Zach LaVine is already in dunk contest form
In his first follow offseason being completely healthy, Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine has been shown that he has fully regained the same athleticism that he had prior to suffering a torn ACL over a year ago.
LaVine put that on display his impressive physical explosiveness during a recent workout as threw down a pair of highlight-worthy dunks.
There is no question that LaVine is back to where he was at physically, as he will have a chance to start the 2018-19 season out the gate as one of the leading offensive factors for the Bulls. He will have had a full offseason under his belt to prepare to take advantage of the situation in front of him to solidify himself as one of the young backcourt talents in the league.
Moreover, to live up to the expectations that a four-year, $78 contract brings.
In his first campaign with the Bulls, he had put on display much reason for optimism behind his play on the court in the 24 games that he was able to participate in by averaging 16.7 points with 3.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. This included scoring in double figures 19 times with 11 contests with at least 20-points while reaching more than 10 points in 10 straight games.
There were some bumps along the way with his efficiency as a scorer, but that has come to be expected given that he was shaking the rust off from missing a lengthy time on the court.
Nonetheless, this recent video is quite encouraging for the Bulls for what may be ahead for LaVine next season where he could make several of these types of plays look routine. There is a reason why he is a former two-time Slam Dunk champion, which he may put on display on a nightly basis for Chicago this upcoming season.
