No, no he isn’t. But this move, along with a pretty impressive Olympic performance with Brazil, should land free agent Leandro Barbosa a decent contract. Somewhere.

Shook Ankles: Ben Gordon Makes Barbosa Dizzy

March 26, 2011 1 comment

If you’ve ever played basketball in your life then you’re well aware that crossovers are as ingrained in the game as the hardworking defenders who subsequently embarrass themselves trying to stop them. But to be fair to all those who’ve taken a spill trying to stay in front of that tricky pill, these guys are only doing so because they’re trying. They’re trying to move as quick backwards as their man is moving forwards. They’re trying to read their opponent’s mind and guess which way they’re headed, which direction they want to go. This clip does not fall under the same category. Leandro Barbosa puts forth about the same effort as a hungover clown hired to entertain a little girl’s birthday party. Ben Gordon’s move is a gross one, don’t get me wrong, but come on Leandro! At the very least take a little tumble. That way you’ll at least let the people who love you know you’re trying.

Shook Ankles: Battle Of The Home Wrecker

Not to gush too much on some “Basketball Wives” level off the court drama, but in the past 12 months, these two have made, and subsequently slept in, their proverbial beds. Parker was caught sending sexy text messages and Barbosa (allegedly) impregnated Steve Nash’s wife. So for those keeping score at home in the battle of NBA scumbags, Tony Parker is a single Frenchman with an extremely hot ex-wife. He lives in San Antonio.

Formerly known as a fan favorite, blazing up and down the court faster than almost everybody in the league, Barbosa is now known as a run of the mill backup point guard in Toronto.

The score was nil-nil draw until I saw this clip. Parker by a nose.
