Kemba goes for the Shaqtin' 2016 top spot.
Sometimes when you shoot a basketball, it just feels right. For NBA players, feeling good about a shot almost always means its going in. Until it doesn’t. While Nick Young was the previous champion of celebrating too early, Kemba Walker of the Charlotte Hornets is giving him a run for his money after last night.
Because this is the internet, we measure success in memes. After last night, Kemba had more than a few memes made about him. Take a look at the original video, showing Kemba turning and dancing after a seemingly fortuitous roll off the rim, and then check out the aftermath under it. We’ve included the classic Swaggy P miss for comparison. Swaggy P must be pleased someone is finally taking the heat off of him.
