Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague posted 12 points and 12 assists in a 112-95 victory over the Detroit Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Saturday night, but not even that double-double was enough to earn him a spot on the team bus after the game.
The bus left him at the arena. Just completely forgot about him.
As a result, Teague was left looking for a way to get back to the squad—with a (perhaps Little Caesars) pizza in his hand.
If the 27-year-old had been planning on sharing with his teammates, he probably wasn't in the mood after he got left behind. That's their loss.
It does appear Teague's sister picked him up from the arena, so at least he wasn't stranded all night.
Update from Wednesday, April 6
The sad picture of Teague holding a pizza box in Detroit led to some fun while the Hawks player signed autographs for fans:
