Throughout the season, I notice many players that simply make me laugh when they are on the court.
No matter how serious and competitive they try to play, I just cannot help but crack up at their stature and the way they play the game.
This slide show is a list of the top three goofiest players left in the NBA playoffs, and why I think they deserve to be on this list!
The Birdman. Where do I start with this dude?
His flamboyant mo-hawk, or his little sock-it-to-me dance he does after he does a slam dunk? Or maybe his soul patch under his lower lip?
Birdman is a player that surely stands out on the court when a fan watches the game. He has the amazing ability to block shots and gives a tremendous amount of energy to his entire team when he steps foot on the floor.
Anderson is one silly-looking dude—but hey, that is his style!
The Polish Hammer. Oh man—have you ever seen this man play? I went to a Magic game once and saw Gortat (7'0") get stuffed going up for an easy lay up by the Sixers' slim Lou Williams (6'2").
Gortat was one of the best and dominant players in Poland, but has really been just a goofy and funny player to watch in the NBA thus far. He makes me laugh every time he steps foot on the court.
Maybe it is because of his funny-looking nose, or his overall goofy play of the game.
Captain Ginger. Why is Scalabrine crowned at number one? Maybe it is because he is the only redhead in the entire NBA.
Furthermore, it could be because he looks like the most overweight and nonathletic player to have ever played the game.
The best reason is because he has to wear a thick headband around his head because of a silly concussion he got earlier this year.
Regardless of how extremely goofy the Irish Thunder looks, he is one of those players that can hit the trey ball on any possession. Cheers to you Scalabrine, on being the number-one goofiest player in the NBA!
