Alex Caruso’s rise in LA may have started with a pile of “Bald Mamba” memes, but his continued increase in popularity is now rooted firmly in his basketball ability.

Caruso, to his credit, gave a fantastic answer when asked about his involvement.

He may have destroyed my hometown team last night, but I wish nothing but the best for this guy. Go get your ring, Alex.
