No one but Malik Monk knows why Malik Monk was laughing while down 19 on a night he went 4-for-14 from the field, but everyone can agree it probably wasn’t the best time to be having a laugh.
The poorly-timed shot of the Kentucky bench with two minutes left in the game is a hot topic around Big Blue Nation right now and it is pretty tough for anyone to defend Monk’s playful mood during the end of that embarrassment.
You're down 23, I don't think this is how you act on the bench. pic.twitter.com/rcNs5HIODW

Who knows, maybe he remembered his favorite scene from Step Brothers or someone off camera was tickling his toes with a feather… But regardless of what he found funny, this image isn’t doing Monk any favors right now.
