The Los Angeles Lakers have turn out to be a working joke in the NBA this season as they as soon as once more flounder on the backside of the Western Convention.
They could have taken the entire "working" and "joke" bit somewhat too actually although, botching what ought to have been a simple quick break alternative towards the Denver Nuggets. Corey Brewer determined to attempt his hand at recreating the form of move the Showtime Lakers could be happy with.
After the hilarious end result, it could be the final time he ever gathers the braveness to attempt one thing greater than a simple chest or bounce move once more.
This is the play, through YouTube:
You'll have observed a thundering, deep voice calling the sport in the course of the video. Sure, including insult to harm to Brewer is the truth that Shaquille O'Neal was not solely in the sector, however a part of the commentary crew working the sport.
There's completely no method this poor of a play does not make the "Shaqtin' a Idiot" reduce, with Huge Diesel having an up-shut look because the catastrophe unfolded.
"You already know what that is gonna' be on Thursday," Shaq mentioned following Brewer's errant behind-the-again move, referencing he was Shaqtin' sure. "Foolish play, foolish play by the veteran Corey. He ought to have simply gave that to him."
Simply someday after an undefended D'Angelo Russell carelessly kicked a ball out of bounds, Brewer took a crack at besting him. It is onerous to choose which turnover was worse, although stumbling and bumbling out of bounds like D'Angelo did is hard to beat.
All Brewer needed to do was full a really simple move to Jordan Clarkson and the Lakers would've scored a simple two factors. As an alternative, a cameraman was the recipient, and the play may stand as one of many worst this yr for the Lakers.
This standalone sequence may stand as a terrific analogy of how poorly the Lakers performed in Denver Monday night time. They discovered themselves down by as many as 32 factors, wanting misplaced as they collected their 47th lack of the season.
Brewer was a commerce deadline acquisition, introduced on board as a part of the bundle the Houston Rockets despatched to the Lakers in alternate for Lou Williams. He is a veteran swingman, however clearly not a veteran behind-the-again passer.
In a season stuffed with horrible basketball, this stands as one of many worst shows of hoops from the Lakers. Maybe it was all only a plot to pay tribute to the truth that Shaq was in the constructing. Properly performed in that case, Brewer. Nailed it.
