Tunisia’s Head Coach Slaps One of His Players in the Face (VIDEO)


Tunisian Basketball coach slaps one of his… by SassyBooBoo

Above is an amazing, hilarious scene from inside the Tunisia huddle, prior to them losing by 47 points yesterday to Team USA in the Olympics. Deadspin put it best: “You may suck at basketball, Tunisia, but your old people sure know how to throw a proper slap. Good job.”

    Wow, you never do that to a professional player. That’s a real sign of disrespect. Serves him right for losing the game.

  • huami

    I meant, served the coach right that he lost the game very badly

  • LA Huey

    I wonder how he and Robert Horry would get along

  • bike

    If Bobby Knight saw that he would love it. He might even pursue a coaching gig in some small North African country.

    I don’t really think this is a big deal, you can barely call that a slap, the player isn’t paying attention before one of the biggest games of that group of peoples lives, and the coach gives him a knock to wake him up…

    @basketball_iq: dude stop talking BS about people handling AK’s in Tunisia thats ridiculous man the only people who have weapons over there is the army unlike the US

    Lol @ lever. Man y’all get political in here and I love it. Always great to be both political and a basketball fanatic. Waiting on someone to start talking about the Burma genocide haha.

    I agree, our government are the biggest cowards ever……………

  • Yesse

    I don’t know why he slapped him, but if the guy had a bad attitude, i think he deserved it.

  • Juice

    Imagine if that coach slapped Metta World Peace!

    “Coach, I think I have to puke, these American players are so much bigger and better than us, we just can’t bea” **SLAP**
    “Never mind coach, I feel fine.”

    Jokes aside, that one dude from Tunisia, the small forward got some game. It takes a lot to come from almost nowhere and have a decent game against the USA and get a few dunks/good plays despite being overmatched.

    You talking about Ramadan? Yeah I was surprised by Tunisia’s play. They had heart and did as well as they could. The major issue was their passing. @nbk idk what you’re implying but I assume seemingly it’s that I teach logic, or it’s just an ill fated insult.

  • lol

    i bet he farted or something, or it was the same guy who asked kobe for an autograph, except while the game was going on he was telling his team how he was going to ask kobe for an autogrpah…

    F*ck Deadspin. USA sports wouldn’t be sh!t without Africans–but it’s perfectly okay for white media members to berate African countries now? Cool. White supremacy has to be the most common (and dangerous) mental illness in America.
