The Funny, Stupid Thing of the Night
We know we have a lot of purist, serious hoops fans here at Basketball Insiders, but every once in awhile we have to remember this is a game that is meant to be fun. Check out this funny mix of NBA players just taking some moments to be goofy.
Game-Winners of the Night
Last night featured a couple clutch game-winners for fans to enjoy. First, the Pacers came out victorious despite sitting all five starters last night against the dreadful Bucks thanks to forward Chris Copeland hitting the last-second runner. We feel for Bucks fans who spend their hard-earned money to see their team lose like that against the back-ups. Just sad. Next, Blazers forward Dorell Wright only made one basket all night against the Kings, but he made sure to make it count as he nailed the game-winning three.
Block of the Night
Oh, no you didn’t! Nets rookie forward Mason Plumlee showed no fear going up against HEAT forward LeBron James as he rejected his game-winning dunk attempt to help the Nets win. That takes some big onions to face The King and come out on top.
Swag of the Day
If any of you are wondering how Mason had the confidence to do that against LeBron, look no further than his ride. Very cool Maserati this Plumlee brother is rolling around Brooklyn in for sure.
YouTube of the Night
Meet the next big thing. Literally. High school junior center Tacko Fall from Liberty Christian Prep in Florida is 7’5, 250 pounds with a wing span that is reportedly eight feet. While the Senegal native is the definition of raw with very little basketball experience, there just aren’t a lot of people in the world this big and coordinated enough to play the sport. It will be interesting to see his development and which college will take a flier on this giant.
Dunk of the Night
Because we can never have enough Suns forward Gerald Green highlights in our lives, check out as Pelicans forward Al-Farouq Aminu makes the mistake of giving Green the baseline and Gerald soaring in for the double-clutch slam. Green makes some of the most seemingly impossible dunks look so easy we’re starting to get spoiled.
Kicks of the Day
Even though purple doesn’t match the Blazers’ colors, who is going to tell center Meyers Leonard not to rock these bad boys?
