That NBA Lottery Pick:
Last night's Minnesota Timberwolves/Denver Nuggers affair had one of the more stranger moments that I'd ever seen in an NBA game.
The Timberwolves trailed by three and Denver was attempting to inbound the ball to run out the clock. Minnesota's Martell Webster ended up stealing the pass but for some reason forgot that his team was down by three.
Instead of shooting the three to tie the score, Webster went in for the dunk and caused this bizarre ending:
BEST OF MAXIM
Background: In Monday's Timberwolves-Nuggets game, the Nuggets were up 102-99, inbounding the ball along the sideline with 4.9 seconds left in the game. Timberwolves forward Martell Webster picked off the pass giving the Wolves a chance to tie the game with a three. I repeat, there were 4.9 seconds left in the game when he picked off the pass. The Wolves were down three. So...
When you're being paid a lot of money to do something you should probably be able to handle something like simple addition. Unfortunately for Minnesota's Martell Webster he couldn't remember the amount of points needed to tie the game against the Nuggets. Webster amazingly steals the ball from the Nuggets in OT and sprints down the court in hopes to tie the game at 102...
We’re not really sure what Minnesota Timberwolves guard Martell Webster was doing on the floor at the end of the game to begin with, but we doubt he’ll be there ever again.
With his team down by three to the Denver Nuggets and 4.9 second left on the clock, Webster miraculously stole the Nuggets’ inbounds pass. With a chance to be the hero, Webster raced down the court and instead...
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Martell Webster had a lot of questions to answer after Monday night's 103-101 loss in Denver to the Nuggets after a mental lapse which squandered an opportunity to tie the game with under 5 seconds left in overtime.
With 4.9 seconds left in overtime and the Nuggets holding a 102-99 lead, Webster stole the Nuggets inbounds pass. However, instead...
The Denver Nuggets were leading the Minnesota Timberwolves by three with 4.9 seconds remaining in the game. The Nuggets were in-bounding the ball when the Wolves, Martell Webster stealing the in-bounds pass (YES!). As Webster drives to the other end of the court he has teammates spotting up for the possible game-tying shot. What does he do? He drives the lane and dunks the ball,...
The Denver Nuggets were up 102-99 with 4.9 seconds last night when Minnesota Timberwolves' guard Martell Webster stole the ball. Do the math.
Yeah, he dunked it.
Every time you check your email,...

Minnesota was down by 3 points with 4.9 seconds left. Martell Webster grabs a key steal and was blessed with a chance to tie the game by sinking a 3 from behind the arc or dishing the ball to a fellow teammate to do the same. What does he do? ... He slam dunks the ball to force his team to into a loss . Idiot.
Hey Martell Webster? Congratulations, sir. You have just earned a significant spot on America's favorite podcast, THE BOZOS OF BASKETBALL. Way to go.
