If you take a look at your phone, you’ll see that the date reads March 10th, 2020. Some of you are probably wondering why this is significant. Well, today marks the 25th birthday of Bulls star Zach LaVine. In light of LaVine’s birthday, the official ESPN twitter account decided to highlight LaVine and his birthday by showcasing how good the 25 year-old was at dunking in what seemed to be a harmless tweet.
Even though the post was indeed thoughtful, Zach LaVine didn’t seem to appreciate the post.
This isn’t a new thing for the Bulls star
LaVine has been dealing with this his whole entire career. This is the price you pay when you are considered to be one of the best dunkers in the entire world. As cool of a title as that is, the two-time Slam Dunk Contest champion wants others to recognize that his game goes beyond just the flashy dunks. LaVine is currently averaging 25.5 points per game which falls for 14th best in the entire NBA.
Zach LaVine is more than a dunker — he’s a professional scorer.
