When it comes to Zach LaVine, Red Bull’s signature advertising slogan likely fell upon deaf ears. The former UCLA guard already has wings, as evidenced in his very vertically oriented NBA pre-draft mix tape.

The high-flyer will be taking his aerial show to the next level after entertaining Pauley Pavilion crowds this past season with gravity-defying tomahawk dunks.
ROCKETS FOR LEGS
Just how high can LaVine fly? Well, he set a Los Angeles Lakers’ draft workout record with a 46-inch vertical leap. The visually confounding images of his leaps almost look photoshopped, but they’re the real deal and they have scouts salivating.
Consider this: LaVine can jump high enough to clear a Lamborghini Aventador without bending his legs. Soon enough he’ll be able to afford to ride in his own Lamborghini with bent legs.
