Zach LaVine might be best known for his outstanding dunking ability. Or maybe his place among a trio of young Minnesota Timberwolves hoping to build a power in Minneapolis. But after tearing an ACL in February, Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns and company fell short of the playoff birth many people hoped for.
The next season will be a critical one, as the Wolves hope to continue to build on their young core and fight for relevance in the Western Conference. The flashes are there, with Wiggins’ scoring ability, Towns affecting everything in his path, and LaVine’s extreme athleticism. But Tom Thibodeau still has to take them to the next level and make use of all that potential.
LaVine took a break from rehabbing to attend the Destiny 2 gameplay premiere event and chat with Dime about a wide variety of subjects, including his long road back to dunking form, his hopes for next season, and some of his favorite video games. We even got to ask the former UCLA Bruin about LaVar and Lonzo Ball.
