After a rough 2014-15 season, the young Los Angeles Lakers players are beginning to earn their stripes and are starting to show flashes of brilliance.
It’s only a matter of time before D’Angelo Russell gets his own highlight reel on a nightly basis, and it’s clear that he and Julius Randle are already developing chemistry.
And let’s not forget about Jordan Clarkson, who’s now in his second year in the league. In case you didn’t see him drive the lane and elevate to throw down a sick dunk on Sunday night, please do yourself a favor and watch this clip right now.
Swaggy P nearly died from shock after it happened.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You have to hear what Clarkson had to say about the dunk after the game.
“Kobe tellin’ me I drive like a light-skinned dude, so I dunked like a dark-skinned one!”

The Lakers are fun to watch, that’s for sure.
