Don’t try this at home, kids.
Toward the end of the fourth quarter of the contest between the Chicago Bulls and Sacramento Kings on Monday night, Kings forward Derrick Williams intercepted a pass and began to drive the ball down the court. Sacramento was winning 95-67 at the time and Williams decided he would try to have some fun. With no one else in sight, the 22-year-old lobbed the ball off the backboard before attempting to catch it and jam it home for two points. Instead, however, Williams failed – in epic fashion.
In fact, the missed-dunk was so poor that his mother had to ask him what he was thinking.
Despite the embarrassing attempt, the Kings defeated the Bulls 99-70. Williams finished with 5 points and 9 rebounds off the bench.
