Who knew the French can act just like us gauche, unwashed Americans? Here’s a clip passed along to me from my pal Slade from the French basketball All-Star Game where a fan wins €100,00 (or like $3 million or whatever the exchange rate is these days) for sinking a halfcourt shot.
What’s more impressive in this clip? The way all the players react like Dikembe Mutombo judging the dunk contest? Or the amazing Bruce Springsteen-worthy powerslide the guy does at center court after making the shot? Yeah, it’s the powerslide.
