Thanks to Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, nowadays, almost everybody in the NBA is jacking up three-point shots. It is a copycat league as some say, so if it works for someone, then everyone else jumps on board, and the growing influence of analytics on the game has only given more credence to that approach.
So, if hypothetically you could get $800 million if a player hit a three-point shot, you'd be quite confident of getting that money, right? Well, judging by the reactions of some NBA fans, they definitely don't feel all that confident when they saw that the person associated with their birthday month had to take that shot. Some even went as far as to say they had more belief in an 8-year-old!
"I would put more faith in an 8 year old than Ben Simmons"
"this 8 year old better be future curry ian playing 😭"
"March 😂 no pressure"
"Ain’t no way yall just gave me westbrick"
"KYRIE 💪🏼🔥 IM RICH 🤑"
"I got Lebron thanks for the money😂💯"
"jaylen got it"
"I got the dude that doesn’t even go for open layups 😭"
"Jalen Brown let’s get paid!!"
"January and September yall screwed 😭"
"Wow im March thank goodness"
"8 year old woulda been better then Ben Simmons"
"Russel Westbrook God help 🧎♂️"
"8 year old... at least I didn't get Russ or Ben"
"Let’s go Tatum!!!"
"July, so gimme my money"
"Jimmy always getting buckets"
"How I end up with Ben Simmons, come on mannnn!!!! Lol"
"I got october, ik joel got me"
"Tacko Fall 😭"
Ben Simmons and Russell Westbrook were unfortunately trolled yet again, as the 8-year-old was hilariously more trustworthy for some fans. It has gotten so bad for Russ that an NBA writer claimed he might not play again in the league if he leaves the Lakers.
While that would perhaps be a stretch, the list of potential destinations isn't that long. The Mavericks have no interest in acquiring him even as a free agent, and the Timberwolves were also recently ruled out as a landing spot. It has truly been a stunning fall from grace for the former MVP that he has now become a laughing stock among some NBA fans.
