I watched my daily hour of Sportscenter last night, and caught the altercation between Boston's Ray Allen and Cleveland's Anderson "Wild Thing" Varejao. Cleveland was up big halfway through the 3rd quarter and Boston was at the charity stripe. Allen and Varejao got tangled up jockeying for position on a made free throw, when Varejao, knowing that Allen's arm was caught up between one of his Brazilian waxed arms and his body, slung Allen to the ground. Allen responded with a convenient left elbow that appeared to land at or near Varejao's man berries. An unphased Varejao (WOW), arms raised, continued to taunt Allen with his not so intimidating stare. Close-up super slow-mo instant replay confirmed Allen's retaliatory cheap shot. The funniest part of this clip is not the altercation, the fact that I get to use "man berries" in a blog post, or even Varejao's ridiculous chia pet hairdo, but the responses by Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson:
Van Gundy: "Wow, he didn't even bend Varejao over with that! I'm impressed by Varejao!
Jackson: "I'm not!"
Ah yes, borderline homoeroticism invades NBA basketball.
