You know, it’s almost like they made a movie about this….
Regardless, Charlotte Bobcats forward Cody Zeller made sure to reinforce the stereotype during a Wednesday night loss to the Los Angeles Clippers in the most embarrassing of fashions.
With the Bobcats and Clippers tied at 56-56 in the second quarter, Zeller decided he’d run the floor and we all know that when big men run the floor, they’re supposed to be rewarded, right? Following up on that thought, the streaking Zeller was given a perfect pass in stride and all he had to do was slam it home. Even the Clippers defense wasn’t going to impede such a beautiful moment as they too parted the key, leaving Zeller all alone with the rim.
But like a bad prom date, Zeller was stiffed at the rim – completely getting stoned by the basket as he attempted the would-be impressive dunk.
Even more hilarious than Zeller’s failed attempt was the Bobcats bench, who were up standing ready to cheer on the dunk but quickly had to return to their seats.
