If you’ve been following TBJ for the past couple of years, you know all about Box Out Kid, the little guy who always shows up at All-Star Games and gets in Skeets’ way. This kid is our once a year nemesis, bringing us both laughs and frustration when we run in to him at Media Day.

So imagine our amazement when we saw him directly behind David Stern as he presented the Miami Heat with the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

If you missed him, here he is.

And he was there all night. As you can see above, he even weaseled his way in to the Heat’s championship photo, ensuring his place in Heat history for the rest of time.

Earlier, he just chilled by LeBron James, basically following him around as he accepted the Finals MVP trophy.

And now that you know what he was wearing — a Nike LeBron shirt and the LeBron 9 “Galaxy” shoes — it’s easy to pick him out touching the Heat’s championship trophy.

In a week that has seen Kevin Durant get sued for a nickname popularized by TBJ, this was an even more amazing occurrence. How on Earth did this kid end up on stage with the Heat? Did he just sneak on? Did his dad pull some strings to let him get his party on? The world may never know, but it’s still hilarious.

You did it, Box Out Kid. On top of the world.

  1. hahahahaha this is so crazy :p, I wonder who’s kid he is

    • If you follow the facebook link above, his sister posts a link to his FB account. No idea what his relation to the Heat is, but I’d guess, like other commenters, that he is related to Arison. Anyone know Mickey’s sister’s kids names? I’d guess it would be a CLOSE relative considering all the crap this kid shows up in.

    • I know this kid. He is my best friend’s younger brother. His name is Benny Taubenfeld. He is from Puerto Rico.

  2. Someone needs to put this kid in other championship photos heck even throw him into historical moments and stuff it’d be pretty epic

  3. Stuart Scott: …here to present the Larry “O’Bri-fen” trophy…

    How can a sports analyst (let me rephrase that… A troll analyst) who’s been covering the NBA for years possibly get that one wrong?

  4. And who is this kid how does he get into all these pics is he like sterns grand nephew

  5. TBJ has a super villian. You can’t make this stuff up.

  6. Box out kid definitely getting that pooosay now!

  7. You sure he’s not Spoelstra’s older brother?

  8. Box Out Kid is World Wide Wes’ protege. It’s obvious.

  9. Poor Skeets. He was trying so hard to get onto that stage with the Heat.

  10. I am not related to any of the arison family or the any of the heat family i got in by myself

  11. Wait, Box Out Kid is a Heat fan? I can only assume that he’ll weasel his way in to Spoelstra’s rotation next season, and thus we’ll have a ‘Big Four’.to contend with.

  12. There you go fellas, use with care! http://cl.ly/2f3Q3t1W3S3j253s0Q20

    – “Hiding in the NBA press conference in the NBA all star weekend”

  15. One of the funniest cousins i have. He is inxredibly awesome and knows where to be and what to do all the time. The box out kid will forever be remembered. And no he has no relation to the arison family

  16. I was this kid’s counselor at camp. He had floor seats to begin with because he is mad loaded and probably just told security and staff to fuck off and pushed his way on to the stage. Trust me, there is absolutely no stopping this kid.

  17. If he isn’t related to anyone in the Heat organization in any way… The balls on this kid… Colour me impressed. I wonder if anyone else could scrounge their way into a championship photo like that? Maybe Jimmy Goldstein?

  18. Surprised no-one’s photoshopped him onto the moon landings or on the titanic etc etc
