Max Strus has been very surprising to some during his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The forward has posted a bunch of impressive shots, including some resounding dunks that have gotten the crowd on its feet.
Evan Dammarell was speaking with fellow Cavaliers player Georges Niang, who admitted that Strus’ dunking skills are a bit surprising.
“He just doesn’t look like a guy who would be jumping high in the air,” Niang said.
“On first glance, no!”

Strus is averaging 14.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4 assists per game so far this season.
Both players and fans have been elated to see him on the team, as he has added a layer of offensive output and has created some flashy plays too.
There have been a few special dunks from Strus so far this season, even though he doesn’t look like the sort of player who would regularly perform them.
He appears like someone who will stick to shooting from the perimeter or inside the paint.
Instead, Strus keeps opponents on their toes by going right to the basket and getting air over them.
This shows that Strus is the sort of versatile athlete who is going to do whatever it takes to help his team win, which is exactly what the Cavaliers need.
Strus has been having a great season so far but the Cavaliers are having a few problems.
They are the eighth-best team in the East and recently suffered a very tough loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
But they bounced back from that defeat with a win against the Detroit Pistons when Strus scored 22 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists.
