Zach LaVine was the guest of honor at a chic party at a chic Chicago hotel ... BUT even a dope party couldn't stop the NBA star from playing because BALL IS LIFE !!
Haute Living and the luxury watch brand HYT launched the party at the Virgin Hotel Manor in Chicago… all to celebrate LaVine adorning the cover of HL mag (and her high school sweetheart, Hunter marit's the day).
The best part ... LaVine left the party around midnight to go to the gym and 500 3-point SHOOT until 1:30 a.m.
Why do you ask? ZL is competing in this 3-point contest this weekend ... and he's trying to be the only person to win contest 3 and dunk.
LaVine won the dunk competition in 2015 and 2016 ... in a crazy and impressive way.
But Zach’s game is more than tough… he killed him with the Bulls this season, averaging 25 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.
If writing the story was not enough motivation, we are told that the CEO of HYT let LaVine borrow a $ 50,000 luxury watch… and told him that if he won on Saturday night, he could keep the shows.
