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.

For starters, it’s a huge win that he’s on the floor in the final minute of a tight playoff game... but he also has the complete faith of LeBron James.

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.
