Sports At the Intersection of Love and Basketball

Making the rounds on the web today is a great video of our own Kevin Durant (resplendent in Sonics gold and green) getting a DJ-ing lesson at the 2007 NBA rookie photoshoot. However, I prefer watching this video of rookies Julian Wright, Al Horford, and Glen “Big Baby” Davis DJ it up in their brand new uniforms:
Horford’s hesitation is adorable and I love the joy, abandon, and skill with which Big Baby hits the decks. And I love Big Baby because this is the man who, after his team LSU advanced to the 2006 NCAA Final Four proclaimed, “We’ve still got tapeworms in our bellies. We’re still hungry.” I hope Big Baby blossoms under the tutelage of Boston’s newly-formed power trio of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce.
For fans who actually make it to the end of this video, please note our other ace rookie, Jeff Green, getting down in the background.
