You know how excited the entire team gets when a lineman scores a touchdown in football? Call this the hoops equivalent. After Glen Davis finished a very pedestrian fast break dunk versus the Minnesota Timberwolves last night, the Los Angeles Clippers’ bench exploded in euphoria.
Hilarious – especially coming from the Clippers. Reactions to legitimately highlight-worthy slams from Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan don’t elicit such celebration these days.
Perhaps Big Baby’s teammates were expecting a different result? It wouldn’t have been the first time he missed a slam, after all:
Come to think of it, we would’ve been thrilled that Davis connected, too. No NBA player deserves the humiliation of otherwise.
What do you think?
