Disappointment of the Week: NBA gesturing

Posted By on Thu, Feb 3, 2011 at 2:28 PM


As you'll notice from this collage of indecency, there's an interesting phenomenon that's sweeping across the NBA and forcing the players who partake in it to open up their checkbooks.

In an effort to remind the viewing public of their gender, NBA players have recently been seen shadowing the genital region after making a shot just to provide a glimpse of the size—albeit exaggerated—of their manhood.

Hawks forward Josh Smith is the latest player to fall victim to this widespread trend as he showed us where the magic happens on Friday night against the Knicks.

After Smith, a career 28.3-percent 3-point shooter, nailed a shot from behind the arc—a rare occurrence indeed—he celebrated as if he'd won Game 7 of the NBA Finals or a Michael Jackson lookalike contest.

Not only did Smith give the fans a friendly reminder of his anatomy, but as he approached the bench during a timeout Smith decided to take his gesturing to the next level—channeling his inner King of Pop.

The NBA handed down a $25,000 fine to Smith on Sunday, hoping to nip this whole "crotch-grabbing" thing in the bud (pun intended).
