Larry Nance, Jr. may not end up getting a chance to participate in the NBA’s dunk contest if his injured knee ends up being a nagging issue all season, but he has had a few posters that would seem to warrant an invite at the very least.
He’s pretty proud of his dunking resume as well, judging by his tweet on Wednesday morning:
*Kanye voice* Imma let you finish but.... https://t.co/GtidikoJGw— Larry Nance Jr (@Larrydn22) December 21, 2016
That would seem to imply that Nance thinks he had the best dunk of year, but which one? His gentle caress of David West’s head before sailing by to drop the hammer? Or his complete destruction of Brook Lopez that left people reporting his death? Is this just an excuse to watch those again (Yes)?
Okay it was probably the second one but the first one was pretty great too. If that leaves you chomping at the bit for Nance to participate in the dunk contest, you aren’t alone. So are his fellow NBA players:
@Larrydn22 lol I know! Imma try to find a way to sneak past both of y'all this year.. oh yea you doing dunk contest?— Justin Anderson (@JusAnderson1) December 21, 2016
Will he? Maybe:
If Nance is healthy but the NBA doesn’t put him in the contest, it will be a national travesty. Let’s start a movement to #LetLarryLeap
