WATCH: Lakers’ Alex Caruso with dunk of the year nominee

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James jumped up off the bench wondering what happened. Kevin Durant was at a loss for words and just looking around like someone stole his lunch money.

The reason? Alex Caruso. If you’re wondering about the why and who, we’re here to fill you in. The former G-league star just put his name in the dunk of the year nominee box.

Does science even work this way? Caruso legit just took gravity and made it seem like the modern-day version of the Geocentric model.

When you can make two future Hall of Famers and potentially the two-best players on the planet look dumbfounded, you’ve done something right.

Billy Hoyle would be proud.
