Later, he played college basketball for the UCLA Bruins. After one season at UCLA, he got into the NBA after being identified as one of the top players in the Pac-12 Conference.

During his youth (meaning around the age of five) LaVine became interested in basketball after watching NBA star Michael Jordan in Space Jam. He later became a huge fan of Kobe Bryant (now deceased), and modeled his game after his childhood idols.

One of the things that draw fans to Zach is his body. He’s tall, lean, and muscular. In fact, he’s physique is so impressive that LaVine himself has an entire page on his website dedicated to his training program.
And it is fair to say that LaVine’s body didn’t happen by accident. He puts a lot of time, effort, and energy into what you see. Part of it is a function of regular sports training and part of it is due to a disciplined workout routine.
