We've all been taking in some pretty spectacular performances from pro-ams and pickup games this summer. Kevin Durant's 66 at Rucker is the highlight, but there's Dwight Howard's coast-to-coast dunk, John Wall's multiple standout games, Brandon Jennings humiliating opponents and more.
But not everything at these events has been all good. In fact, as Inside Hoops called it, this might be the worst shooting performance ever. And I'm having a hard time disagreeing.
Now obviously this wasn't an NBA player but instead some regular dude trying to win a shooting contest. I feel bad piling on, but my tally has him going 0-8 from something like one foot away. Not excellent. It's the anti-Durant video. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Well, we now have KD's Rucker video's opposite.
It's impressive in a "Wow that was an incredible car crash" way. It makes you laugh, it makes you feel bad for laughing and then it makes you laugh some more. It looks like the guy was a good sport about it though. Which is good, because now my laughing is a little more guilt-free.
