According to Chad Ford, Zac LaVine had a 46 inch vert in his workout for the Lakers today, which apparently is also the record for highest jump.
Wow. That is insane. I knew the kid had elite athleticism, but that is 2 inches higher than even Andrew Wiggins, and 10.5 inches higher than dunk guru Blake Griffin.
I am starting to feel better about my blog post where I named LaVine as a dark horse for the Sixers at #10. Yes, his production was sporadic. But he provides good shooting, which we sorely need, and fits the mold of the super athletic team we are trying to build (assuming we land Wiggins or Embiid at 3).
