If you ever need a GIF descriptor for what’s currently the team with the second-worst record in the NBA, barreling down Tank Street in a Tank Tank towards the 2015 NBA draft, we’ve got just the moving image for you.
That’s 76ers guard Tony Wroten, well ahead of the Nets defense on an easy fast-break, going for a wide-open layup, and… nothing. The ball just drops out of his hands inexplicably. It was like Antoine Tyler from The Sixth Man snuck in to make a quick Barclays Center appearance.
To make matters worse, Wroten gathered and just flung the ball back towards the glass, easily blocked by Mirza Teletovic. But the Teletovic block was nullified, incorrectly ruled a goaltend, likely out of confusion.
