ANDIt is becoming common for NBA benches to celebrate in an angry and even disrespectful way a brilliant action by a teammate, the last example was played by substitutes for the Boston Celtics.
Night after night in the NBA after a ‘donkey’ by Chris Paul to an opponent, a triple from the Curry logo or a poster of Antetokounmpo, the cameras are almost fixed more on the reaction of the substitute teammates of the protagonist of the spectacular play than in the player himself, and it is that the fan of the best basketball league in the world begins to get used to enjoying this show of the substitutes.
In the last Boston Celtics game, one of the team’s less common players, Payton Pritchard, with the score more than resolved in his favor, chained a series of three triples in a row, causing his teammates to increase their level of play. triple after triple celebration.
These celebrations have caused several readings in the world of basketball. The first of them and the most inevitable is to wonder if this show is really ‘necessary’ with the game already resolved as it happened last night, +31 for the Boston Celtics, and considered more a lack of respect for the rival than a simple celebration.
Another interpretation, as could also happen last night, is if they are not ‘mocking’ a teammate who does not have many minutes and may be the ‘worst’ player on the team or if, on the contrary, those celebrations and that show that does not leave from being almost more than a television show, it can serve as motivation to a player who has practically no minutes in the team rotation.
What is clear is that whatever it is, and drawing the conclusions and interpretations that each one wants to draw, the NBA fan will not tire of seeing this type of celebration from the NBA benches.
