And somewhere in the shadows, a young and skinny Nicolas Batum was practicing his nut punches while short-haired Joakim Noah was working on his dance moves. Or at least that’s what I assume it’s happening, since it appears every French basketball player ever has known each other since bowlcuts were cool.

Tony Parker, by the way? Baking some baguettes, uh-huh-huh.

  1. wow what a find

  2. Like everything in France this shoot also ended with Drake throwing bottles at them

  3. boris diaw with a between the legs dunk?! wtf…

    • Diaw was a shooting guard when he began his career in France, and he won a couple of dunk contests when he was young.

      Also, Trey, you can safely assume that most French basketball players go back a long time ago. It’s usually the case.

  4. Incredible. Aside from the booger flick (obviously), the coolest moments:

    Fournier’s runner that turns into a jumper (:42)

    Diaw losing the handle (:45)

    Transition from headcam crossover to regular angle blow-by (:53)

    Fournier’s missed j (1:00)
