To celebrate this Sunday’s Academy Award ceremony, Pippen Ain’t Easy is handing out an Oscar of our own.
The first annual Pippen Ain’t Easy Best Actress award.
This award is given to the one player who put on the best performance of the year in the field of acting on the court. We’ve all seen this before, a player taking a dive for a foul or a quick timeout in a pressure situation during the end of a game. Or in the playoffs to induce a suspension (see Paul Pierce’s antics in last year’s finals). We are prepared to give away this year’s award to the unanimous winner. This player put on a performance for the ages; it has been hailed as one of the finest comedic performances in at least five years.
And the Oscar for Best Worst Actress goes to…
Chris Bosh for his performance Thursday night against Carlos Boozer.
Boozer twisted and his elbows came up by Bosh’s face. Bosh took this opportunity to take a dive and draw a foul. The sad part is it worked, he drew the offensive foul. But, as the fans at the United Center so clearly saw given their loud disapproval of the call upon replay, Bosh so clearly took a dive that it was the cherry on top of his absolutely disgusting night on the court. Bosh made one shot all night and is forever going to have to live down his blatant dive.
We leave you with footage of this award winning performance. Show your friends, maybe we can get an encore performance next time the Bulls take on the Heat. So without further ado, the master of comedy: Chris Bosh starring in ‘Man Falls to Ground Like Idiot While Having The Worst Night in NBA History” featuring Carlos Boozer.
