The Spanish language call of Julius Randle's dunk proves dunks are the universal language

Julius' dunk is awesome in any language.

Julius Randle put on a dunk show in the Los Angeles Lakers' victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, throwing down four times in the win. If that wasn't awesome enough, the Spanish language call of the moment proves that dunks are truly a universal language:

Three things:

1) That announcer calls Julius "Don Julio," which is absolutely the best nickname anyone has thrown out for the young big man.

2) He also described Randle as "El Toro," which is Spanish for "bull," and also a perfect description of Julius' uniquely out of control and bruising drives to the rim.

3) The Lakers picked up a rare victory on Friday night, but if that guy is that consistently fired up for the games of a 7-27 team, I may have to start watching the Lakers on Time Warner Cable Deportes.
