Timberwolves rookie Zach LaVine stars at Seattle Pro-Am with series of seriously sick dunks (Video)

Hey, did you forget over the weekend that Minnesota Timberwolves first-rounder Zach LaVine has crazy bounce and can perform a variety of very cool dunks? Well, I have good news for you and your addled memory.

The former UCLA guard turned up at the Seattle Basketball Pro-Am League run by Jamal Crawford to put on a show for his hometown crowd (LaVine grew up in nearby Renton, Wash.) and offer yet another in what has become a pretty regular series of reminders that he's not especially encumbered by gravity.

Here's a quick smash-and-grab cut of some crowd-pleasing throwdowns:

... and here's a longer, more luxurious compilation, featuring multiple replays and angles:

LaVine used a pretty similar set to win the 2013 Ballislife All-American Dunk Contest. Here's hoping that, if he gets the chance to compete in the pro version at 2015 All-Star Weekend in New York, he'll be able to bring something even more ridiculous to the table.
