In the midst of his rookie season with the Charlotte Hornets, the man they lovingly referred to as “Frank The Tank” in Madison, Wisconsin, found time to sit down and watch his alma mater take on Xavier in the second round of the 2016 NCAA Tournament. Fortunately for the big man, in was one of the most exciting games of the entire tournament.
Down 3, the Badgers’ Bronson Koenig hit a deep 3-pointer to tie the game at 63, and after an offensive foul charged to Xavier on the other end, Koenig pulled up and hit a ridiculous fadeaway 3 in front of his own bench to clinch the buzzer-beating win for Wiscy.
Kamisnky was watching the game, and he totally lost his mind as the ball fell through the net. Letting out a primal scream, the 6-foot-11 big man sprints into the kitchen where he executes a perfect slide and strikes a pose across the hardwood floor.
This is what March Madness does to all of us. And to see an NBA player react like normal people do makes Kaminsky’s reaction that much better.
