On the court, LaVine is an energetic player, performing highlight-reel plays. He is considered a project. He played only one season for the Bruins, started only one game, and struggled down the stretch.
Off the court, he said, he’s laid-back. During down time, he likes to practice baseball and football and play video games, even though he is admittedly terrible at them.
One of his first real outings in his new city will be going to see the new “Transformers” movie because LaVine loves going to movie theaters. In his own words, he chills there.
So, while he may be in the big time now, he’s still pretty much the same kid who grew up in Seattle.
“I still picture him, third grade in the back yard with his headband on and his wristbands — because he was Michael Jordan — and ‘Space Jam’ played 24/7 from the time he was 3 years old,” his mom said. “Just dragging him out from the back yard to make him eat, literally.
“And he’d just shove it in and get back out there.”
