Stop doing what you doing and watch this hilarious clip from the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. LeBron and Jimmy rap us through the wonderful game we have all played at the office, in every office, ever…………….Wastepaper Basketball.
Ball so hard my shoe explodes….is that a thing?
Whilst defending against Rodney Stuckey in the Spurs 120-110 win over the Pistons, things got real; real quick, with Manu Ginobili’s shoes giving way and his foot bursting straight through them.
Ankle breakers are normally the standard perimeter shake up move, is this the next step? “Dude crossed me up so bad, my foot exploded out of my shoe”…….probably not, but this is still hilarious.
Yeah, so Gerald Green is super good at dunking. Check out this dunk clinic he put on against the Utah Jazz today.
After Patty Mills starred for the Spurs with a 25 point, 5 assist and 5 rebound game against the Los Angeles Clippers last night, Tom and Benyam caught up with both him and fellow Aussie Aron Baynes to chat about the Spurs season and playing for Australia in the upcoming Basketball World Cup.
Check it out:
The story we’re being told is that after an injury sustained in a pickup game of basketball with other mascots, formerly terrifying mascot of the New Orleans Pelicans, Pierre the Pelican underwent reconstructive surgery to repair his ‘broken beak.’
I’m not buying this story for a second. Maybe this is a whole new Pierre, maybe the old Pierre is being held captive somewhere, maybe he is on the run somewhere in New Orleans.
Maybe he was just a misunderstood Pelican in this crazy mascot world…..we barely gave him a chance and now he is gone. Either way the old horror movie character Pierre is gone before we even got to fully fear his reign of horror.
From us at Believe the Hype, you will be missed Pierre, so long and farewell.
Here is the saddening timeline of Pierre the Pelican.
….and the hardest one to look at yet, the ghost of the mascot once feared by children and NBA fans around the world, now a somewhat friendly, loveable and comical mascot……who instills zero fear. (which is probably for the best)
This storyline has been a great laugh provided by the Pelicans PR team, well played by everyone involved.
