Shaqtin A Fool Episode Two, Volume Five (2015-16)
Tragic Bronson Alert, This time with a High Top Fade
It’s that time of the week again, time for the countdown NBA players never want to appear on. Shaqtin a Fool episode two of the 2015-16 season is chock full of laughs. Weekend sports warriors around the globe get to laugh at professional NBA ballers who are better than us but still make fools of themselves. This week, Shaq, Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, and special guest Grant Hill bring you the top five best fails from around the league.
Tragic Bronson Alert on Shaqtin
Fans get ready, there is a Tragic Bronson alert this week. Philadelphia 76ers big man Nerlens Noel is one of the unluckiest NBA players in the league. After battling through injuries to finally get back on the court, it seems Noel has faulty hands too. It’s a shame. Noel’s high-top fade deserves to be on top of the head of a better NBA player. As a big man myself, when I play basketball, I get strange looks when I try to handle the rock like a guard on the perimeter. So I sympathize on a certain level with frontcourt players when they try to create offense for themselves. But if the ball is going end up in the fifth row when you find yourself on a breakaway, pass the ball to someone who can dribble and finish above the rim. Please Nerlens, you could hurt someone.
Wrap it Up Shaq
As a Knicks fan, we have a soft spot, for now, Denver Nuggets’ forward Danilo Gallinari. But, Gallo, please come back to New York to get a proper haircut. Also, Gallo please look out for the fans sitting courtside. You could hurt someone with that bullet pass you tried to make. If we could be serious for a moment. Involuntary traveling disease or ITD is infecting several high-profile players in the NBA. How many more NBA players are going to take nearly ten steps with dribbling? It’s a real problem and we need a cure.
