Hannibal Buress is one of the funniest comedians on earth. Vince Staples may be the funniest person in music. Both are huge basketball fans. There really should be a half-hour program that airs once a week where the two of them just talk about hoops, but since we don’t have that, this three-minute video from The Ringer will have to do.
The pair discussed tough guys in the NBA. No amount of writing that anyone can do would do this video justice, so please, set aside a few minutes and watch the entire thing.
The highlight of this video is easily when DeMar DeRozan‘s name comes up and Staples reacts like he knows something about that no one else does about the Raptors guard. Look at his devilish smile as Buress is asking him about DeRozan, and how confident Staples is when he says “I’m just waiting for somebody to try that.” Additionally, the discussion that the two had about Samaki Walker punching Kobe Bryant is fantastic, as is Buress’ theory that a Spurs player can kill someone and the police in San Antonio won’t care.
Staples has already done stuff like this in a video series for GQ – namely, this delightful video where he discussed NBA fashion – but it’s still hilarious whenever he talks about basketball. The same can be said for Buress, who once brilliantly trolled Kevin Durant while he was playing NBA2k. For real, I don’t care what channel gets it, give them a TV show. We all need this.
