Sports announcers say the darndest things.

Devin Ebanks of the NBA Developmental League's Texas Legends threw down a nasty, one-handed jam against the Austin Toros, prompting the announcer to scream, "Mom's spaghetti," at the top of his lungs:

If Ebanks, who spent the previous three seasons playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, is looking for a trip back to the NBA, this is a good way to start.

But the real star of this highlight is the announcer, who deserves a hearty kudos for dropping an awesome Eminem reference.

Bellowing "Dad's lasagna" would have just been weird, after all.
