Korver Helps McCants Find His Happy Place, Drop 22 On Jazz

Jazz Forward Kyle Korver, presumably startled by the “armadillo” that apparently resides in Rashad McCants’ trousers, puts on an embarassing defensive display last week against the Timberwolves.  McCants had 22, no assist credited to “armadillo”…

This is what happens when Creighton BlueJay legend Kyle “K Squared” Korver drifts inside that colored arc on each half of the court us basketball pundits like to call the “3-Point Line”.  He should know better, so I’m not saying I feel sorry for him, but it’s almost sad really.  Have you ever seen a fish more out of water?  I mean, he’s actually in the paint; AKA, liquid hot magma to Kyle Korver. 

“Ky Jelly” (that’s actually one of his nicknames according to Wikipedia.  Yes, I’m serious…) had an otherwise forgetbable night but for this gem of a moment:  5 points, 3 boards, 1 block (really?), 1 turnover and 1 personal foul in 18 minutes.  Needless to say, Korver didn’t pick up that personal on this play, not unless they’re calling technicals now for particularly ridiculous displays of inappropriate body language and emotion of course, but then this is the NBA.  Right, Korver?

    OMG! That is one of the funniest and most pathetic sports pics I’ve ever seen. The fear displayed by Korver’s face and body is inexplicable, given how long he has been playing basketball. Its as if he never played defense before. I realize he’s not used to playing in the paint, but come on—people don’t shoot outside jumpers on the run? Perhaps that age-old myth about men of a certain hue, or lack there of, being afraid of the natural prowess of “armidillos” is true afterall. Or, more likely, Korver was instantaneously transported to the days when he used to pull his bed sheets up to his nose to fend off the monster under his bed by the horrifying thought of Creighton meeting UNC in the tournament. Yeah, that’s probably it. Poor baby.
