Today’s lesson is how to perform an NBA-grade pick and roll, even if you are not an NBA-grade athlete. All it takes is a keen eye and judgement. Once you know how to pick your spot, you can do it with ease.

The seats behind the announcers are usually prime real estate at every sporting event, and the NBA is no exception. In fact, unlike baseball, football, or hockey, the announcers are not in booths but sitting at a table court side with the fans right behind them. If you get seats right behind the announcers you are guaranteed to get on TV when the director cuts to the announce table.

Use that power wisely. Observe this man proudly performing his own version of the pick and roll.

The best part? That guy clearly knew that he was on tv. Oddly, he was proud of it and shared a manly wink with the audience at home. Click on this picture to watch Yahoo’s non-stop winking gif!

Former New York Knicks player Baron Davis was abducted by aliens a few weeks ago. I’ll let him tell it in his own words.

“I was, um, on my way from Vegas here to L.A., I’m a little tired and s— and I see this light and I think it’s a big-a– truck. Then next thing you know, dude, like, I was in this f—— steel thing.”

It didn’t end there. In many abduction stories, there is a period of blackout and often the victim’s next memory would be heading home some hours later. Not so Davis. He recalls meeting “these f—— crazy-looking people” who were “half-human, half, like, f—–, ugly motherf——.”

In fact, Baron has some clear recollections of that evening. “Dude, they were poking me on my nose and s—. They were poking me on my nose and they were, like, looking me in my eyes. They had my hands like, tied up and the next thing you know, I was f—— in Montebello, dude, burning rubber on the way back to L.A. It was like four o’clock in the morning.”

Davis later recanted the story, claiming it was all a joke.

Judging from his outfit, I tend to believe it.
