Zach LaVine’s Trip To China: Great Wall, Great Yao & Great Dunks

Published on July 1st, 2015 by Astramskas, David | 1,805 views

Last month, high flying Zach LaVine got to take a nice long flight to China for an experience of a life time. He got to┬átake a selfie in front of the Great Wall of China, take a pic with the great wall that is Yao Ming, play against fans at the “Shanghai Rucker Park,” help a little kid dunk and of course show off his 2nd to none NBA dunking skills.

After the trip, Zach stopped by the Bill Simmon-less Grantland studio (I  miss Bill!) to talk with the new hosts about his trip, how scared he was flying to China, how scary Kevin Garnett can be and the bright future of the TWolves who recently added another #1 pick to the roster.
