Chicago Bulls star Zach LaVine wants to improve his game for the next season. Among the things he wants to improve is hid mid post and face up game. Basketball legends Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant were two of the best at that part of the game.

“It’s almost like art the way that they operated and how they could manipulate defence. You know, pump-fake, slide-through and a ball-fake. They could take one-two dribbles at that,” the 25-year-old guard said on Ball Don’w Stop podcast.
