Celtics Center Aron Baynes Momentarily Forgot Which Basket Was His During Game 4 Vs. Cavaliers (Video)
Boston Celtics big man Aron Baynes had a case of the Monday’s last night.
With his team trailing the Cleveland LeBrons by eight points midway through the fourth quarter of Game 4, Baynes unexpectedly got his hands on a juicy rebound in the middle of the lane with nobody between him and the basket. Unfortunately, Baynes got flustered and forgot he was on offense, not defense.
Instead of turning around, taking two steps, and throwing down a thunderous dunk, Baynes stood still until teammate Al Horford vehemently pointed at the basket and gave him the old “RUN FORREST!” As a result, the Cavs had plenty of time to close in and seal off Baynes’ path.
If you’re at work right now, just go ahead and clear your schedule for the next half hour. You’re going to want to watch this one over, and over, and over.

Hilariously, that wasn’t even the only thing poor Aron Baynes got mocked for on Monday. The Philadelphia 76ers’ official twitter troll, Joel Embiid, also burned Baynes for his choice of hairstyle AND for getting dunked on repeatedly.
Man bun is in NBA just to get dunked on

Of course, Celtics fans were quick to remind Embiid that Baynes is currently playing in the Eastern Conference Finals while Embiid was tweeting about it from his couch.
But all in all it was NOT a good night for Aaron Baynes.
