I once played in a Pro-Am league. My coach hyped our first regular season game up as “the most important game of our lives” but one of the best players on our team couldn’t help it: He started dying laughing. Here he was, an NBA D-League player, and this stupid coach was telling him a summer league Pro-Am game was the most important game of his life. Not laughing yet? Shit, I guess you had to be there.

C.J. Leslie had the senior night everyone always wishes they could have.
He threw the ball off the backboard to himself for TWO SEPARATE DUNKS, caught countless lobs, and hammered down infinite dunks.
Actually, I lied. Not everyone envisions a senior night like this. I just wanted to hit a three-pointer or two and come away with the ‘W.’ I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to throw myself an alley-oop off the backboard.
