Personally, I think The Ninja is my favorite of Patty Mills’ many different towel waves, but I’d accept arguments for just about any of these important techniques. Mostly though, I’m just glad to see all this information in one place so that future bench cheerleaders will have a strong base of towel waving knowledge when they enter the league. It’s important to leave a legacy, so this is just a brilliant idea by Patty Millions. The kids are alright, but they still need to learn.
Tony Parker looks ridiculous in this picture. He’s wearing a giant t-shirt with a kangaroo on it and a sombrero based on the Australian flag, which doesn’t make any sense. He’s making a weird face. It’s all very silly.
But he’s not even close to the most insane looking person in this picture, which is quite amazing. No, that honor goes to Patty Mills, who is wearing a skin-tight basketball unitard made for a woman that is covered in autographs, a curly green wig and is making an even weirder face. Tony Parker looks funny but Patty Mills somehow managed to one-up him in every relevant picture category. This is a legendary performance.
Also, this is pretty much exactly what I’d guess an Australia day celebration to look like. Well done, mates.
Hope you enjoyed your lunch today because it’s gross out time. Nothing as sick as when Wilson Chandler tried to eat David Lee’s elbow, but this story is still pretty disgusting. It’s from last night’s Spurs-Sixers game and it involves Kawhi Leonard’s left knee, a nail and the terrible things that can happen when you combine those two things.
Then there was the peculiar injury that forced Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard to leave the most tense portion of the game with 1:31 remaining. He suffered a gash on his kneecap when he fell to the court and encountered a nail sticking up from the hardwood.
“I just hit the hardwood on one of those nails, really hard,” said Leonard, who made two of the biggest plays of the period for the Spurs. “It busted my knee wide open.
“It kind of felt funny when I tried to explode up the court when we got the ball and I tried to cut to the basket, so I had to come out and see what was wrong before I injured it worse.”
Yeah, that’s gross, especially if you went to see “Freddy Got Fingered” in the theater with a group of your high school friends and can’t help thinking about this scene while imagining that you’d barf if you ever saw Kawhi Leonard’s post-nail knee. No me gusta.
Then again, now that we know Philadelphia’s court has random nails sticking out of it, maybe NBA Cares can do a little something to help out their own players. They’ve got all those hammers lying around, so might as well put them to good use.
OK, so maybe the still shot of this solid Rudy Gay dunk from Friday night isn’t that embarrassing — it’s just a guard getting dunked on by a bigger guy, which is certainly understandable. But if we zoom in, things get worse for poor Manu.
Between the derp face, the hand on the crotch and the deeply bent knees, this is a great under-the-radar getting dunked on moment. Still not as good as the OG, but still a worthy inductee for this hallowed Hall of Fame. He will be presented at the Hall by one of his heroes, Vlade Divac.
