Los Angeles Lakers rookie Larry Nance Jr. had about as bad a start to an NBA career was one could possibly concoct.

Soon after being selected with the 27th overall pick of the 2015 NBA Draft, a Tweet of his from 2012 about one particularly rich and demanding teammate came to light.

But, thanks in part to the understanding of Kobe Bryant, things are looking up for the son of three-time All-Star Larry Nance.

Also, thanks to the hops and size he got from his dad.

Junior put those genes on display this weekend during a preseason matchup with the Golden State Warriors, absolutely posterizing center Festus Ezeli on his way to a violent cram for two points.

The Michael Jordan shrug is a bit much, but it won't be if he keeps pulling of plays like this.
