Pistons-Knicks Game Becomes Site of Incredible Dance Battle (Video)

Detroit Dance Battle

Hardened veterans of the dance wars know that dance battles can break out any time, anywhere, between anyone. And yet the “Dance Cam” at basketball games is normally a peaceful place for civilian dancers to goof off in front of the camera. But that was not the case at a recent NBA game between the Detroit Pistons and the New York Knicks.

The battle began when a young fan was captured on the “Dance Cam” and went above and beyond his call of dance. He was rewarded with a lot more time on camera than was expected, which he filled with relish. But his time in the spotlight wasn’t over after the camera cut away, as an unusually funky usher got drawn into challenging him to an impromptu dance-off.

As you might expect, watching this unfold is a lot more fun than just reading about it. Luckily, you can do just that by taking a look at the video below. It might not be my place to do this, but I think I’m going to have to hand the victory over to the kid.
