Nothing seemed to be working for his slumping Dallas Mavericks ... until he suggested Vince Carter just go stand near DeMarcus Cousins for a second and see what happened. Game, Mavericks. Classic coaching, Rick.
Before that, though, Uncle Ricky sure seemed to be at a loss. What do you think had him so vexed? Best caption wins some appropriately named Dayton, Ohio-based pop rock. Good luck.

Carter (thinking): "Just keep smiling and laughing. Don't show fear."
Runner-up, The Devil: "I think I chipped a tooth. What do you think? I think I did. I can feel it. Well, going to have to miss some games. Rick!"
Second runner-up, Paolo: Roe: "... and then Blake said he was the best dunker of all time."
