Leandro Barbosa Destroys Andres Nocioni’s Ankles (VIDEO)

The Brazilian Blur hits ‘em with a vicious crossover.

Not much to say here. Just hope Andres Nocioni taped his ankles up real tight after this one.

    Why is Nocioni even jumping out like that on Barbosa? That’s what fake hustle gets you.

    His jumpshot still irritates me.

    ^^^heeeem! Props to Dro for hitting the J afterwards too. It doesn’t change the impact of the move, but it always bums me out when the guy misses the shot following a nasty cross/fake like this…

    To be honest, he didn’t even break his ankles. It was like he messed up his inner ear balance or something. Nocioni kind of just fell over like he was drunk and confused.

    Considering his DUI history Nocioni might’ve just actually been drunk.

    Nocioni smokes so much weed (he really does). He was probably faxed and confused.

    Off subject, but Ball Up Streetball sucks now, they need to bring Hot Sauce, The Main Even, The Helicopter, Spider, Alimoe and some others back. That show is a hot mess now.

    so why didn’t the help defender try to block it? His release is so low I think he had a chance.

    Did the announcer say “Michael Jordan” at 0:15? It’s a nice cross-over but I wouldn’t compare Barbosa to Jordan.

    It’s a shame Barbosa has such a low bball IQ. He’s a great athlete and he’s got some skills.

    He said it reminded him of some Jordan old playoff play. Didn’t even bother to tell us which one. That’s 3-point legend Oscar Schmidt posing as color commentator. He’s just awful and ill-prepared. Even Bill Walton is better than him.
