Halftime for any sporting event is usually the best time to grab more drinks, booze and food without having to miss any of the action. But it seems like the halftime show at the first playoff game between Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets was one not to miss. A trainer and his incredibly talented dogs stole the show as the dogs cha-cha’d, scooter’ed, and back flipped their way into the audience’s hearts. They’re better than the cheerleaders!
Thank God these basketball players are already talented in playing sports because their voices probably won’t take them far.
Singing the Holiday classic “I Have a Little Dreidal,” the Houston Rockets have me cringing instead of smiling because their renditions sound completely tone deaf.
(And as for the Dallas Mavericks, I can’t say that I don’t feel the same way. But while embarrassing, both of these videos are very endearing.)
Like any sports fan, this kid has a lot of heart.
Devastated when one of his favourite players Jeremy Lin wasn’t going to be returning to the New York Knicks (he signed with the Houston Rockets instead), five-year-old Niam was recorded on video having an emotional breakdown.
Soon after, the video went viral. And somewhere along the way, Niam’s heartbreak reached Jeremy. Seeing how saddened the child was, the basketball player arranged to speak with the youngster on Skype. Thanking him for his support and encouraging him to keep cheering for the Knicks, Jeremy also answered some of little Niam’s questions.
This kid is ridiculously cute and he sure seems to know his basketball. Maybe one day, he’ll be managing a team of his own!
