific animated baller who got the most camera time because of his reactions and hilariously saying “he didn’t even stretch dooooeeeee.” That baller was a 16 year old D’Angelo Russell who will now be playing home games in the same arena as Blake Griffin.
If you look at the other kids in the background closely you might be able to spot another Laker (if you can’t figure it out then just read the title of the post) as well as Devin Booker and Tyler Ennis.
Shout out to Dan Carson of B/R for bringing up the memory.
