Two Rival NBA Stars Put Competing Hexes on the Ball Before a Free Throw and It Was Hilarious
Remember last week when a Rwandan soccer league banned witchcraft after a player was accused of (literally) cursing a goalpost so that his team could score — which they later did?
A couple of NBA players may have gotten the same idea.
On Wednesday night, in the fourth quarter of a close game, an Atlanta Hawks player missed a free throw that would have extended his team’s lead. When the ball bounced to the Orlando Magic’s Serge Ibaka, he said something to the ball — perhaps trying to put a hex on it, hoping the player would miss again.
It was entertaining as hell to watch.
My favorite part is Ibaka’s reaction after Howard’s counter-hex, as if he’s pleading to the ref about how unfair that is…
