The last play shown in this video is a demonstration of a few things. First, it’s a demonstration of the indomitable power of the human spirit. Mitchell Robinson obviously rolled his ankle or something, yet he gamely continues to play and even takes part in a pick-and-roll to get a dunk. He could have just stood off to the side, but he kept going like nothing was wrong.
Second, it’s a demonstration of how the pick-and-roll is such an unstoppable play that you can run it successfully even when one or more participants therein are injured. Either that or the Hornets’ defense just sucks. Watching it again, it seems like Terry Rozier is just lazily walking around instead of trying to either harass the ball-handler or stick with the roll-man.
Third, it’s a demonstration of how unfair life is. Robinson can dunk easily even when he’s hobbled by injuries to his lower extremities. Meanwhile, somebody like me, who is mostly in the prime of his life and whose only injury currently is a blister on the side of his foot, has no realistic chance of dunking. Robinson could honestly probably still dunk on two broken legs. I’d have to have two non-broken legs plus six extra legs just to get my fingers to graze the rim. Why God has decided to curse me in this way, I’ve yet to receive a good answer for.
Don’t even talk to me about original sin right now. I don’t want to hear it.
