Dunk of the Year?
The Lakers' Larry Nance Jr put himself in the "dunk of the year" conversation last night and judging by the reactions around the league he just might be the leader in the clubhouse right now.
Even Brook Lopez's teammates had a hard time restraining themselves after their 7-foot big man was dwarfed by Nance's Statue of Liberty slam.
The dunk was so vicious that Larry Nance actually felt the need to apologize to Brook shortly after things calmed down in the arena.

Brook Lopez is 7 feet tall, and he was jumping. Look at how high Larry Nance Jr. was. pic.twitter.com/HRt4YRci19— Dan Devine (@YourManDevine) December 15, 2016
