Sure Shot

They say a picture’s worth 1,000 words. But you only need a couple to win.

The NBA D-League Showcase in January was once again a great place to spot hidden gems and future NBA players playing very competitive basketball. It was also the scene of, at least based on this photo, one of the most painful collisions you can have on the court. More than anything, this shot begs the question: What happens when a Stampede runs into Armor? Got any ideas? Give us your best caption for this photo.

Whoever writes the funniest caption will win a dope prize from our vault and see their name in Trash Talk next issue.
