Shaqtin' A Fool: Kentavius Caldwell-Pope, DeMarcus Cousins, Ivan Raab, Mario Hezonja, Spurs-Knicks officials

The nominees for the first 2018 edition of Shaqtin' A Fool are:

  1. Kentavius Caldwell-Pope: The Lakers shooting guard tried to get fancy by tossing the ball off the backboard, grabbing his own rebound and slamming it home.  Unfortunately, his toss went over the backboard.
  2. DeMarcus Cousins: The Pelicans center gets away with a double dribble and scores in a full-court sequence against the Knicks.
  3. Ivan Raab: The Grizzlies center tries a behind-the-back pass to a teammate, but the ball goes off the back of his foot and out of bounds.  Raab was just called up from the G League, and if he's not careful, he might end up back there.
  4. Mario Hezonja: The Magic small forward tries a between-the-legs pass to a teammate, but the ball deflects off his leg, right to an opposing player.
  5. Officials at Tuesday night's Spurs-Knicks game: The refs needed a conference to confirm Manu Ginobili's line-drive 3-point shot after the Knicks tried to pull a fast one and pretend the ball bounced off the rim.
