While the USA took care of Team Brazil is rather simple fashion yesterday, Leo Barbosa got his own (minor) victory. Just watch:

I love how the first “You might be interested in. . . ” is “Coach K Enamored with Andre Iguodala.”
Haha he played big yesterday. It was a joy to watch.
Broke them ankles…
You guys got it all wrong. Andre just wanted to take a closer look to Barbosa’s new shoes! That’s all…..!!!
”While TEAM USA took care of Brazil in a simple fashion”…with a 2 point win and their flaws exposed?
Damn! SO excited the Raps picked up this scoring stud
that’s called a “wrap” not really a crossover.
But, it was still nasty.
good thing basketball isn’t like futbol.. brazil’s missed freethrows could mean death in south america..
he slipped on the logo, everyone’s been doin’ it and bitchin’ about it
very unfortunate for iggy. not to take away from the move, but the fiba advertisements on the floor have accounted for player slipping and falling on both offense and defense. but as we all know, floor condition is part of the game. Ive gotten crossed a couple times because the floor was dusty and slippery, hate that. lol.
agree with gpaul, i have seen a lot of people slip on those logos just running backwards on defense.
and by a lot i mean like 3 or 4
Gah, can’t watch these vids at work. Can’t wait to see it later.
agree with gpaul and riggs. all the slips have come near those advertisements on the floor
What, Nike’s Hyper line doesn’t compensate for slippery floor sticker ads? I gotta call Eastbay and cancel that HD ’10 i ordered on Sunday, sh*t is wack!
@Allenp I’ve never heard that term before “a wrap” Is that slang for an around the back move? Where are you from?
Barbosa is quick as hell with the ball.
slip or no slip he got schooled. barbosa is known for going streaking thru the lane and iggy tried to get in front of him. barbosa made a quick move the other way..there was no catching him.
not ever is barbosa going to be better than iguodola.
it just happens sometimes. look on youtube.com for mbenga blocks kobe. it justs happens.
the turkish men should clean up the floor.
everyone seems to slide on the court
They should put up the video of Angola’s Cipriano crossing up Argentina’s Delfino. After that he called up his chiropractor to schedule an appointment
Man that was mint. We’ll miss you, Speedy!
Capn barbosa is still a bad man, one of quickest in l. Great range on jumper too. He should kill in the great white north
Slippery advertisements or not, that was nice to see.
Yeah they really should sort out the slippery floor, its happened at least once in every game I’ve watched and the players don’t seem happy about it. Huge potential for injury there.
everybody has been slipping damn near every play. yall reaching
not really reaching seeing how iggy himself admitted that it was a nice move and hoped the shot didn’t fall.
advertisements…Iggy gets a pass
Man, Iggy got mixed GOOD haha.
He was cool about it on twitter though, gave massive credit to Barbossa.
BTW, I’ve heard that move called a “wrap” before. I use it a lot, it’s much easier than a ‘sharp’ behind the back cross.
It’s arguably more effective as it allows you to keep moving as well as change direction.
Simple Fashion!? Wait until its the konckout rounds and there playing Spain,Lithuania,and Argentina its gonna be tough for team USA
I’m from New Orleans, but that’s what they call that behind the back move everywhere I’ve been. From D.C. to New York, everywhere. At least that’s what I thought.
more like wrap around.
“swag” makes everyone think you can abbreviate everything.
