Mo Bamba, Deandre Ayton’s hilarious Magic-Suns rookie dance shoot
It’s really too bad that no rookies from the 2018 draft class have any personality.
Mo Bamba and Deandre Ayton got together for a hilarious dance session (and some singing) to the tune of “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen.
They might look ridiculous in this, but this song is an absolute banger. It’s impossible to hear this jam and not start tapping your feet, at the very least.
Bamba kicks it up a notch with the props. His inflatable guitar and comically oversized sunglasses are straight out of some kid’s bar mitzvah. Bamba sounds like he’s a little shaky on the lyrics, but he’s giving it his best shot.
Ayton doesn’t need any props, but he knows how to work the room anyway. He’s showing the laser focus that he’ll need when he steps on the court.
And this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a rookie bust a move. Earlier this summer, Marvin Bagley III tried to start the #SummertimeChallenge and showed off some pretty decent dance moves.
This rookie class is already showing their spunk, and it looks like the league is receiving a new crop of exciting young players. Players like Bamba, Ayton and Bagley will need to prove themselves on the court, but they are all proving to be hysterical personalities off the court.
With the season fast approaching, the fun will turn serious sooner rather than later. Bamba and Ayton are bringing in sky-high expectations, and many expect them to live up to the hype.
