A new video is making the rounds on You Tube. And elsewhere, probably. It is of the Boston Celtics, apparently at an early October practice, getting their freak on in Halloween masks to the tune of Waka Flocka Flame’s “Hard in the Paint.”
KG, in uniform, channels his inner Michael Jackson, while a bunch of the other big men get all up in yo grill with their own dance moves. You gotta check this out and make it go viral:
Don’t read too much into it like some paranoid rule-maker who thinks the world is about to end. It’s a hilarious video of some guys having fun in the locker room. Where else will you see millionaires doing something like that? Nowhere. No harm, no foul, unless you make some dumb edict like David Stern.
The Celtics are known for cool stuff now. Remember hearing how they watch “Family Guy” before games? Or when Shaq wanted to become Gilbert Arenas? Or the Shaqtue? Or Blackie Bulger? Or Shaquita? It’s some harmless fun in an energetic business, no different than how Shakespeare used clowns to break up the drama. And the Celtics’ version has cool moves to boot.
Can you imagine if Brian Scalabrine was still in Boston and tried dancing like that? Isn’t it hilarious to watch goofy white guys like that act street?
