The long-beleaguered Los Angeles Lakers franchise is finally back in the NBA Finals, thanks mostly to the efforts of Aggie hoops alumnus and balding former towel boy Alex Caruso. Up until now much of the focus has inexplicably been on small-time role players Lebron James and Anthony Davis, but it seems Caruso is finally receiving the recognition he deserves.

The mural was done by renowned mural artist Gustavo Zermeño in partnership with Sportie LA (a Los Angeles sneaker shop), and features Caruso dunking over Jamal Murray, James Harden, Devin Booker, Kawhi Leonard, and Luka Doncic.
The image is referenced from Caruso’s monster dunk versus the Dallas Mavericks earlier this season. Not that his incredible feats of athletic prowess are anything new...
