With the NBA conference finals now in full swing, the offseason has started for those teams unlucky enough not to be involved. However Portland Trailblazer's star, Nicolas Batum is already getting in some conditioning by playing one-on-one against his dog.

Batum posted the above video to his Instagram account earlier today. The video shows Batum, in flip-flops admittedly, taking on his dog in a spot of one-on-one. We're not sure who actually won the matchup but in the small section we get to see, the dog had some pretty impressive lock-down defense and even got a rebound.

That's more than Roy Hibbert got for most of the playoffs this season.

I'm not suggesting that the dog should be brought in to help the Pacers overcome the Miami Heat but we could definitely be looking at the next 'Airbud' star.
