It's exactly 97 days before the start of the 2015-2016 NBA season, and boy are we thirsting for some rim-rattling dunks, sweet shooting streaks, and heart-stopping buzzer-beaters.
The San Antonio Spurs, led by assistant coach Becky Hammon, are named champions once again—albeit in the recent Las Vegas Summer League—and that's the closest we've gotten to a real NBA game involving actual NBA players, since the Golden State Warriors' historic championship triumph over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Apparently, BdotAdot5, whose real name is Brandon Armstrong, is not just a master basketball impressionist; he is also legit baller, having formerly playing for the D-League's Reno Bighorns, before taking his talents to social media.
Check out his other impersonations, which not only make up a player's signature moves but also their in-game tendencies. Try not to end up in stitches.

No actual point to this video but it was inspired by @swaggyp1 tho. But if you're a NBA fan then you'd know where this is from!Posted by BdotAdot5 on Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Aside from his killer impersonations, Brandon also boasts of a bevy of side-splitting basketball-themed content on his social media channels (Facebook, YouTube, Vine, etc). Seriously, you need to follow this guy.
