Screenshots from Kai Sotto’s Instagram account

Kai Sotto is working hard to upgrade his basketball skill set while training in the NBA G League.

In an Instagram Story Monday, Sotto attempted to execute a one-handed windmill dunk, which seemed easy with his 7-foot-2 stature.

But the towering Filipino center failed on his first attempt, adding facepalm and laughing emojis on the clip.

For the second time though, the 18-year-old Sotto swiftly jammed the ball into the hoop.

Looks like those glimpse of dunking skills is one of the hidden tricks under Sotto’s sleeves when the NBA G League kicks off next month.

In their recent scrimmages, Sotto has been efficient on the defensive while displaying his passing and dribbling skills despite playing the center position.
