As the NBA season kicked off on Tuesday, the UCLA Bruins posted a video montage to their Twitter page of all of their current NBA alumni throwing down dunks during their time at Pauley Pavilion.

That is, except one.

Lonzo Ball took to his own Twitter to call out his alma mater for forgetting that the 6-foot-6 guard can, in fact, dunk. The Bruins quickly responded with a special highlight reel just for Ball.

Perhaps the silky smooth layup from the original video is more indicative of Ball's game, but the big baller still has some hops.

Ball hopes to create some new highlights on Thursday, when he makes his NBA debut with the Los Angeles Lakersas they take on the LA Clippers.
