Remember when Brendan Haywood was on the Wizards? And then they traded him to the Mavericks and he started playing exactly like the player we all hoped that he would be? That hasn't really been the case as much this year with Tyson Chandler playing in front of him. Now, he's playing in the 2011 NBA Finals, and this happened.â†µ
Normally I root for guys who used to be on the Wizards, and I don't have anything against Haywood per se, but this was one of those stand up and point at the TV laughing kind of moments. For a moment there, it looked like the shot may have been contested and Haywood was actually blocked or something, but upon further review, no, it was just that the guy who is nearly 7 foot tall couldn't get the ball over the rim. Of course, Haywood is playing in the NBA Finals, so it's hard for me to throw stones, but come on, Brendan.
