Larry Nance, Jr. is so excited about the Lakers’ schedule he lost the ability to count

He’s also ready to dunk on some fools.

NBA: Sacramento Kings at Los Angeles Lakers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers don’t appear like they’ll be very good this season (and their schedule is equally brutal), but there are still plenty of things to be excited about in 2016-17.

For one, Larry Nance, Jr. is still on the Lakers. More importantly, the high-flying forward is ready to do a few more poster photo shoots this year, as he made clear to one of his Twitter followers who asked if he was going to dunk on anyone this year:

We’ll go ahead and take that as a “yes, I am more than ready to dunk on some people foolish enough to get in my way this year.” That prospect has Nance, Jr. jazzed up enough that he forgot which numbers come between one and ten when another Twitter follower asked him how excited he was on that scale for the team’s season:

We’ll forgive the math error, because we’d be that excited too if we could do this on a regular basis:

Coincidentally, “99999999999999999999999999999999“ is also the score on a scale of one to ten that dunk would earn if in game dunks were judged like dunk contest ones.
