Sea otter dunks to exercise joints at OR zoo

The Los Angeles Lakers may want to recruit Eddie the sea otter, who rarely misses when he dunks.

Eddie resides at the Oregon Zoo in Portland. He is 16 years old and has arthritis in his elbows, so zookeepers taught him to dunk as a way to exercise his joints.

They say it works, and he's feeling better.
