In what has to one of the most unusual fouls in NBA history, oddball Dallas Mavericks guard Delonte West gave Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward a "Wet Willie" during last night's game.
It happened during the second quarter of the game when West walked over to his opponent and stuck his finger in Hayward's ear.
Jazz announcers jumped all over the act.
"The low of lows in sportsmanship," one said. "I've never seen that in professional sports— a finger in the ear," said the other.
West was just called for a blocking foul on Hayward before he walked over and touched him. It's hard to see where West's finger was before the incident. He received a technical for the childish offense but was not ejected.
Maybe West just saw the 'The Three Stooges' movie and was doing his best impersonation of Moe.
Either way, Hayward had the last laugh after the Jazz beat the Mavs, 123-121, in three overtimes.

We...
Honestly I don’t know what to make of this thing. Most of you have probably heard by now that Delonte West fouled Gordon Heyward the other day during the Mavs/Jazz game. West seemed pretty flustered by it so he decided to give Heyward and old school Wet Willy. Yes, he actually put his finger in his mouth and then put it in Heyward’s ear.

The Dallas Mavericks are the defending NBA Champions, and they currently sit with a record of 34-26. That is good enough to be positioned with the sixth seed out West right now, but also only 2 1/2 games ahead of the hard-charging Suns who occupy the ninth spot. The Maverick players are saying their goal is to repeat at the moment, and I am sure they want too, but it is hard to argue...
