It’s been a while since we played basketball. Pretending to be Michael Jordan as we soared majestically half an inch above the ground for in the region of half a second. Great hang time.
What we do remember however are those balls. Those massive, heavy rocks of rubber. The kind of thing you wouldn’t want to hit you in the face – or have slammed into your face from about two foot away for some reason.
That’s what happened to poor little 7ft tall Tonye Jekiri of the Miami Hurricanes as for no reason in particular, Montrezl Harrell of the Louisville Cardinals decides to bounce the ball off his face. Cheers pal. Nice one.
