Phoenix Suns Inbound Fail Is Almost Too Stupid to Believe (Video)
Judging by this idiotic Phoenix Suns inbound fail, I’m going to go out on a limb and say Eric Bledsoe did not happen to catch the highlights of last Wednesday’s Heat-Timberwolves game.
If Bledsoe had seen those highlights, then he probably would have learned from the epic mistake made by Norris Cole. Down by one point with just 41 seconds left in the game, Cole tossed the ball to Hassan Whiteside to inbound after a Minnesota bucket. However, he did so while standing out of bounds, which means Cole actually inbounded the ball himself. So when he pointed to the baseline and made Whiteside step out to inbound it again, Minnesota got the ball right back.
On Tuesday night, just five days later, Suns guard Eric Bledsoe did nearly the same thing. After a Houston bucket midway through the first quarter, P.J. Tucker inbounded the ball to Bledsoe, but Bledsoe thought Tucker was just giving him the ball to inbound. So he stepped out of bounds, giving the ball right back to the Rockets.
Take a look:
Everyone knows that in basketball it is important to master the fundamentals. But honestly, who would have thought the pros would need a refresher course on INBOUNDING THE GODDAMN BALL.
