You'll have to excuse us for missing this particular crossover as we jumped from game to game Wednesday night. With the lowly Washington Wizards down 25 late in the third quarter to the Orlando Magic, our eyes were focused elsewhere. But they should have been focused on this one, watching Kirk Hinrich(notes) completely cross over J.J. Redick(notes) so severely that Redick not only fell down, but feebly attempted to tackle Kirk by the ankles as he "flew" by.
The Magic bench, as it should, fell into fits of laughter.
J.J. Redick (AND1 Mixtape name: "Kia Sorrento Killah") isn't exactly known for his defense, but Kirk Hinrich (AND1 Mixtape name: "Pressed Slacks Attack") isn't exactly known for his offense, either. So there you have it -- bad offense will always beat bad defense.
Dan Devine thought that either Redick or Hinrich's AND1 nicknames should list as the following:
"Hot Apple Cider."
"Grouper Lathe Osborne."
"L. Ron Hovered."
Eric Freeman? He preferred "Chamomile Thunder." Now we want to hear from you.
Give us your best AND1 Mixtape nicknames for our pasty brethren. Keep it clean and funky, just like the two players going at it in the video.
