OH MY GOODNESS VALENTINE


hmaster1332

Noooo…nooo…no….noooo…noooooo…nooo


elpalomalo

That is NOT the shot at that moment


Appropriate-Blood108

That's Curry's range... C'mon....😔😔😔


chuckdoria

Not in a 2 possession game where you've worked this hard to get back in it... You can get a better shot....


2KareDogs

That shot sent his ass out the league lmao. It was about time.


BikeInWhite

It makes me wonder if there's been any other moment like that for another player. A fuckup so egregious that it cements into place the player's worst flaws and makes the entire league go "nope".


SomeGuyNamedGuy

I remember when [DeAndre Jordan threw a full court heave to the stands](https://youtu.be/wjsRVw1FjiU) and got waived the next day lmao


ThatGuyWhosTheMam

All bro had to do was outlet the ball


Drewsteau

Bro thought he was KLove 💀


7foot6er

picked up by the sixers. thanks doc


BikeInWhite

That's a great example! The title of that youtube clip is gold too. Though in DJ's case, he's such a good dude that superstars like KD kept lobbying owners to sign him to deals. So he stuck in the league way past the the point of being a usable player.


the_nibblonians

Why didn't Wayne Ellington have a ladder ready to catch that pass?


Fostereee

Sam Decker's shaqtin moment comes to mind.


JoJonesy

wait when the fuck did we sign denzel valentine


ItsN0tTheB0at

was just wondering the same thing...


FinalsMVPZachZarba

We gave him a training camp deal around Aug 22.


Express-Pandas

Was about to ask but it seems like even Celtics fans can't give an answer lmao


pkballr

I was so mad at the Kings for not drafting him, instead drafting Giannis' dad which was somehow worse.


ItsN0tTheB0at

just think, though, if the Kings hadn't drafted Papagiannis we wouldn't have found out that Boogie Cousins was into hot yoga...


iSleepUpsideDown

Deserved just for that shitty shot Yeah you know the one

Nooooooooo…..No….


BlueLanternCorps

The utter despair in their voices


SuddenDeathWish

poor guy probably can’t sleep some nights thinking about the reaction to that one 💀


Sad-Kaleidoscope4331

Absolute classic.


essosinola

lmao this is a textbook example of a role playing not knowing his place on the team. Shit like this is exactly how dumb role players with egos get passed over for less talented guys who know their role and play within themselves. In their heads these dudes are just temporarily embarrassed all-stars.


International-Fig905

😂😂😂😂 just seeing this I’m over here in tears


moneyman2222

The only people who should be taking that is Steph or Dame


pureply101

Luka and Trae


moneyman2222

Ok there's only 4 people who can take that shot lol


2KareDogs

LeBron when he hits the LeFuck You 3. That’s 5, but that’s it.


2277love

Iggy when the martians have death beam on earth.


MrAnder5on

Me 24/7 but I'm built different


ducksonaroof

I would've been fine if Zach did it


shockandguffaw

Man, that shot happened during the pandemic?? Time is dumb.


thesch

Not that he was ever all that good in the first place but I feel like that shot essentially ended his NBA career. He's never gonna get a chance to be anything other than an end of bench guy playing garbage time minutes ever again.


clayjay17

Frank Nitty ended his career in the Drew league, along with this shot lol


d1g1tal

nitty on the beat


1_quantae

That’s so crazy considering how good he was at MSU. One play can really change your entire career


theclownwithafrown

No he was garbage before that too


LongLiveTheChief10

Lol right. One of the worst picks we made in an era of bad picks.


theclownwithafrown

Lauri wasn't a bad pick he just needed a better team and coach to look good. Our coaching staff did not do him any favors


LongLiveTheChief10

Lauri is a mid tier rotation player but yeah he's one of the bright spots in those years.


theclownwithafrown

And Wendell has really blossomed in Orlando and hasn't Gafford been killing it in Washington?


seanconnery69696

Yeah denzel, you can't just walk up to the bar and order yourself a bj shot, it's awkward


SevenHunnet3Hi5s

we just all thought of that shot as soon as we read his name didn’t we


Tantle18

No…….nonono no….. no


Sufficient-Tie-4417

The 30 ft hesi stepback brick that doesn't even graze the rim is his signature move.


i_will_mull_it_over

yer a wizard, denzy


fred_crumbs

That's Summer League champion Denzel Valentine to you.


KingSwagamemnon

I used to work with an obviously gay guy named Denzel valentine at a restaurant near a college campus and one day some college football player gave him their number and he was so excited but they were just fucking with him, so I always root for Valentine to do well on behalf of all Denzel Valentines.


Atl-Fan_FTS

Some people just fucking suck.


nateaff

To be fair, if your name is Denzel Valentine and you can’t get a date that’s kinda on you


TheRealTofuey

Sad that this is definitely it for his NBA career


beatrailblazer

I really thought this dude was gonna be nice


BabaBrody

Just in: Celtics are signing Denzel Halloween to an Exhibit 10 contract. He will compete for a roster spot through the fall.


dogpoopandbees

Duh


MintyFreshBreathYo

I didn’t even know he was still in the league


diamondisunbreakable

Read the title quickly on thought it said Denzel Washington


NolaBrass

Denzel Washington played JV college basketball under PJ Carlesimo. He’s probably the most famous basketball player to come out of Fordham and he never even got into a varsity game haha


WideCoconut2230

I liked Denzel's son Jesus Shuttlesworth. He was the best player who ever played at Big State U.


Medium_Persimmon_177

still my favorite basketball movie, (and one of my favorite movies period)


ERAW7311

My boy 🥲


raylan_givens6

i thought he was a bull


HoorayPizzaDay

Thats who drafted him 6 years ago


LazyTitan___

Lazy Valentine romance joke


yeartwelve

my friends sister banged this guy! heard he's an awful lay


darkzork

Makes sense to get rid of valentine's after the whole ime and female staffer incident


HotdogIsaSandwitch

This dude should have been out the league the day he first stepped on an NBA court. Worst ball IQ in history.
