Lakers Highlights: Larry Nance, Jr. throws down alley-oop

Big dunk from the bouncy rookie.

The Los Angeles Lakers don't have a bunch of standout athleticism on their roster, but Larry Nance, Jr. is an exception to that rule. The springy rookie has leaped right into fans' hearts, becoming a favorite of followers of the purple and gold due to his hustle and boundless jumping ability.

Should Nance, Jr. continue developing at his current pace, he promises to stick on the Lakers' roster to finish lobs like this for years to come.

Nance, Jr. needs to be used more in pick-and-rolls to get him going downhill towards the rim with greater frequency, but it's still good to see glimpses of it every now and then.
