Judging By This Powerful Windmill Dunk, It Looks Like LaMelo Ball Has Added A Few Inches To His Vertical


Three months ago, I blogged about 15-year-old LaMelo Ball trying and failing spectacularly at an open court dunk in an AAU game. Joke’s on the kid who committed to play at UCLA at 13 years old, amiright?! WHAT A LOSER! Just as a refresher, here’s the muffed dunk.

Well, a lot has happened in the three months since this happened. LaMelo turned 16, became the first high school basketball player to have his own sneaker, and was pulled out of high school by his father to pursue “home schooling.”

The youngest Ball brother stopped by a gym in California to play pickup and has evidently added a few inches to his vertical. He hammered down a windmill dunk and a flurry of less impressive dunks in a game that had less defense than the 2017 NBA All-Star game.

I shouldn’t have been so hard on the young whipper snapper. He’s achieved more in 15 years than I have in double that.

Cool bro, nice dunk. Dick.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
