If you’ve never heard the name Zach LaVine before, you’ll hear it everywhere now thanks to his performance in the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest.
Lavine was born March 10, 1995 in Renton, Washington. He attended Bothell High School in Bothell, Washington playing point guard. As a senior he averaged 28.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.
Due to an ankle injury to starter, Ricky Rubio, LaVine started at point guard for the Timberwolves for a short time before being benched for Mo Williams to take over. During his short playing time, LaVine scored 28 points in a 120-119 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Nov 28, making him the second teenager in the NBA to have at least 25 points and five assists as a reserve.
