Yesterday we posted a video of Nets' PG Devin Harris getting schooled by a London streetballer. Well, turns out Devin Harris has a great excuse. From the North Jersey Media Group:
“When I first went out there, they told me one of the Special Olympic kids wanted to play me one-on-one,” Harris said. “So I went down there, said OK, shot jump shots or whatever.
“So he hit the first shot, and I was like, ‘OK, he has a little talent.’ Then he just whipped out the other thing - I was kind of confused at the point with all these dribbling moves, and before I knew it he threw it through my legs and laid it up.
“At that point it was time to go. So they had fun with it, they got me pretty good. I didn’t expect it to be that popular, but it is what it is.”
So they tricked Harris into playing this guy by telling him he had an "intellectual disability?" I guess Harris didn't question it when he saw the guy playing basketball in jeans and a v-neck sweater. What an idiot.
