Not sure if what I just watched was real. Did I see a kid make a free throw (a jumping one at that), and then proceed to hit one of the greatest splits of all time? I mean at least in a basketball game. That may very well be the only split to ever make its way onto the basketball court.
I’m sure this will receive its fair share of criticism. You know, the people who will watch this and say, “that boy shouldn’t be playing basketball, he should be enrolled in some ballerina class or some shit.” Say that last quote in the most extreme southern accent as you can – it’s hilarious.
My opinion? Dude, whatever – it’s chill. I think what this kid just did was set a new standard for all athletes. Calling all ball-for-life-ers; high school, collegiate and professional: you’ve got to step your shit up now.
Y’all can’t have little Curtis out here metaphorically dunking on you with his Smooth Criminal moves. Bron-Bron, instead of flopping, you better be hitting cartwheels and handsprings after every exclamation point. Embid, I better see you Electric Sliding all up and down that court after each and every point; then proceed to own social media. D-Rose, do something that won’t get you injured. Porzingus, start working on your moon walk, you big, lanky goon. The evolution of basketball celebrations starts here everyone. You can no longer just play the game.
