As someone who tries to see the humor in all situations, I could not help but be amused at the absurdity of Shagari Alleyne yesterday. When he checked into the game in the first half (which in and of itself was bizarre), he came to the scorer’s desk just after the ball had been inbounded. However I guess the big man just assumed that he was ready to go in and he ran out on the court, while Alabama was bringing the ball up. Tubby caught this error and quickly grabbed the big fella, pulling him back and causing Shagari to have a perplexed look that is best akin to a youth soccer player being called offsides but having no idea what that rule means.
I will say this however. When Shagari understand the intricacies of coming in and out of games, you better watch out! Stardom awaits.
