Throw in the NBA legend’s unique sense of humor, and suddenly what could have been a disaster of epic proportions turns into a bit of can’t miss comedy. Remember this? How about this? And the tumbles haven’t stopped now that he’s an analyst for TNT. The latest (and greatest) wipeout came Thursday night during halftime of the Clippers’ game against the Oklahoma City Thunder..
It might be inspiring to come from difficult circumstances, work hard, and become a professional athlete, but that would be true if someone worked hard and became a doctor, lawyer, social worker, teacher, etc. Professional athletes aren’t intrinsically heroic, because here’s nothing inherently brave about being a celebrity.
