Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball took to instagram late last night to give fans a taste of what he's capable of, both on the court and on the dance floor.
Lonzo, wearing a black Big Baller Brand polo, can be seen throwing a lob to himself off the bounce and finishing with a smooth 360 windmill, which might surprise some fans that didn't know he had bounce like that. However, the most unexpected part of the video comes after the dunk, when Lonzo struts down to the opposite end of the court and breaks out in a celebratory dance.
If #HoodieMelo has become Carmelo Anthony's off-season alter ego, then we're here for what #PoloZo does next.
Check out the footage below.

Earlier in the day, Lonzo had a more formal workout with his Lakers teammates, in which he donned a shirt depicting himself as the NBA logo, as shown below.
In addition to his busy day at the Lakers' training facility, Lonzo also spent some time with James Corden on The Late Late Show where the 19-year old spoke about his Big Baller Brand signature sneakers, his father LaVar's unique training regimes, and practiced autographing some basketballs, which Corden joked will end up on eBay.

Lonzo and the Lakers will open up their NBA preseason schedule a little over 10 days from now when they take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on September 30th. The Lakers will have six preseason games in total, including their preseason finale against the Clippers on October 13th, before the real season gets underway.
The Lakers will open up the 2017 NBA season at the Staples Center in a home game against the Clippers on Thursday, October 19th. Lonzo Ball is currently one of the favorites to take home Rookie of the Year honors at season's end.
