Where "Un-amazing" Happens
Welcome to the unglamorous side of the NBA...
When players have a "bad day at the office"...
Erick Dampier of the Dallas Mavericks played 10 minutes in one game and 20 minutes the next but in those 30 minutes of action... this is what he produced:
NON SHOOTING STREAK
Kevin Burleson was once seen in the Charlotte Bobcats practice facility working on his jump shot until midnight. Do you know what happened next?
He missed his next 33 field goal attempts... in the span of 2 months.
The Indiana Pacers once lost a game because of a buzzer beating shot. They missed 10 free throws in the last 120 seconds of that game. Ouch!
Eddy Curry of the Knicks tried missing 4 dunk attempts... in the span of 4 days.
After 3 quarters of play, the Dallas Mavericks as a team have scored 61 points... but the player they were defending (Kobe Bryant) scored 62 points.
